It's going to be difficult job for the Texans' coaching staff to keep this team motivated as the season ends. I've been in a situation such as this before and it's not good when the team starts thinking about the draft and which coaches are going to keep their jobs.

Jones' return for a TD was the Titans' first since Justin McCareins returned a punt 58 yards for a touchdown at Atlanta on Nov. 23, 2003. ...
