  • Does the loss worry you?


  • No Keke, big problems
  • Carter out, Webb in?
  • Thought it was more about what the Colts did than what the Texans didn’t do

Coaching Breakdown

  • BoB timeout hurt at the end of the first half?
  • Clowney has 9 pre-snap penalties this season

Offensive Breakdown

  • DT87 finding his groove
  • Young TEs coming into their own

Additional Thoughts

Looking Forward Texans at Jets

Around the League

  • What is wrong with Watson going deep, how is his timing off with Hopkins?

  • Through 14 weeks, which draft spot to do you see as the highest priority?
