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.
