The Houston Texans improved to 4-0 on the season after a solid 38-14 win over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, with the defense once again coming up big and the offense continuing to roll in methodical fashion.
In fact, "methodical" is exactly how Brett Kollman of Battle Red Blog feels about the victory on Sunday:
Wow. I'm not even sure where to start. This was one of the most methodically efficient games I've seen from a team that has become famous for methodically efficient games. The defense scored twice and (before garbage time) kept the Tennessee offense in check all day long. J.J. Watt distanced himself even further in his campaign for Defensive Player of the Year. Matt Schaub was smooth as one could ask for and didn't turn the ball over while the run game kept chains moving and drives alive.
Schaub was 20-of-28 for 202 yards and two touchdowns, Arian Foster rushed for 86 yards and one touchdown on 24 carries and the defense provided two scores of their own in the win for the Texans. At 4-0 on the season, Houston has staked its claim as perhaps the top team in the AFC.
The Texans travel to New York to take on the Jets on Monday Night Football in Week 5. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. CT with coverage on ESPN.
