The Tennessee Titans placed TE Taylor Thompson (knee) on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Nov. 5.

Week 13: at Houston Texans

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Zach Mettenberger had a big game vs. the Texans during Week 8, throwing 27/41 for 299 yards passing, two TDs and one interception. Nate Washington led the team in receiving with four targets for 4/68/0 receiving, but the TDs went Delanie Walker (nine for 4/37/1), and Justin Hunter (10 for 4/31/1). Since that game, Walker and Hunter have been favorite targets of Mettenberger. Last week, at Philadelphia, Walker led the team in receiving with 10 targets for 5/155/0 receiving, while Hunter also saw 10 for 4/64/1. Nate Washington (six for 4/63/0) was in the mix, while Dexter McCluster (three for 3/15/1) hauled in the other available TD pass from Mettenberger (20/39 for 345 yards passing, two TDs and one interception thrown, with five sacks taken for -46 yards). The Titans' passing attack has been enlivened with Mettenberger calling the shots. We'll see if he can put up 300 or more yards passing on the Texans in this game at NRG Stadium. The Texans' pass D is 31st in the NFL averaging 274.0 net passing yards allowed per game, with 20 TDs surrendered vs. 12 interceptions (tied for eighth in the NFL) and 21 sacks (24th in the league) generated so far. Last week, Andy Dalton wasn't sacked at all on the way to 24/35 for 233 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown; Brian Hoyer threw 20/50 for 317 yards, one TD and one interception with two sacks taken for -13 yards two games back. This is a good matchup for Mettenberger and company.
