THE BAD

Being Unable to Finish Games — This team can’t finish a game. Sometimes I wonder if they take their cue from the other team that resides in Texas when it comes to their fourth-quarter ability.

Take this past week … the Texans were unable to hold an 18-point lead they built at the half. There have been numerous times this season when they Texans just lost it at the end, including their 23-20 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in week four.

Finishing games is something this team really needs to improve on the rest of the year.

 

Health of Players — This hasn’t been a good season for the Texans when it comes to overall health. Losing linebacker Brian Cushing for the second consecutive year wasn’t good. They’ve lost tight end Owen Daniels for an extended period of time, and there has been the situation at running back where Arian Foster has played just a handful of plays the past two games with numerous injures.

The medical staff of the Texans sure has earned their money this year.
