After finally getting their first win this weekend Lamar Miller Color Rush Jersey , the Houston Texans know that they still have plenty of work to do if they hope to get on a roll and turn their season around the Colts 37-34 in overtime to end a nine-game losing streak going back to last season.Coming up next is a showdown with in-state rival Dallas, a team that enters the game at 2-2 after a victory over Detroit this weekend.“There’s a lot of things that we need to correct, but when you come out of that game with a win, there’s a lot of things that you can look at that you can build on,” coach Bill O’Brien said.The Texans got great performances from defensive ends J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney on Sunday. Watt had two sacks, a tackle for a loss and forced two fumbles. Clowney recovered a fumble in the end zone for a touchdown, had two sacks, four quarterback hits and four tackles for losses.O’Brien said Sunday was Clowney’s best game this season.“He had a very disruptive game … it was fun to see him back out there playing that way,” O’Brien said. “He did a great job.”Despite the strong play of Watt and Clowney, O’Brien is looking for improvement on defense this week, especially in the secondary after Andrew Luck threw for 464 yards and four touchdowns on Sunday.The Texans are also searching for ways to better protect Deshaun Watson after the quarterback was sacked seven times by the Colts. The second-year player has been sacked 17 times this season, which is the second most in the NFL.Though O’Brien knows that his team must cut down the number of times Watson is getting hit, he was quick to point out that the problem isn’t just with the line.“The sacks are definitely not all the offensive line Nick Martin Color Rush Jersey ,” he said. “I would say, to be honest with you, the offensive line is probably only responsible for two of those sacks. I think the other five came from missing some assignments here and there at other positions.”Houston’s offense took a hit on Sunday when receiver Will Fuller left the game early in the second half with a hamstring injury. Fuller, who has 263 yards receiving and three touchdowns, missed the season opener with an injury to the same hamstring.O’Brien didn’t have an update on his condition on Monday, saying he’d know more later in the week. With Fuller out, the Texans got a strong game from rookie Keke Coutee, who made his debut on Sunday after missing the first three games with an injury. Coutee finished with 11 receptions for 109 yards.“He’s a very, very instinctive guy,” O’Brien said. “He’s got really good quickness, but he’s also got really good speed and he’s got strong hands. So, he really did a nice job for us in some key moments that we really needed a play because maybe they were doubling (DeAndre) Hop (Hopkins) or Will wasn’t in there.”If Fuller can’t go on Sunday, the Texans could lean on Coutee even more this week. O’Brien expects him to take another step forward this week after getting his first game under his belt.“When he sees some of the things that he missed Alfred Blue Color Rush Jersey , he’s going to really even be better the next time out … that’s what’s key about the rookies is when you have a good game like that, you’ve got to really try to build on it,” O’Brien said. On a day Houston quarterback Deshaun Watson wasn’t at his best, the defense helped the Texans pull out another win.Johnathan Joseph‘s 28-yard interception return for a touchdown with 1:23 remaining lifted the Texans to their third straight victory, a 20-13 win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.The Texans trailed by three when Phillip Gaines was called pass interference on Will Fuller in the end zone with 2 minutes remaining, moving the Texans 41 yards to the 1-yard line.But the Texans (3-3) lost 7 yards on three plays, capped by an incomplete pass intended for Ryan Griffin that Matt Milano knocked down to force Houston to kick.A 27-yard field goal by Ka’imi Fairbairn tied it with 1:34 remaining.Two plays later Joseph stepped in front of a pass from backup Nathan Peterman intended for Kelvin Benjamin and dashed untouched into the end zone to put the Texans on top and help them avoid their third straight overtime game.“I kind of thought for a second to just get there and hold the ball so we can the run clock out,” Joseph said. “But then I was like: ‘A chance like that (doesn’t) come by so often. I’ve got to score this.'”The Bills had a chance to tie after that, but Kareem Jackson intercepted Peterman with 35 seconds left to secure the victory.Joseph’s late-game heroics helped Houston to its third straight win on a day Watson committed three turnovers.The Bills hurried and harassed Watson all day, sacking him seven times and hitting him 12 more. Watson, questionable this week with a chest injury, was slow to get up several times and didn’t seem to be moving as well as he normally does.Watson brushed off questions about his health, saying he didn’t “want to make any excuses Will Fuller V Color Rush Jersey ,” but his teammates acknowledged the injury and said it made them want to do more to help him.“When you’ve got a guy that sacrifices everything when he’s hurt, everybody around him better do the same thing, especially if it’s your quarterback,” defensive end Jadeveon Clowney said. “I think everybody put that on their shoulders this week and just tried to give it all up for him.”Watson was 15 of 25 for 177 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. He also lost a fumble.Peterman threw for 61 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions for the Bills (2-4) after taking over for rookie Josh Allen, who left with an elbow injury late in the third quarter. Allen threw for 84 yards and ran for 20.Bills coach Sean McDermott said after the game that they were still evaluating Allen’s injury.He saw some good things from Peterman but was disappointed with his turnovers.“At the end of the game … he was probably trying to do too much,” McDermott said. “I don’t want to paint it all bad, but we’ve got to protect the football and make sure we’re smart.”The Bills took their first lead of the game when Peterman found Zay Jones in the corner of the end zone on a 16-yard pass that made it 13-10 early in the fourth quarter.Lorenzo Alexander tipped a pass by Watson at the line and intercepted it on the first drive of the second half. The Bills had a first down at the 8-yard line before their offense stalled and they kicked a 22-yard field goal to cut the lead to 10-3.Peterman’s first pass after taking over was incomplete and his second was short of a first down, and the Bills added a 52-yard field goal to get within 10-6.Watson was sacked on Houston’s next drive and Harrison Phillips recovered his fumble at the Houston 32 near the end of the third quarter.The Texans recovered a fumble on a punt return and took advantage of the mistake a few plays later when Watson connected with DeAndre Hopkins on a 13-yard pass to make it 7-0. A 33-yard field goal pushed the lead to 10-0 in the second quarter.INJURIESBills LG Vladimir Ducasse left in the fourth quarter with a knee injury. … Allen looked to be in quite a bit of pain in the sideline as trainers worked on his elbow.WATT’S WORKHouston’s J.J. Watt had a sack to give him at least one in four straight games and leave him tied for the NFL lead with seven this season. Watt has played well in his return after playing just eight games combined in the previous two seasons because of back surgery and a broken leg.“I’m just trying to get better and better,” he said. “Everybody told me I was washed-up. Some people didn’t think I could get seven sacks on the season. I’m just trying to keep doing what I’m doing.”UP NEXTBills: Visit Indianapolis next Sunday.Texans: Visit Jacksonville next Sunday.
