Reading the coverage: MJD sleeps alone

Houston Texans

John McClain says Titans-Texans is turning into a serious rivalry. I heard a lot of people asking about that in Tennessee’s locker room Thursday and I think it’s being overplayed, quite frankly.

Houston is catching the Titans at the wrong time, says David Barron.

Jacoby Jones is coming along slowly and Glenn Martinez could work as the punt returner for the Texans, says Dale Robertson.

Because the Titans are talking about revenge, it must be a rivalry, says Alan Burge. Maybe for Houston. The Ravens and Colts rank well ahead of Houston on the Titans’ list of top rivals.
