Steve Slaton ran for 100 yards in both of his games against Tennessee last season. The Titans have vivid memories of Slaton's performances, and they aren't happy about it, per Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.
ESPN.com AFC South blogger Paul Kuharsky also weighs in on Slaton's back-to-back 100-yard games vs. the Titans. The success of the entire Texans offense this week hinges on the running game, writes Kuharsky.
