The Houston Texans fought the San Francisco 49ers in a __ on Sunday.
In what was supposed to be a game where the Houston Texans had a great chance to win, they sure couldn’t get out of their own way early on. With their first six plays resulting in six rush attempts, the Texans’ offense didn’t exactly get out to a hot start.
It appears Tim Kelly regressed back into his former self and is eating the productivity of this offense like a termite to a piece of wood. Cannibalistic tendencies resulted in short slant plays and screens that went nowhere. Houston’s only score was a Davis Mills to Brandin Cooks touchdown in the first half as they went up 7-3.
Then came the worst call in the entire season, where basically Houston was not awarded possession after an interception of Mills and then the subsequent fumble by the 49ers.
The Houston Texans lost this game by means of questionable decisions. despite the officials’ bad call
Just look at the punt above. A team that’s already been eliminated with a rookie quarterback that’s down by 10 in the game decides to punt in plus territory. What is there to lose? Nothing at all.
Not trusting Mills to throw the ball down the field when he is one of the best in the league at doing so is just unfathomable. So instead, be aggressive, see what Mills can do, and take advantage of a subpar 49ers team that doesn’t have a ballhawk at all.
Maybe Houston can upset Tennessee again next week to close the year.
