At the time this happened, the Texans had only had one possession (which did include a first down). The Texans second possession (immediately after the resulting TD) was a 59 yard drive (granted, ending in a Schaub int). The idea that keeping 7 points off the board on New England's first possession couldn't have been beneficial to the Texans is absurd. The idea it would have made it worse is beyond absurd. Hopefully there's sarcasm in your post that I'm simply not seeing.
