The Texans lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers 28-21.
“We can’t dwell on the negativity,” Deshaun Watson said of the 3rd straight loss. “There’s a lot more football to go. We’ve got 13 more games, so who knows what can happen in 13 more games? We haven’t even played our divisional teams. There’s a lot of opportunities out there.”
It’s true, the Texans have faced this type of adversity before. In 2018 the Texans got off to the same 0-3 start to the season and then went on to win the AFC South with a 11-5 record. So is anything possible?
“We played pretty good complementary football in the first half,” O’Brien said when speaking on the positive aspects of the game. “Obviously, we’ve played three really good teams. We’re not there yet. We didn’t win any of those games but feel like we’ve definitely improved, and we need to try to play 60 minutes of that type of football.”
Quarterback Deshaun Watson threw for two touchdowns (Cobb, Fuller), one interception, and completed 19/27 for 264 yards against the Steelers.
The Texans will face the Minnesota Vikings, whose record is also 0-3, on Sunday.
