Lamar Miller also had a big game on the ground with 162 yards and a score, which was a 97-yard touchdown run, good for the second longest in Monday Night Football history. The Texans had this success all in honor of their owner, Bob McNair, who passed away at the age of 81, over the weekend. The team celebrated his life with a pregame moment, while also debuting a patch on their uniforms with his initials "RCM."
Deandre Hopkins was Watson's favorite target, catching five passes for 78 yards, while Demaryius Thomas got his first touchdown since coming over from the Denver Broncos.
Marcus Mariota stayed hot since a tough outing a few weeks back and an injury last week, throwing for 303 yards and touchdowns to Johnu Smith and Corey Davis. He completed 22 of his 23 passes, including his first 19 attempts, before his first in completion came in the third quarter. Although, their loss drops them to 5-6 overall and 2-5 on the road, putting a damper on their division hopes, while also hurting them in the Wild Card race.
The Texans have now won four of their five home games this year and will look to stay hot against the Cleveland Browns at home next week. For the Titans, they will return home next week, looking to get back to .500 against the New York Jets.
