Tennessee Titans (1-1)
I’ll admit when I’m wrong and I was wrong in thinking the Texans would defeat the Titans by 14 or more points this past Sunday. The Titans are a much better team than I thought they were, so props to the Titans and the pressure they put on the Texans in Week 2.

Titans head coach Mike Munchak said following the loss to the Texans, “It’s hard. It’s a feeling where you want to tell them remember what this feels like we don’t want to be in this position again. We played against a very good football team. We were toe-to-toe with them throughout the game. Things weren’t always how we wanted them to be. We didn’t make all the plays that were out there to make.”

Munchak also said about the final two minutes of regulation, which didn’t include the best from quarterback Jake Locker, “When it comes to offense, we have to covert, we have to make that play, we have to make that throw. And that is what is frustrating as an offense, we we’re backed up most of the day so things are already harder, but in a situation like that we have to win that phase, that two minute phase. They (Houston) won the two minute phase; we didn’t.”

Still overall, even with the mistakes, for the way the Titans took the Texans to the brink of defeat it proves the Titans are a much improved team already that what their fans watched last season, but that is just my opinion.
