Sunday night was scary following the collapse of Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak at halftime, but the game still had to be played and the Texans lost for a sixth straight time, by a 27-24 score to the Indianapolis Colts.

On the Texans’ official site, Deepi Sidhu wrote about Kibiak’s situation:

"“(Wade) Phillips, who took over in Kubiak’s absence, saw Kubiak go down and said the atmosphere in the locker room was one of uncertainty.”"

She also quoted running back Ben Tate, saying:

"“You don’t think anything like that would happen to him. He’s a guy who is mostly in good shape, he’s in good health.”"

Drew Daugherty, also of the official Texans site, wrote about Case Keenum in an article titled “Case Keenum shines in Colts loss,” writing:

"“He and the team came up short, falling 27-24, but he was praised in the aftermath by coaches and teammates alike.”"

Tania Ganguli of ESPN wrote an “Upon Further Review” article:

"“Texans kicker Randy Bullock has made 61.9 percent of his field goals this season. That ranks 32nd in the NFL and is the second-worst percentage of any kicker who has made at least one field goal this season.”"

John McClain of the Houston Chronicle graded the Texans in the loss to the Colts, giving them a C for the game. He wrote about the overall grade:

"“The Texans lost coach Gary Kubiak and running back Arian Foster, and they blew the game for their sixth consecutive defeat.”"
