“You learn a lot from losing,” Garcon said following Sunday’s 33-10 loss to the Eagles. “When you’re winning you think you’re on top of the world, but you learn a lot more from losing. We’ll go back and watch [the film], try to get better. Work on things. Keep learning. Keep taking things away. Just keep playing. You can’t give up.”
Houston had a 38-34 lead, but the Seahawks were driving. Seattle was on the Texans’ 20-yard line, and Russell Wilson threw an interception to Houston’s Marcus Williams. But the Texans couldn’t do anything with their next possession. Seattle got the ball back, and Wilson got the Seahawks in the end zone to take a 41-38 lead. The Texans had just 21 seconds to work with. Richard Sherman picked off Deshaun Watson to seal the win for Seattle.
Who stood out: Will Fuller. The Watson to Fuller connection has been exceptional this season, and Sunday was no different. Fuller had five catches for 125 yards and two touchdowns.
The Texans offense was a tough test for the Seahawks defense. Seattle hadn’t allowed a touchdown in the fourth quarter all season, but that changed on Sunday.
Earl Thomas and Richard Sherman baited Deshaun Watson into three picks, but Watson was otherwise phenomenal. He finished with 402 yards, four touchdowns, and the three picks. Watson has more than held his own against the likes of Tom Brady and Wilson, but the Texans have lost both of those games.
The Seahawks defense is a force to be reckoned with. Five sacks and three picks were key to Seattle’s win.
“You can’t get caught up in that record and all of those things,” Shanahan said. “It’s something that we are extremely disappointed in, but sitting here and talking about it and dwelling on it is not going to help us in the future. We have to come to work and look at this hard to find out where we can get better.
