Titans 16, Texans 10

Texans on the clock

NASHVILLE — Mike Munchak believes the Titans aren't far off from becoming a playoff team, and he'll argue that he should keep coaching them in 2014.

Texans owner Bob McNair could hire a new coach before Houston decides who will be the No. 1 draft selection in May.

Chris Johnson ran for 127 yards and a touchdown in what might be his last game with the Titans, who beat the Texans to boost Munchak's case for staying.

"I think I have a good feel for what needs to be done," Munchak said.

With their 14th straight loss, the Texans clinched the top draft selection. Interim coach Wade Phillips declined to answer whether he's interested in staying with the Texans if he's not picked to take over.

    It was refreshing to see RHP Jacob Faria take the blame after the loss even though he gave the Rays a chance to win. Too often young pitchers are encouraged by what they did and not necessarily the outcome, but Faria, making just his fourth big-league start, came to the Trop to win, didn't, and pointed the finger …
