There's not really much that hasn't already been said about the nightmare that the 2013 Texans' season has been, so I'm going to use this space to thank everyone who has taken the time to read "Three and Out" this or any other week throughout the season. While it's usually one of my favorite posts to write, thirteen losses in a row has really taken the wind out of my sails. We're living in a world where Jonathan Grimes is going to start at running back tomorrow. It's hard to get excited about that, even if there wasn't a record of 2-13 staring me in the face. Nevertheless, I'm going to attempt to finish
strong. Without further ado, here are three things sure to happen at LP Field tomorrow when the Texans face the Titans.
1. Andre Johnson finishes with 73 receiving yards, thus falling short of becoming the first player in NFL history to record four seasons with at least 100 receptions and 1,500 yards receiving. 'Dre will, however, catch a touchdown pass.
2. J.J. Watt has 1.5 sacks, bringing his season total up to 11. Watt may not have had the statistical impact he had last year, but he's had another phenomenal season. It's just that it's been lost in the black hole that is thirteen straight losses. Let no one question his effort.
3. Case Keenum will apparently be a game-time decision. According to Wade Phillips, Keenum could be active but not start. It won't matter. Whether it's Keenum, Matt Schaub, or some combination of Keenum and Schaub, the Texans will suffer two (2) turnovers from the QB position. I'm feeling like it'll be an interception and a fumble.
PUT YOUR NAME ON IT: Fourteen losses in a row. The first overall pick of the 2014 NFL Draft. The end of the worst season in franchise history. It's all happening. Texans 17, Titans 26.
