The Houston Texans are still struggling to move the football on offense and are heading into the half trailing 13-3 against the Indianapolis Colts
It’s been a rough ride so far for Houston Texans fans. This offseason it looked like they had their face-of-the-franchise quarterback in Brock Osweiler.
They gave the former Denver Broncos quarterback a huge contract and after a promising preseason things looked great.
Then the regular season hit and Osweiler looked average at best. The Texans said they would work with him and he would get better. Instead he’s gotten worse and the struggles are playing out on prime time.
The Houston Texans are trailing 13-3 at the half at home against divisional rival Indianapolis. Osweiler is a sad 7-of-17 passing for 64 yards.
He is forcing the ball to DeAndre Hopkins and looks hesitant to pull the trigger to other players.
The rest of the team is playing well. The defense has forced one turnover as corner Robert Nelson got a red zone interception, his first of his career.
Running back Lamar Miller has played well also. He has 66 yards on 12 carries so far. Houston has their work cut out for them if they hope to move forward in the second half and stay in first place in the AFC South.
As it stands now Houston is 3-2 and Indianapolis is 2-3. This division is bad an all the Texans need to do to wrap it up is get these wins against divisional foes.
Fans do need to remember that at one point last season Houston was 2-5 and they were able to finish the season 7-2 and wrap up the AFC South.
Hopefully they can get things turned around in the second half and no one has to wait until close to midseason for some adjustment to be made.
Indianapolis will get the ball to start the second half of the Sunday Night Football game.
