The Houston Texans kept both of their streaks alive falling to the Indianapolis Colts 25-3 this afternoon. Not only have they lost in Indianapolis for the 12th straight time, but they’ve also lost their 12th straight game of the season.
Let’s be real, the only breakdown that needs to be discussed here is that of this team. I’m fine with losing for draft purposes, but do we have to look so embarrassingly bad doing it? Good lord, we made Trent Richardson look sort of good. That’s really all that needs to be said. Yet another game where the ending of the Case Keenum era is solidified in my mind. Sacks galore, fumbles for safeties, horrible intermediate throws, missing the blatantly open men… Enough said there too. This is all really beating a dead horse at this point. It’s the same thing every week, and just when you think it can’t get worse, it does. I mean c’mon guys, we know we’re bad. We know we’re probably going to get the first pick in the 2014 draft. Let’s at least finish out these next two weeks with some dignity.
Bright spots of the game for the Texans? As per usual there were few and far between, but today it was unequivocally Joe Mays. I’ve liked the pick up of this guy from the day he joined the squad. He’s been making plays ever since and he had an excellent day today with 5 tackles (2 TFL) and a sack.
The Colts, despite suffering even more injuries played rather well today. Their defense destroyed our offense, Andrew Luck was back to his old self, and they actually had a running game. It’s cool though. They needed the pick-me-up before limping into the playoffs to get one-and-done’d. Happy to oblige on our way to the #1 draft pick, Colts fans.
Now the Texans are facing down the Denver Broncos next week. Not only is Peyton Manning pissed that they lost last week, but we’re really owning that “worst-team-in-the-league” title. I’ll save it for the game preview, but this isn’t going to be pretty.
Hang in there, guys. Just two more weeks to go.
