The Tennessee Titans fell 27-20 to the Houston Texans on Sunday in Houston.

Coach Bill O'Brien didn't fault Osweiler for trying to get the ball to Hopkins, and said he'll look to design better plays to help Osweiler avoid turnovers.

Against Houston, the NFL's lowest scoring offenses, both the Titans and Texans are averaging 14 points per game will play for the AFC South lead and getting an early touchdown could go a long way towards getting a win. The rookie had a 67-yard punt return for a TD, plus he added seven receptions for 81 yards and another score.

The Houston Texans (2-1) are coming from a 27-0 disappointing loss to the New England Patriots in Week 3.

Their failure to score Sunday against the Houston Texans wasn't almost as dramatic as a week ago, when a 17-10 loss to the Oakland Raiders came down to a short-range, fourth-down incompletion to Harry Douglas in the end zone.

That means running back DeMarco Murray will likely be the best Titans option in this game for fantasy owners.

Murray rushed for 95 yards and two touchdowns while Mariota finished with 202 passing yards and an interception.

"That's going to have to change", Mariota said. He had a career season past year with 94 catches for 1,088 yards, and Walker has been the Titans' biggest deep threat so far, with the longest reception this season at 32 yards. "I should have just put it on him a little more". The Titans also had receiver Kendall Wright back on Sunday after he missed the first three games with a hamstring injury.
