HOUSTON (SPORTSRADIO 610) – A day after the Texans scored 53 points with 592 yards in total offense, Texans’ head coach Bill O’Brien isn’t ready to call his offense a juggernaut.

“Before we start saying this is the greatest show on turf, remember now, we had five balls on the ground, like I was saying after the game, we’re trying to get better.  We had two more false start penalties in the red area.  I know we did a really good job on offense, right, but we’ve got a lot to work on here.  Got to turn the page here and get going this afternoon,” O’Brien said during his Monday press conference. 

The Texans were fortunate to lose only one of the five fumbles O’Brien mentioned, and the two false starts in the red zone by Max Scharping still ended in a Texans’ touchdown.  That said, the penalties for the Texans is a high number, and those nine flags cost the Texans 89 yards.

Regardless, the Texans showed that their offense can play at an extremely high level and their quarterback, Deshaun Watson, can turn in a perfect performance.  Getting the offense clicking on all cylinders comes at a good time with a trip to Kansas City and a date with Pat Mahomes looming this weekend.
