The Texans were out of town this weekend but I spent a nice afternoon with my 85-year old father watching them on television as they whipped up on the Carolina Panthers 34-21. We were both quite excited as this is the first time in the team's history that it has ever opened a season by winning its first two games. Going back to last season, that's four in a row and eight of the last 15. Believe me, if you had been a fan of the Houston Texans during its first five seasons you would realize how remarkable the previous sentence really is.
An example of the kind of defense that the Texans played most of the afternoon, forcing turnovers and adding points to the scoreboard. Carolina did recover this particular fumble but had three turnovers.
I certainly don't expect to win next week when Manning and the Colts come to town, but it should be fun.
