Packers vs. Texans 2012: Houston lacked poise, passion in loss

Houston's 42-24 loss to the Green Bay Packers wasn't the worst loss in Texans history, but it was one of the worst in terms of poise and passion in quite a while.

The Houston Texans lost their first game of the year in listless style on Sunday night, taking a 42-24 beatdown from the Green Bay Packers. The defense was carved up by Aaron Rodgers all night long, and the offense was only able to do enough to keep it from becoming a complete blowout in the end.

Texans blog Battle Red Blog called the team out after the game had ended, noting that while the loss was certainly not the worst loss in Texans history, it was still one of the least impressive performances in terms of poise and passion:

Well, there you have it. The worst game the Houston Texans have played since, well, I'm too lazy to look it up. There have definitely been worse Sundays in years past, but I don't recall a game recently where a mostly healthy Texans team played with such little poise, such poor coaching, and such limited passion.

Even with the loss, Houston doesn't have too much to complain about; the team is 5-1 for the first time in the history of the franchise. They'll face the Baltimore Ravens in Week 7.
