Matt Hasselbeck has proven to be a class act during the process of Jake Locker becoming the starting quarterback.
Hasselbeck came in for an injured Locker and made some very nice throws against a tough Texans defense.
Coming off the bench is never easy to do, and that's especially true for a quarterback in his 14th season.
The turnovers by Hasselbeck weren't pretty, but the game was basically over by this point, with the exception of the first interception.
That interception wasn't the best throw, but Taylor Thompson made a rookie mistake by tipping a ball that he had absolutely no chance of catching.
Hasselbeck looked sharp for the most of the game despite the poor pass protection and his coming off the bench cold.
It's very probable that Hasselbeck will get the start against the Minnesota Vikings next week, and it's good to know that the Titans have a reliable backup quarterback to lean on.
Expect a superb performance from Hasselbeck next week after he has had a week of practice as the starter.
