Texans melt down as Rams dominate in Houston

The ugliest performance of this Sunday in the NFL belonged to the Houston Texans, who were absolutely dreadful in all three phases of the game, getting destroyed by the Rams.

The flip side is that St. Louis, a team that hasn’t gotten much credit this season, turned in an impressive performance, winning 38-13 and improving to 3-3 on the season.

St. Louis quarterback Sam Bradford was calmly efficient, completing 12 of 16 passes for 117 yards, with three touchdowns and no interceptions. Also impressive for St. Louis was defensive tackle Michael Brockers, who had two sacks, two quarterback hits and three tackles for loss.

But the story of this game will be that the Texans, who entered the season looking like a playoff team, have totally collapsed. Matt Schaub suffered an ankle injury and was replaced by T.J. Yates to the delight of the fans in Houston, but this team’s problems go deeper than the starting quarterback. The Texans are a mess.

    No heart. This team had Superbowl expectations. Now it looks like they may not make the playoffs.

    The south is ours again. You texans fans knew it wouldn’t last long

    Yea, about that time to make a clean break: coach, QB, and offensive system. Andre Johnson is past his prime as well.

    Manziel will be a Texan.

    Is this the end for Gary kubiak?

    What isn’t said in the article here is that fans were throwing ice at Schaub before he got hurt, and then actually cheered when he was down on the field holding his ankle. Absolutely disgusting behavior.

    Oh no! We suck again!

    you forgot to mention that TJ Yates came in and kept the streak alive…he threw a pick 6 on his fifth attempt of the day, 98 yard td for the rams…

    if texans owner bob mcnair doesnt fire Kubiak tonight, then he is only in this thing to cash checks..

    texans will be favored by 1 over jacksonville right now

    Coach, qb, and special teams coach are all in bottom 20% of league. Not too much you can do with that.

    That was fun.

    Rams haven’t had a game like this since Faulk, Bruce, Holt, Pace were all still here.

    Yep. Tanking for the greatest QB prospect since Peyton Manning will do that. I mean, you guys ran Curtis Painter out there on a weekly basis with a straight face.

    Kubiak has always been an overrated coach. His teams have consistently underachieved every year, even when they were making the playoffs.

    (de-bo style) hey texans give us back our afc south championship belt (snatches it) go sit in the corner!!!

    I said early this week that this crap team from houston was a fraud. Ha Ha.

    Paper Texans; they are who we thought they were. And we didn’t let them off the hook!

  18. mrcincinnati says: Oct 13, 2013 4:41 PM

    maybe the Bengals will win a playoff game now..keep it up Texans.. WHO DEY

  19. texanfan62 says: Oct 13, 2013 4:41 PM

    Kubiak and Dick Smith, NEED TO GO! Period!

    awwww cheer up buddy, lol

    This Texans team is almost an exact mirror image of the late 90’s/early 2000’s Buccaneers.

    A great defense, a great running game, and inept quarterbacking/coaching.

    Kubiak is similar to Tony Dungy, he has no fire, he’s too passive! The Texans need to fire him and hire someone like Gruden or Cowher, that can light a fire under their butts!

    Jacksonville will get win vs the texans. Mark it down
