Postgame Review: Texans 34 - Lions 31

Let us give thanks for another Texans win. Arian's already doing it. - Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1 10-1

I have no idea how the Texans won this game. I really don't. I count at least three times in overtime where I was certain that the Texans were up a certain creek without a certain instrument.

And regardless of whether you think the Lions got hosed by that Forsett touchdown (spoiler: the Lions screwed themselves), this was a really, REALLY hard fought win by the Texans, the kind of win that great teams make and are capable of making.

That being said, I think we can all agree that if the game is on the line and Shayne Graham comes out onto the field, cringing is not only understandable, it's just common sense. Also cringeworthy was Kubiak inexplicably reverting to his old horrible game management habits, to say nothing of Alan Ball covering Calvin Johnson.

They fought hard, REALLY hard especially considering they've played almost two and a half games of football in four days. I'm proud of these guys; incredibly proud of them.

That being said, the injuries and the fact that we had to claw back in another game is, to say the least, troubling. If the Texans keep playing like this, I fear Texans will not last long in the playoffs. They can do that against the Jacksonvilles and Detroits of the league. But falling behind early against Baltimore or New England is only begging for trouble.

But enough criticism, this is a happy day, a day full of food, of friends, and a Texans win. Let us share our thanks for these things, Andre Johnson, J.J. Watt, and all sorts of other things.

Add your thoughts to the comments section below, let us Texans fans rejoice now that we've matched the number of wins we had from last year with five games left in the season.

TEXANS WIN!!!!!
