The Titans are talking about the Texans | Enemy Intel

Titans Head Coach Mike Vrabel on things Texans QB Tyrod Taylor does well: "The ability to scramble. The ability to mix in whether it is the RPO game or him running with the football. I think that will always be something that is critical to understand with Tyrod (Taylor), who has won games in this league. We will have to try to make sure we are good on the edges and when we rush. It is probably a different style each week, and his style is such that if all the rush lanes aren't sound, he will be able to put the ball away and gain yards. Everybody has their back turned covering man-to-man, so if we are reckless in our rush, he can make you pay."

Titans Defensive Coordinator Shane Bowen on Taylor: "You've got to be aware of him. He can hurt you with his legs. He's got the ability to scramble. He took a big one against Jacksonville. They didn't have the edge, and he ran 25, 30 yards down the field. He's got that ability, so you've always got to be aware of it."

Titans S Kevin Byard on Taylor: "Before his injury, he was playing pretty well for those guys. Now he's back, and he can move around, do a lot of different stuff."

Bowen on Texans WR Brandin Cooks: "He's an elite receiver. He's got speed. He can run all the routes. It's a big challenge for us to try to keep the ball out of his hands. They're looking for him, as they should be. In my mind, he hasn't dropped off one bit. He does everything well in terms of his routes. He can take you down the field. He can get open underneath. He does a good job. He's a whole receiver, in my opinion."

Byard on Cooks: "Brandin Cooks is still a really great receiver in this league. He's a vertical threat. A guy who's hurt us in the past as well."

Titans QB Ryan Tannehill on the Texans Defense: "They have some talented players on defense. They can make plays. They can put pressure on you."

Vrabel on Texans DB/Return man Desmond King II: "He has done a fantastic job. He is a very good returner. He is a strong returner. He is much different than the player that we played last week. Is going to catch it and he is going to use his play strength to get north and south. Defensively, he has done a nice job. He is disrupting the football. He has had some caused fumbles hammering at the football. He plays outside for them, has played inside. We will have to make sure that if we catch it on him, we put it away."

The next time you can see the Texans at NRG Stadium will be on November 28 as they host the New York Jets in Week 12. Kickoff is set for noon CT. Click here for tickets.
