Default Surprising Road Win

I'll hold my words until the end of next week...

41-7, with a pick-6 by Brice Mccain, I never would've expected this.

Good game. 4-3. Keep it up.

*Over 500 yards total offense and two running backs with over 100 yards!

*Defense shut them down and hardly let them breathe.

*The team and coaching staff never let the momentum change when it could have after Hasselbeck's 4th down TD pass and the offense subsequent failed 4th down conversion attempt on the following drive.

*An excellent all-around victory for this Texan team.


ps: Drop Dead Bud, you piece of garbage.

It's only surprising to you people who are stuck in the past.

This team has exhibited time and time again that they are different than previous versions. Some folks are just too stubborn to realize it.

Time and Time again? Was it the wins over the winless Dolphins and Colts, or when we squeaked by the banged up Steelers after shooting ourselves in the foot all game?

I don't think anyone who thought we might lose today should be labeled crazy

Texans beat a less talented team.

We need to start to win games against better teams.

Look at you making excuses for winning, pathetic.

What is it today, the Titans were coming off their bye week so they were over-rested?

Pshh.

Everything from personnel moves to play on the field (e.g. win over Pitt, general play of defense, etc.)

Of course, you'd discount a win over "banged-up Pitt," despite its lack of relevance, who's a 4-2 team.

This is a really good team. We have lost to a handful of other really good teams (mostly on the road). You guys will come around slowly.

A road win against a divisional opponent is more like 1.5 wins because of tiebreakers, in some sense.

Glad to see a Kubiak team finally keep the boot on the throat for a full 60 minutes.

Every "big" win ,we get treated with a disappointing loss.

So I handle them with caution.

Not making excuses. I was just wondering where the "time and time again" statement was coming from.

All wins aren't pretty but this is the NFL; I'll take them all.

I don't feel like this was so much Kubiak 'keeping his foot on the pedal' as it was the team just executing his play calls. We ran the ball down their throats the whole second half. He calls runs and we get stuffed, he's playing conservative, he calls runs and we move the ball and score, he seems like he's being aggressive. We just executed today.

It must have been those games against the Saints, Raiders, and Ravens where we were leading in the third and fourth quarters and they held onto the leads and won the games.

It sure is kind of quiet around here, as opposed to after a loss there would be 50 threads created on the same subject by now, lol.

It feels good too!
