HOUSTON (CBS HOUSTON) – Despite a second consecutive AFC South Division title the Houston Texans, there was plenty to criticise despite a playoff appearance and victory in the wild card round.
The Texans, despite leading the league in yards allowed defensively, suffered with a historically poor offense that scored just 23 offensive touchdowns.
Texans linebacker Benardrick McKinney, the team leader in tackles in 2016, made an appearance on “The Doug Gottlieb Show” on CBS Sports Radio and was asked about the Texans defense and their feelings regarding the struggles of the Houston offense.
“If the offense did something bad we didn’t look down, we didn’t mad and point any fingers,” McKinney said.
Gottlieb pressed the second-year linebacker on the issue and McKinney admitted that there may have been some minor issues, but none that caused any dissension in the locker room.
“We got a little frustrated,” McKinney said. “Guys don’t like to lose, but Romeo he tells us our job is to play defense.” We did well on defense we just play every play no matter what backed up or offense does, an interception or turnover we just did our job as a defensive unit.”
