It was another tough day at the front office for the Houston Texans on Sunday.
They lost 17-10 to the Tennessee Titans after looking pretty lethargic throughout. They were down just three points heading into the fourth quarter before losing by a touchdown.
The Texans did well against rookie quarterback Malik Willis, throwing just 10 passes, but they had no answer for Derrick Henry and the Titans’ rushing attack.
Texans head coach Lovie Smith wasn’t happy with that aspect of the game when he spoke to the media after the game.
“We knew who we were playing,” Smith said, via ProFootballTalk . “One of the best defenders in the game. That physical type of football, we weren’t ready to play that today.”
It won’t be any easier for Smith’s team this week. They will face the 7-0 Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday Night Football.
It will begin at 8:15 PM ET.
