Texans 38 -- Titans 14: A Hasslebeck at QB Means a Pick-Six Fest

If Texans fans were expecting tense fingernail-biting to become a part of their season this week, they were disappointed.

But it's the only disappointment they've had to endure so far in 2012, and the locals look in fine shape as the schedule finally begins to toughen up. A bit, anyway.

The only real suspense Sunday seemed to come with determining how many times NFL analyst Dan Fouts would refer to the Texans as the Titans, and the answer was "more than you'd think."

Once Titans QB Jake Locker went out on a Glover Quin hit, the outcome wasn't much in doubt.

And if your hopes depend on Jake Locker's prowess at QB, the outcome probably wasn't in much doubt anyway.

So the Texans train keeps rolling as anticipated, with the AFC Central still assumed to be a lock, an AFC Championship berth expected and a place in New Orleans for the Super Bowl in every fan's mind.

They're 4-0.

What can go wrong?
