Have made it back to Nashville from Houston and will be at Jeff Fisher's news conference to see what the Titans are willing to say about Albert Haynesworth at this point. In the meantime I've been catching up on a lot of reading, and hope it may be of some service to you...
- Houston's win over the Titans ranked as the biggest in the franchise's brief history, writes John McClain.
- Richard Justice says Andre Johnson and the Texans are showing that character counts in team-building.
- Jeff Fisher regretted not taking the wind in the fourth quarter, says McClain.
- A look at the Titans' failed fourth-down attempt at the end, from Meghan Manfull.
- Dale Robertson ponders the irony of Matt Schaub finishing the game and Albert Haynesworth getting hurt.
- Kris Brown got off the hook for a missed 26-yard field goal, from the Chronicle's notebook.
- A Saturday off helped the Jaguars break a four-game losing streak Sunday, writes Michael C. Wright.
- The Jaguars put together a flawed performance that was just good enough, says Tania Ganguli.
- Gene Frenette says at least the Jaguars could take solace in retrieving a kindred spirit that defined this team in 2007.
- A defensive stop was a big development against Green Bay, says Garry Smits.
- Dennis Northcutt recovered from a big drop to make a big contribution, writes Smits.
- Jack Del Rio says it's not a sure thing Gregg Williams won't be back as defensive coordinator, reports Vito Stellino. (Chris Mortensen has reported otherwise).
- The Titans' loss in Houston means they need to win Sunday to be sure they are the No. 1 seed in the AFC, writes Jim Wyatt.
- Haynesworth could be out until the playoffs with a knee injury, reports Wyatt.
- Joe Biddle thinks the Titans' chances at a long field goal try by Rob Bironas were better than the fourth-down pass play that failed.
- Andre Johnson did a lot of damage to the Titans, says Gary Estwick.
- Matt Schaub proved tough this time, from the Tennessean's notebook.
