Houston Texans Final Score/Post-Game Recap and Reaction: Texans 9, Broncos 27

I want the last three hours back.

After watching Brock Osweiler turn into a beast in the fourth quarter/overtime of last Sunday night’s game against the Colts, the question popped up about whether this was a turning point for the Brock Osweiler era in Houston.

After watching Monday night’s game against the Broncos, we now have an answer to that question:


Not just no, but a resounding no. The Texans turned in what might have been their most inept performance of the season by scoring all of three (3!) field goals against the Denver Broncos, while the Denver Broncos looked like an actual NFL team.

The worst part is the insufferable and unending “I told you so’s” that are going to stream into the internets from media outlets for the rest of this week.

Brock Osweiler, for those of you who watched the game in its entirety (and why the hell would you?), completed 22 of 41 passes and gained a whopping 131 yards through the air.

I want to like Brock Osweiler, and I really, DESPERATELY want to believe that he’s going to be the long-term answer at quarterback for our Houston Texans, but we’ve played seven games now and he has shown zero improvement thus far. In some respects, he appears to have regressed.

The offensive line, and I do mean offensive, just got worse after Derek Newton injured both of his legs from a non-contact injury. The most optimistic view of this would mean that Newton misses the rest of this season and probably the entirety of next year. What does that mean for us right now? More Chris Clark, which everybody was clamoring for, am I right?

The defense looked like Frank Bush was back to calling plays, and...and...I don’t even want to think about the rest of it.

Commiserate with us here, make your voice heard, because apparently the season is long and full of terrors.
