VanderBlog: Monday Night Meltdown

Posted by voiceofthetexans on December 10, 2012 – 11:49 pm

All week long we said on Texans Radio how Matt Schaub and his receivers had to be sharp on 3rd down and that the Texans must be plus one or better in turnover margin. Neither happened as the Texans were taken apart by the Patriots 42-14.

You knew it was going to be tough but early missed opportunies, strange calls and a turnover set the tone for one of the roughest nights the Texans have ever been through.

It’s strange how the Texans are 11-2, with the best record in the conference yet have two lopsided losses on national TV in which they allowed 42 points a piece.

Tom Brady was frighteningly good, throwing three touchdown passes on his first three possessions. Then the defense settled down and stopped him in his own end on four straight drives. But the offense couldn’t get it going.

The second drive of the game, Schaub threw a pick from the Patriot 21 yard line. It wasn’t until past the halfway point of the third quarter that they got their only meaningful touchdown on an 88 yard drive.

There’s no time to wallow. The Colts are knocking on the door with an eye on stealing the division. Sunday’s game is crucial.

The Texans had a chance to make a big national statement and failed. What matters now is not making a statement, but capturing a second straight divison title and working toward home field advantage in the playoffs. Maybe the biggest statement has yet to be made. First things first: Sunday.

    We did not start the year off with a goal of beating NE in Foxborough on a Monday night in December. We started the year off with a goal of winning the Super Bowl. That goal is still on track and is firmly within our grasp. Let us not forget that. We lost a battle. We did not lose the war.
