HOUSTON -- Reading the coverage of the Tennessee Titans ...

Houston’s tight ends get lost in the Texans' run game, and have a tendency to slip free against the Titans and make plays, says John Glennon of The Tennessean. Zach Brown says Owen Daniels and Garrett Graham are not very fast and he should be able to steer them.

To which I say: Brown talked very confidently about covering the tight ends to me as well. He’s set an expectation that things will be better for a team that’s struggled against tight ends during Mike Munchak’s time as head coach.

While teams gear up to stop elaborate passing attacks, the Titans are trying to go against the grain as a run-heavy offense, says Glennon.

How well the Titans adjust to the inevitable -- a defense taking away the run and forcing the game onto Jake Locker -- will tell the story of their season, says David Climer of The Tennessean.

The Titans need to rely on technique and stay on their feet against the Texans' cut blocking, says Glennon.
