2010 Texans Watch-Texans Beat Down The Tennessee Traitors

Finally!  After four weeks of watching them lose winnable games to the Colts, Chargers, Jaguars and Jets, the Texans found themselves in a must win situation at 4-6 and playing their arch rivals the Tennessee Traitors in a critical AFC South division game.

Yeah, I'm still bitter about the Oilers bouncing to Nashville, and I'm gonna get my hate on for them twice a year.

Ahem, back to the post.

Glover Quin had a career day in picking off three passes and the Texans snapped their four game losing streak by administering a 20-0 beatdown on the Traitors at Reliant Stadium Sunday.   

I do mean literally.   In the fourth quarter emotions boiled over as the Texans were executing a long clock eating march down the field and Andre Johnson got into it with Titans safety Cortland Finnegan.  
Andre won the fight but he and Finnegan were tossed from the game.   Both players were also relieved of $25,000 from their wallets today by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell but weren't suspended..

It was also the second shutout in Texans team history, and it couldn't have come at a better time.  
Next up is a Thursday night game with Michael Vick and Philadelphia Eagles before the heavyweight rematch with the Traitors in Nashville.
