The Houston Texans are trailing the Kansas City Chiefs 13-0 at the half, thanks in large part to four turnovers from Brian Hoyer
The Houston Texans were down 27-0 at the half in Week 1 against the Kansas City Chiefs thanks in large part to a turnover filled two quarters from quarterback Brian Hoyer. They wound up losing the game 27-20, en route to a horrific 2-5 start to the season.
They turned things around and finished 9-7, and in the playoffs where they faced, of course, the Kansas City Chiefs.
For the team, and especially Hoyer who was benched in the game, this was a shot at redemption. Yet, at the half the Texans are looking as disorganized and outmatched as they did when the two teams met in September.
The Texans are trailing 13-0 at the half, mostly due to the terrible play of Hoyer, who has three interceptions and a lost fumble. The interceptions have been bad as he has forced throws and failed to see defenders, but the fumble may have been worse. Hoyer simply lost his grip as he tried to throw and the ball found its way to Chiefs defensive tackle, Dontari Poe.
The Texans have had some bright spots as running back Alfred Blue has 72 yards on 11 rushes and Deandre Hopkins has four catches for 48 yards.
The fans sent the Texans to the half with a loud chorus of boos, it will be interesting to see if history continues to repeat itself and Hoyer finds his way to the bench.
