Late TDs put Texans on wrong side of history

Posted by Nick Scurfield on November 22, 2010 – 1:54 pm

If the Texans’ last two losses seemed especially painful – historically painful, even – it’s because they were.

According to Elias Sports Bureau (via Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com), the Texans are the first team in NFL history to lose back-to-back games on a touchdown pass in the final 10 seconds.

First was the 50-yard Hail Mary pass as time expired at Jacksonville. Then came the six-yard touchdown from Mark Sanchez to Santonio Holmes on Sunday at New Meadowlands Stadium.

The latter play left the Texans with a stunning 30-27 loss, negating a 20-point fourth quarter and dropping their record to 4-6. They’ll look to end a four-game losing streak six days from now when the 5-5 Tennessee Titans pay a visit to Reliant Stadium.

    I second that! Enough is enough! How much worse are you going to allow things to get? I can’t believe the coaching staff did this to our team… Hit the road Kubiak and for Pete’s take Frank Bush with you!
