Minnesota Vikings vs. Houston Texans: Report Cards, Final Grades for Houston

The Houston Texans won the battle but lost the war as they lose to the Minnesota Vikings 23-6. 

Anyone would have thought the key to this game was holding Adrian Peterson under 100 yards rushing got their wish. He only had 86 yards, but it was his quarterback that proved to be singular factor in the game.

It was not his passing yardage or even his scrambling that made the difference. Christian Ponder forced the Texans to play from behind and their offense was obviously not up to the task.

Even though Houston has captured the AFC South division title, it now feels as if more than just the home field advantage hangs on winning in Indianapolis next week. This team must now regain their confidence and self-respect before the playoffs commence.
