The Houston Texans Continue to Lose as the Indianapolis Colts Hand Them Their Twelfth Straight Loss
The Houston Texans are in the midst of one of the worst stretches in NFL history. They are on the verge of losing 14 straight games if the last two go as Sundays did. Houston notched another one to the loss column as they could not stop Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts Sunday afternoon.
Interim head coach Wade Phillips did not fair any better then former head coach Gary Kubiak did as the team’s offensive struggles continued. They could only manage three points in their 25-3 loss. The team’s offense had one its worst outings of the season as they racked up a mediocre 239 yards of total yards. Case Keenum had one of his worst days as the starter for Houston as he was unable to find the end zone. Instead he found two different Colts defenders in Sunday’s contest. He finished the day 18/34 throw for 168 yards with those two picks.
Penalties were the other story of the game for Houston. As a team they were as sloppy as it gets, racking up 114 yards on 14 flags compared to the Colts 36 yards on four penalties. The team has only two games remaining on the season if they want to end this embarrassing 12 game losing streak. Those games consist of the Denver Broncos coming to town next week and the Texans heading to Tennessee for their season finale with the Titans.
