Post-Game Recap/Final Score: Texans 14, Colts 20

The Texans come up short in a dreary affair against the Colts.

NFL: Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans Shanna Lockwood-USA TODAY Sports

This was a really bad football game. Texans QB Tom Savage looked unsure as to what his purpose was in life and the offense mirrored him. It wandered around aimlessly, stumbling from down to down, just looking for something to remind it of what it once was. There was a brief respite late in the fourth quarter when Savage connected with DeAndre Hopkins for a 34 yard touchdown to bring the Texans back to within a score. Unfortunately, that score wouldn’t repeat itself, despite the Texans driving down to the Colts’ seven yard line before allowing Savage to get sacked to end the game.

The Texans didn’t struggle as much on defense, but they made two big errors in coverage that resulted in two big T.Y. Hilton touchdowns. That was all the Colts needed to get beyond the reach of the Texans’ offense.

Games like this make you ask difficult questions. Questions like how was Tom Savage ever slated to be the starter at the beginning of the season? How did we live through football this bad last season? How will we survive the rest of the season without being reduced to imbecility?

This is your post-game thread to react accordingly to today’s action. I’m going to go find a bottle of whiskey.
