Sunday will be a day of rest for Houston Texans and this group of fans deserve a break. The Texans lost on Thursday to the Jacksonville Jaguars, for their 11th consecutive loss.

Since then the team has fired their head coach, their special teams coach and are in the driver’s seat for the top overall draft choice with three games remaining in the schedule with an NFL-worst 2-11 overall record.

Saturday was pretty quiet for the Texans, but either way, the week has maybe been the busiest of the year. For Sunday, it will be just a good day to sit, rest and regroup for the upcoming week, because the Texans have a tough game next week against the Indianapolis Colts.

As for the latest on the Texans, the USA Today wrote about the hunt for a new head coach with Jim Corbett writing an article titled, “‘Revitalizing’ coach is what Houston Texans owner seeks,” saying:

"“McNair concluded the Texans would be best served to jump ahead of the competition in the hunt for a revitalizing leader.”"

On CSNHOUSTON.com in a post with the headline, “Kubiak’s son: ‘Tough times don’t last, but tough people do,'” the tweet by Klein Kubiak said:

"“That’s something my dad’s taught me since I was a young kid – tough times don’t last, but tough people do. And he’s the toughest guy I know. And I know he’ll come out on top of this, and I’m just glad to put a smile on his face today.”"

At the Houston Chronicle’s Ultimate Texans blog, it said in an article titled, “J.J. Watt bids farewell to Kubiak,” it quoted Watt tweeting:

"“Coach Kub is a great man & always handles himself with class. Grateful for him giving me an opportunity 3 years ago. Wishing him the best.”"
