Houston secures No. 1 spot in draft with loss to Tennessee
Nashville, TN (SportsNetwork.com) - Neither team had a chance to make the playoffs, so they played for pride and possibly their jobs.
The contest was highlighted with records and milestones but one record stood out the most, it was for the Houston Texans. They fell to 2-14, tying a franchise worst record, and secured the No.1 spot in the upcoming draft.
Chris Johnson ran for 127 yards and a touchdown on 27 carries to lead the Tennessee Titans to a 16-10 win over the Texans. Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 15-of-24 passes for 166 yards and an interception.
