Monday Night Football Recap Week 11

The most underrated rivalry in the NFL took place on a Monday Night in Houston as the Tennessee Titans (old Houston Oilers) came into town to face the Houston Texans. The game was fierce (as expected) and filled with drama. Let the recap begin

Tennessee 20, Houston 17- Vince Young threw for 116 yards and a touchdown, and kicker Rob Bironas hit a 50 yard and the go-ahead 53 yard field goal to give the Tennessee Titans their fourth straight victory after an 0-6 start and split their series with the Houston Texans. The Texans had a chance to tie the game and send it to overtime, but Kris Brown’s 49 yard field goal attempt was wide left. It was the second game in a row that Brown has missed a game-tying field goal attempt to the left, as he missed a 42 yard field goal in Week 9 at Indianapolis against the Colts. Matt Schaub had a good night at QB for the Texans, going 25-39 for 305 yards with two touchdown passes to Steve Slaton and Andre Johnson, but it was a sound rushing game from Young who had 73 yards on 11 attempts, and Chris Johnson, who had 29 carries for 151 yards. The win not only puts the Titans back in the hunt for a playoff spot, it’s a blow to the Texans’ chances, but hope is not lost as they try to get their first playoff berth (and winning season) in franchise history. Titans (4-6), Texans (5-5)
