Houston (CBS Houston)– Most of the Houston Texans seemed deflated Sunday as they were served their ninth loss in a row by, what was the NFL’s worst team, Jacksonville Jaguars.

Texans head coach Gary Kubiak continued the deflated demeanor as he met with the media Monday.

“I feel the same the way about the game,” Kubiak said. “As far as the big picture, that hasn’t changed. I know we’re struggling. I know it’s tough. (We’ve) got to be strong and keep going.”

Texans quarterback Case Keenum had the worst performance in his five starts throwing  for 169 yards, a pick and fell short of grabbing his first NFL win.

Kubiak wouldn’t commit to sticking with Keenum after the 13-6 loss but Monday he was quick to name his quarterback starter.

“Yes, Case will play, yeah.”

Coach Kubiak then went on to say that he didn’t hear that his starting quarterback was struggling Sunday even though Keenum shared with the media that he felt out of rhythm.

“I just had bad fundamentals and I wasn’t trusting what I was seeing and letting the ball go, it wasn’t good,” Keenum said.

“I didn’t hear about that,” Kubiak admitted. “Well, I can tell you this, when you’re a rookie, you’re probably not going to be real comfortable until you play a lot of football. That’s part of it. I just think he’s going through a growth process. I think, initially, a lot of good things going on, a lot of big plays going on. He’s getting played differently a little bit each week, so he’s seeing different defenses, different teams. How are you going to play me that day? What do I have to do as a player? He’s drifting a little bit in the pocket, which is something we’ve got to go fixed. That’s something that he has confidence to do because of the way he did in college. You can’t do that in this league because the edges get real short. That’s part of his growth process, but he’s a confident kid. Yesterday was a tough day on him, I know. It’s tough on everybody, not just Case. Just got to stay positive and keep working.”

The Texans will have to keep working as the AFC East-leading Patriots come in to Reliant Stadium Dec. 1.

Coach Kubiak also gave an ‘update’ on the team’s injured players: Kareem Jackson will still be day-to-day and Owen Daniels is, “close” to return.
