went just like you would have expected coming into the 2018 season. Houston Youth Christian Covington Jersey , clearly the superior team when it comes to roster talent, dominated the Indianapolis Colts. Sure, T.Y. Hilton and Andrew Luck looked scary from time to time, but seeing Jadeveon Clowney make it around the left tackle to recover a botched snap faster than Luck could get to a ball a foot in front of him was exactly the sort of dominance we all expected from the Texans’ defense. Sure, the offensive line still did its best impersonation of an elite set of traffic cones, but Nick Martin bulldozed some Colts, Deshaun Watson slipped his way through tackles, and Houston looked like it had finally found a way to win. J.J. Watt and Clowney showed us what those two could do when both were firing on all cylinders.It was time to get excited. Then halftime came, and once again, we witnessed Houston’s inability to make halftime adjustments at a pro level. While Deshaun Watson did manage to get a touchdown in the final three quarters of play (including overtime), it was yet another appearance of the All-Field Goal Offense 鈩?that saved the day. Is it wrong to feel that celebrating this win just feels cheap? The Texans faced what might arguably be the weakest opponent on a weak schedule and had to go into overtime to win on the leg of Ka’imi Fairbairn after trading field goals with the Colts. To make it worse, if overtime still worked in the old sudden-death manner, the folks in Indy would be celebrating a win right now.To borrow a phrase, it’s like backing into a W. For the amount of money fans are expected to shell out to buy tickets, pay for parking Authentic DeAndre Hopkins Jersey , spend on overpriced concessions and drastically marked up merchandise ($40 for a tee shirt that costs $4 to print, anyone?), and everything else that comes with being a fan of the Houston Texans, we deserve better than what’s being put on the field. Players like Deshaun Watson, DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller V, J.J. Watt, Jadeveon Clowney and Tyrann Mathieu deserve better than the game management we’ve seen over the course of the Bill O’Brien era. Maybe we’re just expected to be happy Houston finally won a game. Maybe we should get excited that Bill O’Brien staved off going 1-13 to elevate the team to 2-12 over the last 14 games. Maybe we should raise a toast to the slight spark of hope that we haven’t watched J.J. Watt’s career—you know, the guy who is arguably the best defensive lineman in NFL history—get flushed down the toilet. I suppose we should also cheer that we’re not seeing the same thing happen to Deshaun Watson. A Houston Texans win is a win, right? What do you think? Did this one give you all the feelz? Are you rushing out to Academy or the Texans’ team store to buy your new jersey, jacket, or other piece of memorabilia to celebrate the new one game winning streak? Let us know your take in the comments section. The Houston Texans wanted to honor their late owner and founder Robert "Bob" McNair, who died last week at age 81.They knew the perfect way to do that Monday night was to keep their winning streak going.Deshaun Watson threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score as the Texans set a franchise record with their eighth straight victory, 34-17 over the Tennessee Titans."The one thing Mr. McNair wanted was a winner," J.J. Watt said. "All he wanted was a winner. He wanted to win every week. He wanted a team that could win and bring a championship to this city. So to be able to win eight straight and to be able to win tonight for him was good Womens Whitney Mercilus Jersey , and we're going to try to keep doing that for him."Demaryius Thomas scored his first two touchdowns with Houston and Lamar Miller ran for 162 yards, including a 97-yard TD.The Texans (8-3) also saluted McNair by wearing decals in the shape of a football with white block letters bearing his initials of "RCM." With that tribute on the back of their helmets, they became the first team in NFL history to win eight games in a row after starting 0-3. They lead the AFC South by two games over Indianapolis."We need to try and keep getting better," coach Bill O'Brien said. "We need to take the mantra that we're going to improve every day."The Texans trailed by 10 early before reeling off 27 straight points.Houston receiver DeAndre Hopkins said there was no panic after the team fell behind in the first quarter."We've been down 0-3 as a record, so being down 10-0 on the board is nothing to this team," he said.Tennessee (5-6) finally scored again on a 48-yard reception by Corey Davis late in the third quarter, but the second TD by Thomas 鈥?this one for 10 yards 鈥?made it 34-17 with just more than eight minutes left.Marcus Mariota, who missed the second half of last week's game with a stinger, was 22 of 23 for 303 yards and two touchdowns. He completed his first 19 passes before an incompletion with just more than a minute remaining.Miller's 97-yard breakaway in the second quarter made it 21-10. It was the longest run in franchise history and the longest in the NFL since his dash of the same length for a touchdown on Dec. 28, 2014, with the Dolphins. He's the only player in league history with two career rushing touchdowns of 95 yards or longer.The Titans went ahead 3-0 on their first possession, and Jonnu Smith had a career-long 61-yard catch-and-run touchdown that extended their lead less than halfway through the first quarter.Houston got going after that, cutting the lead to 10-7 when Thomas grabbed his first touchdown since being traded from Denver on Oct. 30, a 12-yard grab with about six minutes left in the quarter.Watson put the Texans on top when he scrambled 15 yards for a score on the first play of the second quarter.The Titans went for it on fourth-and-inches from the 3 later in the second, but tight end Luke Stocker was stopped for no gain."If you look at their goal-line defense and having a lot of good knowledge of what they do on the goal line Womens Zach Cunningham Jersey , that's one play that had worked," Tennessee coach Mike Vrabel said. "It didn't work tonight and that's not the reason that we lost. That's a bad play."Miller's long TD , which helped Houston set a franchise record with 281 yards rushing, came on the next play. He took the handoff in the end zone and darted through a crowd of Titans before shedding one tackle and simply outrunning the rest of the defense."My whole mindset is just, don't get caught," Miller said. "Because ... when we played the Dolphins, I got caught, so all the guys were giving me a hard time. So that was the only thing on my mind."The Texans kicked a field goal as time expired in the second quarter to take a 24-10 lead into halftime.MCNAIR REMEMBEREDThe Texans honored McNair in a pregame ceremony, which included a video tribute to him while the Texas A&M Singing Cadets sang "Amazing Grace." While the video was played, one side of the video board displayed the words: "Faith, Family, Philanthropy, Football."Painted on both 25-yard lines was a football with his initials that looked just like the decals on the players' helmets.Television cameras panned to several fans with signs honoring the late owner. One read: "McNair Never Forgotten."WATSON'S WORKWatson has thrown 39 touchdown passes in his first 18 career games, which is third in NFL history behind Hall of Famers Kurt Warner (44) and Dan Marino (40). His 70 yards rushing on Monday were a career best and he tied Matt Schaub's franchise record by throwing a TD pass in his 16th straight game.INJURIESTitans cornerback Malcolm Butler left in the second quarter to be evaluated for a concussion and did not return. ... Houston WR Keke Coutee didn't return after injuring his hamstring in the third quarter.UP NEXTTitans: Host the New York Jets on Sunday.Texans: Host the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.
