With the Titans’ top receivers all dealing with injuries or out, the only receiver available who was on the opening day roster, was Chester Rogers.
Despite that, he didn’t really help his quarterback and the game ended with Dontrell Hillard, A.J. Brown, Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, Dez Fitzpatrick, and Anthony Firkser all getting as many or more targets than he did.
Where he obviously hurt the team the most was the muffed punt that gave the Texans their only points of the second half with the go-ahead touchdown.
Ryan Tannehill had four interceptions, but no turnover hurt the Titans worse than the muffed punt and it was just another missed opportunity for Tennessee to get back into this game.
The Tennessee Titans’ three best receivers are A.J. Brown, Julio Jones, and Marcus Johnson. While Nick Westbrook-Ikhine gets more time because he can play inside and outside, there was a time early in the season when it looked like Rogers had a shot at being the “other” weapon in this offense.
Unfortunately, it looks like he is going to go into the “what could have been” category where Adam Humphries ended up towards the end of his career with the team.
