Coming off of last season’s 12-4 campaign, the Houston Texans were favored to be AFC South champions for the 2013 season and perhaps make a run for the Super Bowl.
The season even started off in a promising manner as they defeated the San Diego Chargers and AFC South rival, the Tennessee Titans in the first two weeks of season play.
It’s one month later, and the Texans ball club has fallen on its face; the team has lost its last four games, all in disappointing fashion.
They’ve been outscored 72-16 in their last two losses against the San Francisco 49ers and the St. Louis Rams. Texans defense has already allowed 30 or more opponent points in three games this season.
In their overtime heartbreaker against the Seattle Seahawks, the Texans defense gave up 20 late-game points to open the gateway to the Seahawks’ victory.
Seattle entered into this game with a weakened offensive line, and their reserves were no match for J.J. Watt and the aggressive Texans’ defensive line.
The Seahawks capitalized on a personal foul committed by the Texans which put them in field goal range to steal the win at Reliant Stadium.
With the quick and dismal downfall of Texans hype, questions are beginning to arise about head coach Gary Kubiak’s job.
“I’m not worried about me,” Kubiak told UltimateTexans.com. “I’d be very selfish if I was worried about (job situation).”
While football fans may be putting Kubiak on the hot seat, Texans players are taking all of the blame upon their shoulders.
