Arian Foster on offense and J.J. Watt on defense. If only the Jacksonville Jaguars had that to deal with, but the Houston Texans brought all guns blazing. Foster ran for 149 yards on 24 carries and a touchdown and Ryan Fitzpatrick was a smoking 13-19 for 135 yards and a rushing touchdown.
“We are in a must-win situation now,” star defensive end J.J. Watt said. Watt finished the game with 3 sacks and 5 QB hits. “We have strung two together and we need to continue to do it. We need to go on the road (at Indy) and try to do it again this week.”
As Watt said, his Texans are on the road next week facing the hot Indianapolis Colts this week. The Colts have reeled off three wins in a row, defeating the Cleveland Browns yesterday on a last minute drive orchestrated by Andrew Luck.

Houston suddenly in a two game tail spin
Houston we have a problem. The Texans began the season on a high note, knocking off the Redskins, Raiders and the Buffalo Bills with only one loss to the Giants in between. Then they went into Dallas and lost a 17-20 heart breaker and last night followed up with a crushing 33-28 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.
The Texans fell behind very early and had to fight back from a 24-0 first quarter blitz. The defense came alive and held the Colts to three points in the 2nd quarter while the Texans ripped off two touchdowns in under two minutes cutting the score 28-14 by halftime.
“You’re going up and down on the sideline screaming at everybody: ‘Don’t take your foot off the gas,'” Colts Head Coach Chuck Pagano said. “Next thing you know, just like that (it’s close). It’s never over in this league.”
The Texans scored 14 more points in the second half to Indie’s six and had an opportunity to win the game but Fitzpatrick had the ball stripped from him with under two minutes to play by Berjeron Werner.
“I was trying to make a play … just poor ball security,” Fitzpatrick said.
The Texans face the Pittsburgh Steelers (3-2) on October 20th and have until then to get their mindset right. Plenty of great seats and cheap tickets are still available so be sure to get yours today!
