The Houston Texans have actually had minutes to win ballgame with drives late in the previous 2 weeks, however have actually stopped working to do so, which has actually been a crucial part of their 0-1-1 record.
Against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 1 at NRG Stadium, Houston had 3 drives to get the win and hardly surpassed midfield on just one of those drives, leading to a 20-20 tie.
In Week 2 at the Denver Broncos, the Texans went four-and-out on a possible game-tying drive.
Quarterback Davis Mills doesn’t think that it is a case of nerves, which would be a sensible conclusion provided he has actually begun in simply 13 video games of his 15-game profession.
“I’m comfortable in those situations,” Mills informed press reporters after practice Wednesday. “Just got to execute my job. Looking back on it, there’s opportunities down the field. Got to execute with those. Missed a couple throws this last game, but then if they cover up, like I said before, we’ve got to be able to get our checkdowns the ball and let them make plays and move the ball that way.”
Even though the Texans haven’t attained their very first complete win of the season, Mills can see proof on tape of possible success, pending the offense carries out in such late parts of the video game.
“Just seeing that on film and reflecting on it, I think we’re in a really good spot right now,” stated Mills. “Those fourth quarter moments late in the game when we’ve got to go down and do something. Those are the make or break between a good team and a bad team. I think our team is really optimistic about where we’re at and we’re ready to go and prove it this weekend.”
The Texans have a possibility to reveal their nerve in late video game scenarios when they handle the 1-1 Chicago Bears Sunday at 12:00 p.m. Central Time at Soldier Field.
