The Houston Texans somehow found a way to beat the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday Night Football 26-23 thanks to a Nick Novak 27-yard field goal. The Texans didn’t look good most of the night. Actually they didn’t look particularly like a professional football team until midway through the third quarter.
Luckily for the Texans the Colts defense isn’t very good and Brock Osweiler, Bill O’Brien and the Texans started using Lamar Miller as often as possible. With that came some very entertaining work by the folks on twitter. Here are our favorite 16 tweets from the Texans vs. Colts game Sunday Night.
The Texans started off with 5-yards in the first quarter. Five. And that was after Miller started the game with a 12-yard run.
Even just down a two scores (not even two touchdowns, some fans were out.
It was bad. Really bad.
It does Cody! We are all excited for that day, and we didn’t have to miss it to watch the Texans (they play Monday Night in Denver), so bonus!
It was 13-3 at half, but it felt like it could have been much worse.
The Texans finally got into the end zone in the 3rd quarter, AND ON THE GROUND! It was their first rushing touchdown of the year for the Texans. Everyone was so excited you might have missed Nick Novak missing the 37-yard extra point. At 13-9 it was still a one score game, or two score if you think like Seth Payne.
The Texans offense still wasn’t fantastic. They couldn’t move the ball and they couldn’t move the ball against the Colts. This wasn’t the Saints, this was the Colts defense who has limited teams to 410-yards a game!
Somehow, the Houston Texans came back. They were terrible for a majority of the game, but the Texans defense kept the Texans in it, and then Lamar Miller made things happen with some amazing moves to get into the end zone.
But with under two minutes left, did anyone think the Texans were going to pull this game out? No, right…I mean, it’s not like Brock Osweiler has a big pass Catching Tight End over the middle…oh…
And Fantasy Players Rejoiced.
Then in overtime, that Jaelen Strong catch…I mean, THAT JAELEN STRONG CATCH!
We weren’t in there, but this seems accurate after you make the catch to set up the game winning field goal.
It was just a 37-yard field goal for Nick Novak after that and the Texans walked away 4-0 at home heading away for another extremely tough road game.
