Eye on the Prize: AFC South Standings after Week Two

Posted by Kevin Bowen on September 18, 2013 – 9:11 am

Each week will take a look at the rest of the AFC South and review the previous weekend’s games.

Here is a look after Week Two:

Texans 30, Titans 24, OT

-In arguably the most exciting game of the weekend, the Texans overcame a late fourth quarter interception and an injury to Andre Johnson. Quarterback Matt Schaub threw an interception with 4:59 remaining, which gave the Titans a 24-16 lead. The Texans answered with an Arian Foster one-yard touchdown run with just under two minutes left and Foster’s two-point conversion tied the score. Houston missed a last second field goal to win the game in regulation but with the flip of the coin toss, the Texans wouldn’t miss another opportunity. On the opening drive of overtime, Schaub found rookie wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins for a three-yard game-winning touchdown.

NEXT GAME: @Baltimore, Sunday at 1:00 p.m. EST

Texans 30, Titans 24, OT

-The Titans looked prime to take the AFC South lead with a huge road divisional win over the two-time defending champs. However, that 24-16 lead with under five minutes to play evaporated thanks to Foster’s touchdown run. Tennessee quarterback Jake Locker threw for two touchdowns but finished the game just 17-of-30 for 148 yards. An Alterraun Verner interception late in the fourth quarter gave the Titans an eight-point lead but the defense could not garner up one final stop.

NEXT GAME: San Diego, Sunday at 1:00 p.m. EST

Raiders 19, Jaguars 9

-It was a struggling afternoon for the Jaguars offense. While the Jacksonville defense hung tough in the red zone, the Jaguars offense barely got into the opponent’s 20-yard line. Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne was 25-of-38 for 241 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions. Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew was held to 29 rushing yards on 10 carries and his counterpart, Darren McFadden had 19 carries for 129 rushing yards. The Jaguars lone touchdown came with 2:53 left in the fourth quarter when Henne found Clay Harbor for a 13-yard touchdown.

NEXT GAME: @Seattle, Sunday at 4:25 p.m. EST.
