Titans to Host Texans Sunday at LP Field





NASHVILLE, Tenn. —** The Tennessee Titans (5-8) host the Houston Texans (5-8) this week in the team's final regular season home game of 2010.  Kickoff at LP Field (capacity 69,143) is scheduled for noon CST on Sunday, Dec. 19. 


This week's game will be televised regionally on CBS, including Nashville affiliate WTVF NewsChannel 5. Kevin Harlanwill handle play-by-play duties, while Solomon Wilcots will provide analysis. 

The Titans Radio Network, including Nashville flagship 104.5 The Zone, will broadcast the game across the Mid-South with the "Voice of the Titans" Mike Keith, analyst Frank Wycheck, sideline reporter Cody Allison and gameday host Larry Stone.


Sunday's game is the second meeting between the Titans and Texans in a four-week span.  They squared off at Reliant Stadium on Nov. 28, when the Texans produced a 20-0 shutout victory.  In that game, Titans rookie Rusty Smith made his first career start at quarterback, and the Texans took advantage with three interceptions—all by cornerback Glover Quin.  Texans running back Arian Foster accounted for 218 total yards, including 143 on the ground and 75 as as receiver.

Despite the most recent loss and the Texans winning three out of the last four games in the series, the Titans own an all-time record against the Texans of 12-5. 

Following their home game against the Texans, the Titans will finish the season with two road games.  They travel to Kansas City to play the Chiefs on Dec. 26 and then to Indianapolis on Jan. 2.


Prior to visiting Tennessee, the Texans lost in overtime 34-28 to the Baltimore Ravens at Reliant Stadium on Monday night, Dec. 13.  The Texans have now lost six of their last seven games with their lone win in that span coming against the Titans.

The Texans currently own one of the NFL's top offenses and they have players at or near the top of several statistical categories.  Running back Arian Foster, a product of the University of Tennessee, leads the league with 1,330 rushing yards.  Quarterback Matt Schaub is 13th in the league with a 90.5 passer rating, and his primary target, wide receiver Andre Johnson, is fourth with 1,158 receiving yards.


Prior to the game, the Titans will host their annual shoe drive to benefit Nashville-based shoe charity Soles4Souls.  Fans are asked to bring "gently worn" shoes to the game and drop them in one of seven locations outside of LP Field.  Soles4Souls has distributed millions of pairs of shoes around the world to victims of natural disasters and those living in poverty.
