Texans Rock Titans, Clinch Playoff Berth
(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) — The Houston Texans are heading back to the playoffs and setting records along the way.
The Texans clinched a playoff berth by throttling the Tennessee Titans 24-10 on Sunday at LP Field.
With four games remaining, the Texans (11-1) have set the franchise record for wins in a regular season. “We’re very happy, I can tell you that,” Kubiak said. “But I think they expected to get there, and they got there today. There’s a lot more to work on. We’ve got to continue to push our group.”
Quarterback Matt Schaub opened the scoring for Houston with a 54-yard touchdown pass to Lestar Jean with 12:29 remaining in the first quarter and did not trail after that. They led 14-3 after one quarter, and Schaub threw for 207 yards and two scores in the win.
Meanwhile, the Titans (4-8) committed six turnovers and managed only 89 rushing yards. “I guess that’s why we’re 4-8,” Titans coach Mike Munchak said. “We can’t make enough plays to win when we have an opportunity.”
