The important thing to take from this is that the Texans played better on both sides of the ball. Still, there are issues that need to be addressed. However, we did not play the Patriots, in Foxboro, or the Broncos. We played the Bengals & did what we had to do to beat the Bengals.
The Bengals was supposed to have the fiercest pass rush in the league. Over the last 5 or 6 weeks they've only allowed 12 ppg. Next to Denver, this was the second hottest team in the league. We kicked their ass.
The goal, I'm sure, is to get better every week. We played better last week than we did in Minnesota, we played better this week than we did against Indy. Next week, we'll have to play better than we did today.
