The Texans dropped their home opener to the New York Giants on Sunday and was also their third straight loss to open the season.
Another slow start continues to hinder the Texans offense which is a big reason why they are 0-3. 2 turnovers in the red zone and so many mistakes on both sides of the ball.
Once again, the late-blooming Texans ran out of time. Houston show more life on offense in the second half much like they did last week against the Tennessee Titans. DeShaun Watson was under too much pressure and struggled with his aim and consistency playing behind the poor protection in front of him. He completed 24 of 40 passes for 385 yards and 2 touchdowns. He held the ball too long and threw his third interception in the endzone in three games.
Bill O'Brien's play-calling is still a glaring issue, and with the weapons that they have on this offense being aggressive and taking shots down the field should never be a problem for this team.
The running game however, was virtually non-existent and the team struggled to piece together drives. The offense was able to only rush for 59 yards total considering the Texans came into the game leading the NFL in rushing yards.
Julien Davenport once again had 4 penalties including three false starts and a holding penalty which negated a DeAndre Hopkins touchdown. He has eight penalties in three games,and with this horrific offensive line Deshaun Watson has been sacked 10 times at hit 32 times.
The Texas need to find a way to be consistent on offense throughout the entire game in order to snap out of this horrible losing streak which dates back to last year. The team has to figure out how to stop hurting themselves, struggling in the red zone ,and being disciplined enough to not get crucial penalties in scoring situations.
The season might be over keeping in mind historically teams that go 0-3. With the youth that we have on offense
If these mistakes aren't corrected soon the question remains how long will Bill O'Brien be the head coach of this team.
