There is no letting up for the Houston Texans who are now being led (and quite successfully) by former Cowboys QB Brandon Weeden. Weeden, who could not win a quarter while serving his term with “da boys” has now led the Texans to two straight victories including running for a touchdown and throwing for two more in a 34-6 romping of the Tennessee Titans.
“We needed this one,” Weeden said. “As a team, we needed this one. It feels good personally, I’m more excited for this team.”
Now the Texans hold their fate in their hands as they face the Jacksonville Jaguars (5-10) this weekend and a victory is a must.
“We have to play to win,” Houston coach Bill O’Brien said of his approach against Jacksonville. “I think the bottom line is we need to win. I don’t think we can look at any scenario, this scenario, that scenario, I believe that we need to play to win.”
