Times NFL writer Sam Farmer poses--and answers--the burning questions for this week's games: Question: Remember the Titans? Answer: Neither do we.

For six years, Kevin Carter repeated his senior year of high school. Always the nice-looking new kid, he studied math and English, made friends, scored drugs from other students. And busted them. He's 24, but his face is as unlined and pink-cheeked as a 10-year-old's. He's loose-jointed, rangy, adolescent. He could have passed as a high-school senior for many more years.

The trade gives the Rams two first-round picks, adding to their original No. 20 selection in April's draft. The Titans had the No. 29 selection.

Following the first game between Houston's old team and its new one, the Tennessee Titans went out of their way to praise the expansion Texans. Although Tennessee won Sunday's game, 17-10, the Texans earned their opponents' respect by showing that this could soon become an interesting rivalry. Steve McNair threw for two touchdowns and Eddie George ran for 86 yards to help the Titans -- formerly the Houston Oilers -- defeat the team that succeeded them.
