Texans vs. Titans first quarter recap

Texans 2nd drive (4 plays, 0 yards, 1:25) — On a third-and-6 from the Titans’ 6-yard line, rookie WR Nico Collins was ruled shoved out for an incomplete pass in the left corner of the end zone. Collins’ elbow hit simultaneously with his knee touching out of bounds, but coach David Culley challenged anyway, his first of his career. Tony Corrente, who has an 0-4 overturn rate on coaches challenges, upheld the ruling on the field. Houston settled for a 24-yard K Kai’imi Fairbairn field goal. Texans, 6-0

Titans 3rd drive (3 plays, 8 yards, 1:13) — The Texans defense stiffed up and stopped the Tennessee offense, turning them three-and-out.

Texans 3rd drive (9 plays, 46 yards, 4:39) — The rain started to pour in the middle of Houston’s drive. On a second-and-goal from the Titans’ 7-yard line, QB Tyrod Taylor rushed and leapt into the end zone, banging into two Titans along the way. Fairbairn misses the extra point in the pouring rain. Texans, 12-0

Titans 4th drive (7 plays, 31 yards, 4:39) — RB D’Onta Foreman was picking up yards and looked like he was going to get his revenge on the team that picked him in Round 3 of the 2017 NFL draft. Foreman had three carries for 16 yards and a catch fro 15 on a screen. However, the Texans stuffed RB Adrian Peterson for no gain on a fourth-and-1 from the Texans’ 31-yard line.

Texans 4th drive (3 plays, 7 yards, 1:20) — The Texans of the past eight weeks show up as Houston shoots themselves in the foot with penalties. The Texans go three-and-out, but manage to back up the Titans at their own 7-yard line.

Titans 5th drive () — Believe it or not, DT Ross Blacklock managed to line up on a spike play, providing for the Titans to try one last play with Tannehill looking for a throw into the end zone from the Texans’ 24-yard line. However, he wasn’t outside the tackle box, and with 0:09 to go, a mandatory 10-second runoff means it was the end of the first half. How bizarre.
