After two straight losses, the Houston Texans’ Week 1 spark is beginning to waver and confidence in the team is beginning to wane, according to fans.
According to this week’s SB Nation Reacts poll, only 61% of fans believe the team is heading in the right direction, which is a second straight week of a plummeting result.
Much of the team’s struggles early in the season can be attributed to quarterback Davis Mills, who threw a late interception in Sunday’s loss to the Chicago Bears. However, 56% of fans think it’s still too early to tell if Mills can be the franchise’s quarterback in the future. On the other hand, 39% of fans are willing to seek a high draft pick in 2023 NFL Draft.
However, despite Mills’ and attack’s struggles, the defense played well and 78% of fans think the unit is better than last year, while 21% want the team to perform better in the fourth. quarter. The Texans have held a tie or a lead in the fourth quarter of each of the three games so far, but they have no wins to show for it.
The Texans will be looking to get back into the win column on Sunday as they take on the Los Angeles Chargers at home. Kick-off is scheduled for 12 p.m.
