The Texans are reeling from the 42-14 beatdown they received at the hands of the Patriots on Monday night, but it’s nothing they haven’t overcome before.
After all, Houston lost big to the Packers the last time they appeared on the national stage, falling 42-24 on Sunday Night Football in Week 6. Still, the Texans reeled off a big winning streak after that game, and defensive coordinator Wade Phillips is confident the team will bounce back again.
Today 11 wins feels like 2 and 2 loses feels like 11-Felt the same after G B but team responded with 6 in a row-We will be back!—

The Texans might still be in line for a first-round bye in the playoffs thanks to their 11-2 record, but as Phillips says, those two losses are certainly looming large. Then again, if Houston does indeed win its next six in a row like the Texans did last time, that would make them Super Bowl champs.
