Head Coach Gary Kubiak let his players know after the New England loss that the season isn’t over and they are still 11-2. The Patriots have a way of making a team look utterly defenseless when they are clicking on all cylinders, but Kubiak knows this could be a turning point, good or bad. He’s hoping it’s for the good of the team that they will learn from the experience. He challenged his team to forget about yesterday and focus on tomorrow. “He just stated what was true,” according to defensive end Antonio Smith said via “He started it off by saying, ‘Now you see what it takes to win games like this, to play like this. What you (were) in the first half let you know what these type of games are about.’ That’s absolutely true. “It’s a challenge from tomorrow throughout the rest of the season. It’s a challenge, what type of team we’re going to be. All that other stuff we’ve got, clinching, playoff berth, it doesn’t matter. We’ve got to continue to stack wins – win until we can’t win anymore.” “(Kubiak) wasn’t pleased with the performance that we came out with, not at all,” safety Danieal Manning said after the game. “He basically was saying if we’re going to be a championship team, we have to face teams like this. We have to go through situations that we were in and we have to deal with things that were out in front of us. We didn’t handle the way that a championship (team) did. They did.” “What we learned the most is what it takes to play in these types of games. We’re a young team, man. And you know now. You’ve got to take it like a man. You’ve got to take it all in. Everything. Everything. Take it all in, savor it and apply it to the next game and apply it to the next time we see ‘em, because I have no doubt in my mind this epic battle will happen again.” var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});

Despite record, Texans can't measure up to Pats

Oh, Texans

And with that, there’s no hope of an NFL prime time being watchable for the rest of the regular season. Sorry, folks. We’ll still live blog ‘em, but they ain’t gonna be fun. Speaking of prime time, both of Houston’s losses have come in the national spotlight against top-tier quarterbacks. Does that mean that the Texans are guilty of clownfraudishness? I’m sure the talking...

Texans Embarrassed Again in Primetime, Leave Doubt About Place Among NFL’s Elite Teams

Making the MVP Argument For J.J. Watt and Aldon Smith

Getting You Ready For Pats-Texans

Isn’t it when the big games are actually on in prime time? That hasn’t always been the case this year on Thursday/Sunday/Monday nights.
