The Texans picked up 123 rushing yards on Sunday at Lambeau Field, but it wasn't enough.

In the 21-13 loss to the Packers, they cracked the 100-yard mark as a team. It was the seventh straight contest in which they've eclipsed the century mark. On the day, they averaged 4.6 yards per carry.

Alfred Blue, who'd missed the previous two games with a calf injury, carried five times for 38 yards, including a 25-yarder early in the fourth quarter.

Jonathan Grimes led the way with 43 yards on five carries, and twice came through on third down for the Texans. He deflected the praise that came his way, and instead lauded his blockers up front.

 

"I can't take any credit for that," Grimes said. "Come on: it's the line. The o-line was moving people, and I just found my hole. I was just doing my job."

Lamar Miller left the game in the first quarter with a ribs injury, but returned to action later in the first half. He wound up with 22 yards on 14 carries, but remained optimistic after the game.

"We just have to bounce back and find a way to win," Miller said. "We have to finish, and find a way to stay on the same page."

Grimes agreed, and said the Texans have everything they need to succeed over the final quarter of the season. 

"There's nothing missing," Grimes said. "We just have to fix a couple of things. Make a couple of tweaks. We've got who we need. We believe in each other. I know we'll get it done."

The Texans will travel to Indianapolis next weekend for a Sunday noon matchup with the Colts.
