The Texans offensive line played their worst game in a while
Offensive line among the disappointments for Texans in loss
Plenty went wrong for the Houston Texans in their blowout loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. It would be unfair to pinpoint just one thing, but the offensive line had its worst day in a long time.
Deshaun Watson was sacked five times in the first half for a loss of 36 yards including one fumble.
The turnover happened early when wideouts couldn't get open and Watson scrambled in an attempt to make something happen. Matthew Judon would get to the Texans quarterback knocking him down and the ball loose.
The third Texans drive would begin by going backwards. This time Brandon Williams got home on Watson. A roughing the passer would eliminate the lost yards on the next play but it was another pop on Watson.
After the Ravens first score the Texans couldn't manage anything thanks to back-to-back sacks. The last sack of the first half would cost the Texans their last timeout. Deshaun Watson looked to get his ankle rolled up on during this play. The drive would end in a missed field goal.
The sixth sack of the day ended the first drive of the second half for Houston as their third down play ended with another Judon sack.
The rushing attack couldn't get going either. They managed just 36 yards on the ground in the first half with only 24 yards coming from the running backs. Baltimore's defense punished the Texans rushing attack every chance and with the issues through the air it wasn't meant to be for the ground game.
This is the first time in a while the offensive line has looked bad in all facets. The Ravens have a solid defense but to have these mistakes pop up when the game was still close is annoying. There should be some bounce back but no easy task with just a few days to recover ahead of Thursday night hosting the Colts.
