The Texans lost another heartbreaker on Sunday, dropping a 35-27 decision to the undefeated Indianapolis Colts at Reliant Stadium.
Another close loss: The loss was the Texans’ fifth of the season by eight points or less. They’ve now lost two games at the one-yard line, two games on missed last-second field goals and a game in which they led by 17 points in the second quarter.
In the last three weeks, they have lost to the Colts, Titans and Colts by a combined 14 points. Three weeks ago at Indianapolis, the Texans led 17-13 in the fourth quarter but fell 20-17. This time around, they didn’t trail until Dallas Clark scored a go-ahead touchdown with 8:24 left in the game.
“I’m very confident in the team,” said wide receiver Andre Johnson, who had five catches for 67 yards. “It’s just about us getting over this hump. It’s like we are at this hill and we keep getting to the top and we just keep rolling back down. Somehow, we’ve just got to find a way to get over it…
“If you look at some of the games we lost this year it’s crazy. It’s a very tough feeling, but I think in the long run, it’s going to make us better.”
Myself personally I applaud Johnson for being a total team player. Being an ex athlete i’ve seen players give up when times are tough. Proffessional athletes should look at his character as a great example.
