Texans put a beating on the Bucs

If there were any questions that the Houston Texans are the overwhelming favorites in the AFC South, those questions were put to rest today in Tampa Bay.

And if there were any hopes that the Buccaneers could win the NFC South, those hopes were probably put to rest, too.

The Texans dominated from start to finish in Tampa, easily beating a Buccaneers team which entered the season with high hopes, but which has looked in recent weeks like the playoffs are a pipe dream. The final score was 37-9, and the Texans could have put up more points than that if they had wanted to. The Bucs are now on a three-game losing streak.

And the Texans are now on a four-game winning streak, and all four wins have come by double-digit margins. The Texans aren’t just winning, they’ve whipped every team they’ve played for a month.

Houston’s running game has been excellent lately, with Arian Foster, Ben Tate and Derrick Ward all making big plays on the ground. Once the Texans get receiver Andre Johnson back, they’re going to have one of the most balanced attacks in football. The Texans are going places.

And the Bucs are going nowhere.

    Next time my Buc’s go to London, could someone make sure it’s a one-way ticket?

    Super Bowl bound Texans!!!

    Keep the pedal to the floor and get a top seed and bye for the playoffs.

    You mean Haynesworth didn’t ignite the D? I am shocked… shocked!

    raheem(who sucks so bad makes you want to scream) morris should be fired this week along with the whole staff, you need a coach the fans will buy into say what you want about gruden at least he sold out and was competive this was ugly

    As a Bucs fan I’m begging the Glazers to fire Morris ASAP (5 minutes after theson ends) and dump Greg Olson before the day is out to make an example and show this will not be accepted.

    I see Albert Haynesworth made a stunning impact!

    The Bucs are undisciplined and unprepared week after week. They can’t tackle and can’t complete a pass play beyond the line of scrimmage. Painful to watch.

    Just wondering how Haynesworthless performed today? i shouldnt think to hard probably was useless and had little or no impact.

    Nice to see the Texans finally getting it together this year.

    The Bucs were a 10-6 team with the youngest roster in the league last year, and are currently 1 game below 500, with still the youngest (or one of the youngest) teams in the league. Why don”t all of you supposed “bucs fans” get a grip and stop making ridiculous statements about Morris. Last year we were making a case for him for coach of the year.

    Cheapest team in NFL 7yrs in a row and youngest (but you morons blame the coach) no depth. no experience.

    The Cheap Glazer Family spends endless money on MANCHEsTER UNITED soccer team

    It would appear the talent they thought they have, they don’t. What a collapse!

    Franchise QB. LOL.
    3 more int. If he’s not leading the league in INT, he has to be close.

    Hynesworth, according to the stats, didn’t do too bad. And he blocked an extra point.

    Was Haynesworth useless for a satisfactory amount of snaps today? I’m glad he has a blocked extra point in a 37-9 game to add to his hall of fame resume.

    the team is playing with no heart they quit today, you need a great X’S and O’s coach, if they dont do something in the off season they wont sell out another game, i say why wait glazers step up and show you wont stand for this

  15. dafranchise03 says: Nov 13, 2011 5:58 PM

    People need to realize that the team was never that good to begin with. Look at who they beat last year. Only one win against a team with a winning record. Now look at who they played this year. Lost every game against teams with a winning record. SHOCKER? no

  16. liquidalfa says: Nov 13, 2011 6:13 PM

    Not a big fan of the guy but what a job by Wade Phillips.

    Now look at who they played this year. Lost every game against teams with a winning record. SHOCKER? no

    When did the league remove the wins over the 7-3 Saints & 5-4 Falcons from the Bucs record?
    That seems a little unfair.

  18. dafranchise03 says: Nov 13, 2011 6:29 PM

    your right tbtrojan. I was just going off what i thought i remembered. So they have improved a little based of the fact they can beat some teams with winning records. It doesnt change the fact that their schedule is harder this year and have not improved enough to overcome it.

    Texans had a great game but the Bucs really looked they gave up at the end.

    Tackling was really poor but I can remember when the Texans tackled that bad……

  20. richm2256 says: Nov 13, 2011 7:20 PM

    I heard Haynesworth enjoyed the game from his boat.

  21. vambomarble says: Nov 14, 2011 11:49 AM

    I am so glad the Texans got past this trap game…

    That was a dominating performance against the Bucs. Check out my article on the Texans by clicking my username at the top of this post.
