   **What are your thoughts?**

Keep your eye on ...
The AFC's top rookie RBs: At a time when most rookie running backs are typically slowing down, Chris Johnson and Steve Slaton are heating up. With 300 and 342 total yards, respectively, over the last two weeks, the AFC's second- and third-ranked rushers are already two of the best young backs in the league.

Schaub's lasers: After missing four games with a torn MCL, Texans QB Matt Schaub came back with a vengeance last week, posting a career-high 414 yards against the Packers. While Schaub has played well in his last four starts, he isn't likely to have another career performance against Tennessee's third-ranked passing defense.

Tennessee's secondary: The Titans rank third in the AFC with 18 interceptions, led by five apiece from cornerback Cortland Finnegan and safety Michael Griffin. The two teamed up to intercept Schaub three times (two from Griffin, one from Finnegan) in Week 3.
