The Tennessee Titans may have suffered their biggest loss on Sunday at Nissan Stadium even as they beat the Houston Texans 42-36 in overtime to stay undefeated.
The team lost Pro Bowl left tackle Taylor Lewan for the rest of the season with a torn ACL. He was replaced by 28-year-old journeyman Ty Sambrailo, who — aside from allowing a J.J. Watt strip sack that led to a Texans touchdown — played a solid game the rest of the way.
The Titans are tied for the fewest sacks given up this season (six). Tennessee coach Mike Vrabel said he’s confident in Sambrailo should he be the team’s left tackle the rest of the season. But the team does have strong depth and several options should he struggle.
“Ty’s played in this league; he’s played multiple positions,” Vrabel said. “He’s got versatility. Had the play in there with (J.J.) Watt early on, but I thought he settled down and played well like he has in the past when he’s come in for us.”
