The Houston Texans have a lot more problems than just the quarterback. The Atlanta Falcons absolutely shredded their defense and stonewalled their running game Sunday, but it was the self-inflicted errors that hurt the most.
In this case, the self-inflicted errors were quite literal. Running back Arian Foster was stripped Sunday by his own teammate—offensive lineman Derek Newton.
Any team without a capable quarterback needs to protect the football and run the ball effectively. The Texans are one of those teams, so Foster being active for the first time this season on Sunday was a huge positive. Maybe the Texans are just a bad team.
