RTC: Texans perfecting art of losing late

Reading the coverage ...

Vince Young, Glover Quin and the Texans defense were among the least valuable players in the league Sunday, says Shutdown Corner.

Houston Texans

The pass defense undid the day in short order, says John McClain.

The Texans have perfected the art of losing late, says Jerome Solomon.

The secondary spelled doom again, says Dale Robertson.

What will Bob McNair do about this, and when? Alan Burge asks the question.

Indianapolis Colts

The big rally fell painfully short, says Phil Richards.

It was last year’s script with a new ending, says Mike Chappell.

It was a hard loss to swallow and a hard loss to forget, says Bob Kravitz.

The defense stiffened, but not soon enough, says Chappell.

The AFC South crown is still well within reach, says John Oehser.

Be thankful for another classic Tom Brady-Peyton Manning clash, says Pete Prisco.

Just another Colts-Patriots classic, says Don Banks.

The Patriots' defense got it done for Bill Belichick this time, says Jason Cole.

That young New England defense put a new twist in the rivalry, says Judy Battista.

Jacksonville Jaguars

A gem of a screen and a solid defensive effort put the Jaguars in first place, says Tania Ganguli.

Maurice Jones-Drew’s big play was in the middle of it all, says Vito Stellino.

The Jaguars are only going to the playoffs if they change their typical late-season course, says Gene Frenette.

The defense is coming of age at the right time, says Frenette.

The Jaguars’ defense did well to minimize the impact of turnovers, says Jeff Elliott.

The defensive line was charged up by memories of last year, says Stellino.

Tennessee Titans

The Titans lost the game and maybe their quarterback, says Jim Wyatt.

If you missed my take on the Young drama, it’s here.

There appears to be irreconcilable differences between Jeff Fisher and Young, says David Climer.

Climer asks if a handoff to Chris Johnson was Young’s last play as a Titan,

Clark Judge thinks the Titans can’t go back to Young.

The Titans third-down defense is far from fixed, says John Glennon.

Overtime penalties were killer, says Glennon.

Randy Moss has been a civil spectator so far, says Joe Biddle.

The Titans are now reliant on rookie Rusty Smith, says Glennon and Climer.
