Texans must "turn the page", prep for Colts

Thursday night and a matchup with the AFC South rival Colts will be here soon.

After the Texans fell to the Ravens, 41-7, on Sunday in Baltimore, head coach Bill O'Brien and the players were focused on what's next.

"We've got to turn the page quickly here, learn from the mistakes and move forward," O'Brien said.

Quarterback Deshaun Watson said "it was one of those days" where the Texans just weren't able to execute, but the Ravens did. Getting back on the field in four days is welcomed by Watson.

"It's good," Watson said. "There's another opportunity Thursday night, back at home, against a good divisional team that won today. It's another opportunity for us to go out and show what we got."

Houston trailed 14-0 at the half, and was down 34-0 before running back Carlos Hyde found the end zone on 41-yard scoring run. The Texans fell to 6-4 with the loss. Coupled with a Colts win over the Jaguars on Sunday, Indianapolis is now 6-4. They lead the AFC South by virtue of their Week 7 victory over the Texans.

"It's an important game, obviously," O'Brien said of Thursday night's contest at NRG Stadium. "But we've got a good bunch of guys. It was terrible. If you watch our guys closely, guys were playing their asses off at the end of the game."

Cornerback Johnathan Joseph said the Texans were "obviously disappointed", but that they must push forward.

"If we had to play our next game 10 days from now, we'd be miserable," Joseph said. "Because every day coming into work you'd be thinking about it. We've just got to get that bad taste out of your mouth, because today wasn't Texans football."

Running back Carlos Hyde scored the Texans' lone touchdown when he got loose for a 41-yard score in the middle of the fourth quarter. He finished with 65 yards on nine carries, and emphasized the importance of resetting for Week 12.

"We've got a short week," Hyde said. "We've got to move on and get ready for Indianapolis."

The Texans kick off against Indianapolis at 7:20 p.m. inside NRG Stadium this Thursday.
