Houston Texans

Facing gut-check time, the Texans responded with a win in Oakland, says John McClain.

Troy Nolan was opportunistic with two interceptions in Oakland, says McClain.

Offensive backups like Joel Dreessen performed, says Dale Robertson.

Brian Cushing returns this week, says Robertson.

The Texans overcame obstacle after obstacle, says Richard Justice.

Dreessen could make Owen Daniels expendable long-term, says Lance Zierlein.

Indianapolis Colts

The Jaguars kicked the Colts in the gut, says Mike Chappell.

Defensive failures helped set up Jacksonville’s winning field goal, says Phillip B. Wilson.

Even with the Colts' pedigree, serious flaws are hard to overcome, says Bob Kravitz.

The Colts have suffered at the foot of Josh Scobee before, says Wilson.

A franchise-record 15 catches were lost on Reggie Wayne in the loss, says Chappell.

Kravitz’s report card.

The two turnovers in the red zone were killer, says John Oehser.

Jacksonville Jaguars

“It wasn't just a field goal, it was a burst of light on a season in trouble, that very spark the Jaguars had talked about needing all week long after two consecutive blowout losses.” Tania Ganguli’s game story.

Scobee gave the Jaguars the kick start they were searching for, says Gene Frenette.

Maurice Jones-Drew burned the Colts yet again, says Vito Stellino.

Gerald Alexander and Anthony Smith returned to make some big plays, says Stellino.

David Jones was upbeat after Wayne’s record day, says Jeff Elliott.

Tiquan Underwood was a key guy on the final drive, says Gary Smits.

Frenette and Stellino review the game in this video.

The Jaguars saved their season, says Vic Ketchman.

Scobee saved the Jaguars from moral victory talk, says Brian Fullford.

Tennessee Titans

Tennessee let a winnable game slip away because its offense was inept in the second half, its defense was worn down, and its special teams committed a blunder at the worst time, says Jim Wyatt.

The defense tired out in the second half, says John Glennon.

Marc Mariani’s gaffe offset his big play, says Glennon.

Chuck Cecil’s gesture will draw a fine and Kyle Orton thinks the Titans are cheap, say Wyatt and Glennon.

The aura of the Titans' home field is about gone, says David Climer.

An inept offense bears the burden for this one, says Joe Biddle.

Penalties played a role in the Titans giving up their most points yet, says David Boclair.

Something is not right with Chris Johnson or the offensive line, says Bob McClellan.
