There was much to hate about the Texans' 21-14 loss to the lowly Jets (who entered the game ranked, statistically, last in the NFL in defense), but what encapsulated the day, for me, was the absolutely pathetic attempt at a potential game-tying drive late in the fourth quarter.
I traveled to Lufkin on Friday to see the remarkable turnaround season for the Stings come to an end, and then I watched from my couch as the Houston Texans snapped an eight-game losing streak with an ugly 22-13 win over a red-hot Tennessee Titans team on the road.
My football viewing this week included a couple of quality high school playoff games and getting to enjoy the NFL RedZone network, since the Houston Texans were on their bye week. Here’s some thoughts after this weekend.
In this week’s football notebook, we take a look at just how well the Friendswood Mustangs executed their game plan in a 28-27 district title clinching victory Friday over the Port Arthur Memorial Titans, and declare the Houston Texans’ 17-9 loss Sunday to the Miami Dolphins their ugliest loss of the season — which is saying a lot.
The Clear Springs Chargers' quick-strike offense out-classed Brazoswood in a 52-21 win, the Friendswood Mustangs quickly buried Goose Creek Memorial on their way to a 62-0 rout, and the Houston Texans fell flat on the road against the NFL-leading Arizona Cardinals, who won 31-5.
My football viewing this week included a tough loss for Texas City that coaches hope serves as a wakeup call for a promising team with much to still play for, as well as the Houston Texans taking a 31-3 road division loss against the Indianapolis Colts.
My football viewing this past week included the Houston Texans’ 25-22 loss Sunday at NRG Stadium against the New England Patriots, and Clear Falls’ first-ever victory over the Clear Springs Chargers, which came by way of a 48-35 score Friday night at Challenger Columbia Stadium.
The ALDS could go either way, but I like the Astros’ chances to make it to the ALCS and make some history.
Here’s some extra notes on the Dickinson Gators’ 28-7 win over the Clear Falls Knights and some thoughts on the Houston Texans’ 24-9 loss to the Carolina Panthers.
