Texans pull closer, onside kick fails

Divisional Playoffs - Houston Texans v New England Patriots Getty Images

Well, the Texans showed a little fight.  But, so far, not enough.

A pair of touchdowns and a two-point conversion cut New England’s lead from 25 to 10.  But a Texans onside kick with more than five minutes left was recovered by the Patriots.

New England leads, 38-28.

The Texans scored via a touchdown pass from Matt Schaub to DeVier Posey that initially was ruled incomplete, and a one-yard touchdown throw from Schaub to Arian FosterAndre Johnson caught the two-point try.  The Pats punted in between.

The Patriots are now in kill-the-clock mode, thanks to Rob Ninkovich’s ability to secure the onside kick.  A week from now, they’ll be trying to beat the Ravens for the second straight year in the AFC title game.

    Really close now. It’s barely a double digit lead.

    Onside kick with 5 minutes left?! Kubiak embarrasses himself again. These Texans are soft in body and mind.

    The way both special teams units played this weekend the Pats and Ravens offenses could barely be on the field next weekend, just continuous return touchdowns.

    As a lion’s fan, I love Lloyd’s mocking “get up and run after being down”.

    I think it is time for Houston to find themselves a new QB if the want to seriously contend for a title.

    Every team has at least one player who is vitally important, yet relatively unknown outside their own fanbase. That would be Ninkovich to the Pats.
