They were a handful of plays from going 10-6
They were also a handful of plays from losing the five games that they won. Even though it makes for exciting games, I'd like to see one or two games this year not fall into the pattern of "it will probably come down to the last series" (in the Texans favor of course). It will be interesting to see if that coaching mantra is still there this season, because this team shouldn't have to always "keep it close into the 4th" to win games this year -- Week 1 being the best example. Their goal for Week 1 should be to kick *** and take names, not keep it close into the 4th. I realize with the parity in the league these days it's harder to do, but there will be opportunities during the year to dominate opponents, not just hang with them. "Killer instinct" should be a new sign on the locker room wall this year. It's time.
