The Texans were facing 0-4 and a nine game losing streak. Then the heavens parted and the omnipresent football man in the sky shined light down on Houston’s football game. He put the thought in Frank Reich’s mind to go for it at their own 43 yard line with less than a minute to go in overtime. The ball skipped over to Chester Rogers with Johnathan Joseph in coverage. Houston ball. DeAndre Hopkins turned a simple slant into 24 yards, which set up a 37 yard Ka’imi Fairbairn attempt. A Smirnoff in the bean pot. A kick attempt that didn’t exist. A made second attempt. The Texans win. They are now 1-3, tied with the Colts for last place in the division.
Despite Bill O’Brien reverting back to his old offensive play calling and going conservative with a lead, bungling the clock at the end of the fourth quarter, and calling another useless screen pass in an integral situation, the Texans finally won a one-possession game this year. Fortune is a funny thing.
Next week the Texans play the Cowboys on Sunday Night Football in an attempt to start a winning streak.
The floor is yours.
