Texans score first, but could have had more

AP

Five weeks ago, the Texans didn’t score a point against the Patriots until New England had put 28 on the board.  This time, Houston struck first.

A 94-yard kickoff return from Danieal Manning put the Texans at the Pats’ 12 yard line.  Four plays later, Houston broke the tie, 3-0.

It should have been more.  Tight end/fullback James Casey dropped what would have been a walk-in touchdown pass on second down.  On third and seven, quarterback Matt Schaub overthrew Andre Johnson in the back of the end zone.

Still, the Texans lead.  And that’s something most thought would never be said today.

  1. Manning ran out of gas. A shame for the Seahawks to loose after that comeback. Wilsons got “IT”!

  2. Giving Schaub and Kubiak exensions last summer were criticial mistakes. Both have maxed out their stay in Houston. It can only go down hill. There is no upside in either.

  3. In the end their own defenses cost Manning and Wilson playoff victories and spots in conference championship games next week. Amazing seasons by both QB’s.

  4. I think Wilson will be great long term. Seattle should have won…Marshawn should have tried to stay in bounds and not gain as many yards…they had timeouts and momentum on their side. Seattle gets a great receiving threat and a scary pass rush next year, then yeah, watch out. It is safe to say they will be a legit threat for a few years to come. That division will be tough with San Fran and St. Louis ascending.
