    HOUSTON -- While Kerry Collins was off on his own, Houston certainly did a lot to influence his season-low 50.2 passer rating. The Titans may be sack proof when they don't give one up in a game like this, because he was under steady fire.

    The final numbers: 15 completions in 33 attempts for 181 yards and an interception.

    The view from the back: "In our zone coverages, guys were making them look like man and guys would flash certain areas so he would have to throw the ball a little higher or guys would flash certain areas so he would have to throw the ball a little late," cornerback Dunta Robinson said. "We just did a lot, we mixed it up a lot and I think it kind of confused him a little bit."

    The view from the front: "We had a lot of pressure up the middle and we had him kind of retreating a little," middle linebacker DeMeco Ryans said. "We had him backpedalling a lot, had him throwing off his back foot which kind of made him miss a lot of throws... There game all works on timing and we were able to throw their timing off."

    How to limit Collins: Throw to Justin McCareins and he's sure to not find a way to catch it.
