Default The Road Warriors

Don't look now, but the Texans have turned into Road Warriors.

They are 5-2 over their last 7 road games. Included in that was some darn tough places to play in Nov and Dec - Cleveland, Green Bay, and Buffalo. Other wins are Tennesee and Cinci, neither a gimme and in the case of Cinci a convincing win against a likely playoff contender. They also almost pulled off an amazing come back against Arizona another likely playoff team.

They laid one egg in that stretch at Oakland, but otherwise they have been outstanding on the road in recent games. I think this is the key to the fortunes of this team. They are no longer push overs on the road and have a great chance to finish with a winning record on the road. That is the mark of a very good to great team - winning on the road.

Good job Texans!

I'm reminded of a line from the movie Pulp Fiction by Mr. Winston Wolfe.

Default Re: The Road Warriors

IIRC, that was of the major factors that they were addressing this season. They were making it a point to have a better road record. I know that sounds dumb because it seems like a given, but regardless.....

Like someone said in another thread. Hostile environments and weather conditions affect O's more. To be a good road team the D has to step up and it has been.

Very nice to read, especially considering that they've been 2-6 for each season prior to now.
