Sure, the secondary kind of folded on those last two scoring drives that the Texans mustered up to solidify their prowess atop the AFC South,
With that said, the secondary was really the key reason that the Titans came so close to pulling off this huge upset.
Verner's second interception of the season should have sealed the deal for the Titans when he returned it for a touchdown, but that's why the Texans are a Super Bowl-caliber team. Their offense is elite, and the Titans secondary got a little tired at the end. They're still worlds apart from the team that gave up a franchise-record 471 points in 2012.
Pollard also had his first memorable game as a Titan with his interception when the Texans had their starting field position at the 50-yard line. This was when the score was still tied 7-7, so that was a huge factor in keeping this game close early on.
Even in the loss, this performance by the secondary proves that this defense is so much better with defensive consultant Gregg Williams in the building.
