RTC: Texans due to beat Baltimore

Reading the coverage…

Houston Texans

It’s time for the Texans to finally beat Baltimore, says John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.

Houston is one of two finalists for Super Bowl LI in February of 2017, says McClain.

Aaron Rodgers exposed real coverage limitations for the Texans, says Nate Dunlevy of Bleacher Report.

Indianapolis Colts

The Colts waived quarterback Chandler Harnish and outside linebacker Jerry Brown and signed free agent tight end Weslye Saunders, says Phil Richards of the Indianapolis Star.

Andrew Luck is already so good, it’s a surprise when he struggles, says Conrad Brunner of 1070 The Fan.

The loss to the Jets was about inadequate personnel, not an emotional letdown, says Dunlevy,

Dunlevy’s progress report for the Colts.

Jacksonville Jaguars

A groin injury has kept him out of action for the full season, but Daryl Smith could be back in action against the Raiders, says Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union.

Mike Mularkey would like to see Blaine Gabbert run more, says Stellino.

Ryan O’Halloran of the T-U takes a first look at Oakland.

Tennessee Titans

The way the AFC is playing out, the Titans are just one game out of playoff contention, says Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.

Tennessee planned on courting defensive end Mario Williams before it got distracted by Peyton Manning and Williams signed with the Bills, says John Glennon of The Tennessean.

Chris Palmer created predictable tendencies against the Steelers in order to give himself room to break them, sometimes with Jared Cook, says Tom Gower of Total Titans.
