The former Oilers came into town looking to establish themselves as the team to beat in the AFC South. What they are leaving town with is the knowledge that the Texans are establishing themselves as just that. The Texans were dominating in all phases of the game and won the game 57 -14. The defense started it off with an Andre Hal interception in the Titans first possession. The offense took only 4 plays and a Lamar Miller 2 yard run to take a lead they would not relinquish for the rest of the game.

Defensively, the Texans had the second most turnovers in a game in franchise history with 5 totals (four interceptions and one fumble recovery). The four interceptions tied a franchise record (one was run back for a touchdown by ILB, Dylan Cole), and they held the Titans to a total of only 195 net yards for the game.

Offensively, The Texans gained 445 yards (173 rushing and 272 passing). They scored touchdowns of their first three offensive possessions and a total of 6 for the game. This attack was led by QB, Deshaun Watson by completing 25 of 34 passes for 283 yards, four touchdowns, one interception and a 125.0 passer rating. He also ran 4 times for 24 yards and one touchdown. Those four touchdown passes went to WR, DeAndre Hopkins, WR, and Will Fuller V (2) and RB, Lamar Miller.

This game was a view of the talent that has been assembled and gives hope to Texans Nation. Add the fact that the young quarterback, Deshaun Watson, showed great class by giving his first game check to 3 cafeteria workers that were affected from Hurricane Harvey. HOPE is alive and well in Houston!
