So, last night didn't happen. There is no football on Thursday. The Texans' balls don't drop off against well coached teams in prime time.

All is well.

Right?

I don't care what the records are. It is always nice to beat Tennessee!

Pretty shaky 3-1 record but I'll take it. Someone has to win this crappy division so why not us!

Brock needs to stop forcing bad throws to Hopkins and the O-Line needs to stop sucking. Hopefully getting Brown back can help the latter, and if Brock/Hop can get on the same page going forward they could be dangerous on offense.

Lack of pass rush without Watt is concerning as well.

Our schedule is brutal the rest of the way but I don't see us losing the division. Wether or not we are good enough to do any better then last seasons dismal effort we will see.

Yeah, I'm not expecting much for the playoffs, but I do think that the Division is the Texans to lose.

What kind of a fight can the Texans expect to put up against Minnesota this week?

My bold prediction(I rarely make bold predictions so this is exciting!):

The Texans will go into Minnesota and win.

Somehow.

I think.

I base that on absolutely nothing, of course. Call it wishful thinking, blind optimism, delusions of grandeur, excess of vodka, whatever. I'm sticking to it until I am proven wrong(highly likely).

And this is why I don't often make bold predictions ;)

That 4th and 16 play was awful, what the hell is BOB thinking?

Tomorrow is actually a must-win for the Texans.

Of course, it has to be prime time...

I'm worried that with some of the injuries on defense and the already weak O-Line, along with the overall mediocre play from our QB, combined with the questionable play calling from Ass Chin and it being in prime time, that this game will be another crappy performance leading to a loss to an equally crappy Colts team.

Hopefully they can get to Luck and force some turnovers, then they might have a shot.

Really want to see the offense break out against a Colts defense that is basically terrible.

May Altuve be the godsend that shall lead this Texans team to a victory over a division rival in what is quite obviously the worst division in football this year.

This is a must-watch game for the mothers and fathers of the players on the field, and maybe O'Brien's wife.

There are so many injuries to worry about tonight, but this is a must-win for Houston. The Colt defense is terrible!

Clowney is looking good so far this season. I can't wait to see him & Watt on the field together for an entire season.

Downtown Houston is a 25 minute drive from NRG stadium???

Maybe with traffic & at rush hour...so, yeah, that could be right! :lol:

He has had some stupid penalties(last week, at least), but I agree he's legit and it really sucks Watt is hurt this year.

Sadly, the dream of them being on the field together for an extended period of time is something I have a difficult time expecting at this point.

Well, hoping for next year is kind of a Texan tradition, so why not with those two again?

It's getting difficult to remain patient with Osweiler.

But is the problem the offense overall?

Okay, it's not just coaching.
