Default Official Texans @ Cardinals Game Thread, 10/24/2021

The 1-5 Texans head to Arizona this Sunday to play the 6-0 Cardinals in a afternoon game on CBS. The Cardinals are the last remaining undefeated team in the NFL and the game Sunday probably has an infinitesimal chance to change that. The Texans are coming off a 31-3 road loss in Indy and the Cards are coming off a 37-14 road win in Cleveland.

Cards QB Kyler Murray has 1741 yds passing (8th) and thrown for 14 TDs with just 4 INTs. His 116.2 rating puts him in the top 5. Receivers he likes are DeAndre Hopkins (367 yds), Christian Kirk (358 yds), AJ Green (340 yds) and Rondale Moore (286 yds). Top rusher for the Cards is Chase Edmonds (316 yds) with James Connor (272 yards) a close second.

I'm not sure the Texans could beat the Cardinal's B-team. The Cardinals should in fact try to limit the playing time of their starters once things most likely get out of hand. Don't think the Texans make much of a game of it here:

Cardinals 35, Texans 10

Prater adds a 31 yard FG for the Cards.

Cardinals 17, Texans 5

5 seconds left in the half.

------------------------------------------------

There was 2:45 left in the half. The Texans had the ball and did the fastest 3 and out in history. They punted. Cardinals march down the field and still get 3 points. Two possessions and two changes of field position in less than 2:45. Amazing.

I love the articles talking about how the Texans aren't just losing, they're getting crushed.

The team is clearly trying to lose. That is either wrong or it isn't. Trying to lose by 7 isn't better or worse than trying to lose by 30. Tanking is either bad or it's not. Maybe it's more embarrassing to get crushed, but if this franchise cared about embarrassing then we'd be in a different discussion. We constructed a roster to lose and hired a nice guy to oversee the losing. David Culley took the job because he's in his 60s and has never even been a coordinator, but there has been no pretending on any front that we wanted to play competitive football.
