The losing streak has reached one dozen consecutive losses for the Houston Texans in a season that, unfortunately, won’t be forgotten anytime soon. Houston added to the embarrassment Sunday with a 25-3 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.
There really isn’t much to say about this team or game today, except the Texans (I hope) finally learned that Case Keenum, more than likely isn’t the answer for the future of the quarterback position. (Unless you want to blame the pass protection that failed to show up again.)
Keenum finished 18-of-34 for 168 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions. Ben Tate led the rushing attack of the Texans with 16 carries for 72 yards. Ryan Griffin had six receptions for 62 yards as the starting tight end, replacing Garrett Graham who was inactive today.
The entire team looked inactive by watching their overall play.
I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m tired of this team, this season, and for now on it is all about the future as 2013 is all but over.
As for Tate, he also had two fumbles and Keenum had one fumble to go with the rest of his lackluster day.
The three points by the Texans came off a 49-yard field goal by Randy Bullock in his lone attempt.
Hey Bullock was perfect!
Houston showed they still have no discipline with 14 total penalties for a loss of 114 yards, along with the three fumbles. Really looks like bringing officials to practice worked out well this week, huh?
Andrew Luck of the Colts finished 19-of-32 for 180 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. The Texans even let Trent Richardson rush for 64 yards on 19 carries.
T.Y. Hilton had his way with Houston again, this time eight receptions for 78 yards, but no touchdowns. (He had enough the first meeting.)
One bright spot … the Texans had three more points than the New York Giants.
