After the debacle in New Orleans last weekend, all we have heard all week is that this is the "same old Texans."
Things to the effect of how they are scared of prosperity and they can't win a close game, etc.
But this week proves that this Texans team is cut from a different cloth.
All Texans teams from the past would have found a way to lose this game. When the Steelers came back in the third quarter and looked like they were about to take the game over, the team fought back.
The Steelers tried to bully them and they turned around and bullied them right back.
With multiple opportunities in the fourth quarter, the Steelers were unable to get anything off of the Texans defense. Another thing that wouldn't have happened last year.
But the biggest thing is how they faced adversity today. The officiating just might have been some of the worst I've seen in my thirty years of watching football.
They overcame the penalties and still found a way to score. They found a way to overcome the zebra's robbing Johnathan Joseph of two touchdowns that would have made this game not even near as close as it ended up being.
The previous nine Texans teams would have folded like a cheap suit against this team and those situations. But they stood tall and won a game at home that playoff teams are supposed to win.
