Playoff win. Be happy.

This is the best game they've played in 6 weeks. The OL played better than they have recently, the defense played their best game in a long time, and the running game finally showed up like it was supposed to. Still some red zone issues to be worried about, but I'll worry about those tomorrow.

It's not like the win displeases me. I'm not unhappy they won or anything like that. I just wasn't going to breakout the fireworks and fire up the margarita machine over a home win against the Bengals. Particularly not a home win where the Texans could only muster one touchdown.... again.

Nothing's is fixed. The defense held down another fair-to-good team at home. Big deal, that's easily done. Lets see them save our asses in New England next week. That will be a real trick. Even if we get the same effort from the defense and Arian Foster shows up like he did today we still aren't going to win against the Patriots with Schaub playing the way he has for the last 5-6 games.

Schaub was lousy.

This is pretty much how I feel, too. It's good we won, but we shouldn't have been playing today. Next week we'll probably be playing the weather & the officials, too. Beating the Patriots is tough enough without other factors. Guess I just don't want to turn into that Titans fan who used to brag that his team was better than ours. What have they ever done?

Offense gets you to the playoffs. Defense win championships. If our offense is average, and our defense is dominate I will take our chances.

The Texans won't be the first team to be an underdog that is capable of pulling an upset. It happens all the time in the playoffs.

Remember Seattle and New Orleans a couple years back?

ANY. GIVEN. SUNDAY. (or Saturday...)

I dont see how anyone can pump sunshine out of this game... We beat the bengals in almost all phases of the game and we barely came out with the W. Plus we shouldnt have been playing this week anyway. Im not counting us out but we've got a long shot to beat NE.

New England is a better team.. Join the very large club! We are 12-4 and into the 2nd round of the playoffs. that's good... Unlikely, but we have a chance to go to the AFC championship game next week. Good news!

We settled for 4 FGs yes it sucks BUT i saw a better offense this week then i have seen in a while for the texans. The bengals defense is way better that the patriots defense.

AND our defense looked like it did early in the season. Everyone swarming to the ball, i saw intensity which we havent seen in a while.

Honestly ssing an improvment should be encouraging.

If nothing else, at least we're going to NE and not the Bengals. I think it's kind of cool we've beaten the Bengals two years in a row. It's not a lot, but it's something. And you can bet your ass Bengal fans know it. LOL

The Texans played very well except for two areas: Red Zone execution and penalties. Too many penalties have dogged this team for the last few weeks, too many times negating first downs on offense and giving the opponent a first down on a defensive penalty that would have otherwise led to 4th down.

Yeah i live next to a bengals fan, he and his wife and kids are from ohio. We are really good friends, and last season his 2nd favorite team was the texans until we beat them.

Now he just sent me a message saying we're not welcome at their house anymore haha (he's kidding) but its funny.
