Texans get blown out by Jaguars in week 17

A week after ending a nine-game run, the Houston Texans had one of their worst performances of the season. Houston looked to be making progress in recent weeks, losing close games to Dallas and Kansas City before beating the Titans 19-14 last weekend. On Sunday (Jan.1), Houston's nine-game winning streak in the series was snapped by the Jaguars. Every time the team loses, the post-game interviews sound the same.

“Our play, this was not good enough in any phase,” coach Lovie Smith said. “And all that, of course, starts with me as the head football coach. We have to do a better job. We have one more chance to get this bad taste out of our mouths.”

I swear the evaluation looks the same. Mills throws a good pass, then throws an interception, fumbles or under performs. The same layout and playbook scheme. I mean I get it, the team is rebuilding (yet again), but when does it end.

For Example, Davis Mills fumbled the ball and it was returned for a touchdown, and the Texans lost 21-0 at halftime after giving up a 62-yard touchdown to Travis Etienne.

Smith was asked about the missed tackles that led to Etienne’s big run.

“I would say mental mistakes … we’ve got to eliminate that,” Smith said. “You talk about run defense, that’s what run defense is about. Great running backs get to the second level. You’ve got to be able to get them down from there.”

These post game interviews and lackluster gameplay has become the norm. Let's hope the 2023 season is better.
