Titans Take Eight-Point Lead Over Texans On Pick Six By Alterraun Verner

It's been an ugly one in Houston between a couple of AFC South foes. Jake Locker, quarterback of the Titans, and Matt Schaub of the Texans have both had a rough go of it in a smash mouth type of game. A fourth quarter touchdown reception by Titans tight end, Delanie Walker brought them the lead at 17-16.

On the ensuing possession, Schaub was picked off by Tennessee cornerback Alterraun Verner and he returned it to the house to extend to an eight-point lead on the road. The play appeared to have some major miscommunication by the Houston offense, as Schaub threw the ball towards the sideline while the receiver kept going upfield.

The Texans have the ball once again late in the fourth.
