We have become conditioned to mediocrity.
What else can be said when the Texans giving up 34 points barely registers a blip on the radar screen? I predicted the Eagles to score 35 before the game, and was not at all disappointed. The good news, I guess, is that we only have to put up with this team and it's infuriating defensive scheme and talent for four more games before we get to head into the offseason and watch the Texans not sign any defensive players. Again.
On that happy note, hit the jump for some TV listings.
