Houston Texans Find Bright Spots in Season Opening Loss
First, let me start out by saying that I am a Houston Texans fan so, this blog post will undoubtedly be biased. I'm also an optimist so, I will always look for the positives.
In the season opener on Sunday, the Houston Texans were on the road against the New England Patriots. ON THE ROAD against the best team in the AFC the NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS. That being said, a loss by 7 points isn't that bad. The final was 27-20.
So, starting off the game, Quarterback Deshaun Watson did not look good. He did manage to go 17-34 for 176 yards with a touchdown and an interception by the end of the game. On the ground, running back Lamar Miller managed to go 98 yards on 20 carries, while Alfred Blue had 5 carries for 36 yards and a score.
Defensively the Texans showed some good play keeping the team in the game until the end, highlighted by an interception and a fumble recovery by Tyrann Mathieu. Despite the loss, I think the Texans have a lot of positives to take into game two next Sunday (September 16) on the road at division rivals the Tennessee Titans. We'll have that game for you on KLUB Classic Rock 106.9 starting at 11:30am.
We are Texans!
