The 2-10 Houston Texans hit the road tonight for a prime time matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Quarterback Case Keenum says despite Sunday’s loss to the New England Patriots there were some things to build on.
“We were rolling pretty well. We were running the ball well,” Keenum said.
It’s a quick turnaround for the Texans, who just played on Sunday. But Keenum doesn’t mind. And despite the team’s record ten game losing streak he isn’t looking back, either.
“Good quarterbacks have amnesia. You forget about what’s happened, but you learn from it,” he said.
You might think the lost season has led to the team and its coaches concentrating less on the task at hand and more about what the future holds in the off-season. But coach Gary Kubiak says that isn’t the case.
“It doesn’t matter if you’re 10-2 or 2-10. You’re up there working the same hours. You’re practicing. You’re battling. You’re doing the same things,” Kubiak explained.
The Jaguars came to Reliant Stadium a couple of weeks ago and scored a 13-6 win over Kubiak’s club. Kubiak says Jacksonville has played well over the last month, especially when they came to Houston.
“They got after us pretty good. We struggled to move the ball. We struggled in protection schemes and other areas,” Kubiak stated.
Kickoff tonight is scheduled for 7:25.
