Breakfast: Texans look forward


The focus is now on Green Bay.

Moments after falling to the Chargers, 21-13, on Sunday at NRG Stadium, the Texans were already looking ahead to their Week 13 matchup with the Packers.

"We got to regroup," head coach Bill O'Brien said. "Come back tomorrow and watch the tape and then move on to Green Bay."

The Texans took a 7-0 lead at the start of the second quarter Sunday against San Diego, but a quartet of turnovers and nine penalties turned the tide after that. Veteran nose tackle Vince Wilfork explained what the Texans have to do.

"We've got to continue to fight," Wilfork said. "Continue to fight. Continue to get better, and move on. That's all you can do right now."

Defensive end Jadeveon Clowney was confident the Texans would bounce back as the month of December approaches.

"We know who we got in this locker room," Clowney said. "We're still in first place in our division. We've got to take it one game at a time and get ready for Green Bay."

At 6-5, and still in first atop at the AFC South, left tackle Duane Brown echoed Clowney's sentiments.

"Still have a lot to play for, still have a lot in front of us," Brown said. "We have a lot to clean up this week." 

Brown and the offensive line helped the Texans ground game churn out 114 yards. It was the sixth straight game the Texans have cracked the century mark on the ground. That's the second longest active streak in the NFL.
