#1 -3 lead.That was set up by a muffed punt at von mary123 21.10.2019 08:06

MINNEAPOLIS -- His team was sharp in practice during the week, and Brock Osweiler brought a belief to Minnesota that he could help the Texans take home a win.The Vikings, with their relentless pass rush up front and coverage down the field, were ready with the reality check for Houstons $72 million man.Maintaining the NFCs only perfect record, Sam Bradford and the Vikings (5-0) built a big early lead before unleashing their defense on Osweiler and the Texans on the way to an easy 31-13 victory on Sunday.I knew we had a great challenge ahead of us, but I felt confident in what we could do, said Osweiler, who finished 19 for 42 for 184 yards, one interception and a late touchdown pass while taking four sacks. So Im very disappointed in the outcome today, and Im very disappointed in how I played.The Texans (3-2) were denied on 12 of 13 third downs, unable or unwilling to do much other than dump off short passes after the Vikings scored touchdowns on their first two drives. Houstons only two first downs in the first 26-plus minutes both came by penalty on Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes, who was otherwise busy hounding DeAndre Hopkins.Lamar Miller had eight carries for 20 yards during a dud of a performance by the Texans that looked a lot like the 27-0 loss at New England two weeks ago. Osweiler was under near-constant pressure in the pocket as 66,000 fans roared for the Vikings defense under the translucent roof at U.S. Bank Stadium.The crowd noise doesnt affect me or anything like that, Osweiler said. I try to use my feet as an internal clock of when I have to throw the ball away or when the ball needs to come out to a check down, but certainly theres always room for improvement after a loss like this.Coach Bill OBrien tried his best to take the blame, perhaps in part because of the pressure on Osweiler, who signed a four-year contract thats worth as much as $72 million with a whopping $37 million guaranteed. That was for a guy who had seven starts coming into 2016.Not only was Hopkins a nonfactor until the late score, but Will Fuller wasnt targeted until the first play of the second half. The rookie had only one catch, a head-scratching fourth-and-16 call in the third quarter at the Vikings 39 that netted 4 yards on a screen play.I thought that we had a good practice week, but it didnt show up on Sunday, OBrien said. Thats a reflection of the game plan, especially offensively, and it just wasnt good enough. Thats a reflection on me, and Im serious. I dont know any other way to tell you. Im not trying to cover for anybody.Houston has been hunting for a while for a quarterback to help make that deep run in the playoffs that has eluded the 15-year-old franchise. Matt Schaub was an important part of the 2011 and 2012 teams that each reached the AFC semifinals after winning one postseason game, but since he was hurt in 2013 the Texans have started seven quarterbacks since: Case Keenum, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Brian Hoyer, Ryan Mallett, T.J. Yates, Brandon Weeden and now Osweiler.Osweilers play for an injured Peyton Manning last year with eventual Super Bowl champion Denver made him the hot quarterback on the market, and the Texans were an obvious fit. Having the season opener at home against Chicago provided Osweiler a relatively comfortable way to debut during a 23-14 victory , but these games against the Patriots and the Vikings have exposed his inexperience.When youre out there and youre part of the offense, your job is to put points on the board, Osweiler said. Right now with our two road losses, we havent done that. Thats where it starts. We need to score more points. It starts with me.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Even Nick Saban sometimes has to deliver an I told you so to his team, along with a few other choice words.No. 1 Alabamas slow-starting 31-3 victory over FCS team Chattanooga on Saturday night was one of those times.Jalen Hurts passed for three touchdowns and rushed for 68 yards, but the Crimson Tide (11-0) spotted the Mocs (8-3) the games first three points and didnt really shake them until late in the third quarter. The defense had a more Bama-like performance, and hasnt given up a touchdown in 13 quarters.Sabans halftime message after a week of trying to get his players to take Chattanooga seriously: I said, `Do you believe me now?Id been telling them all week, Saban said. The rest wed better bleep out.Hurts was 15 of 21 for 136 yards a week after torching Mississippi State for 347 yards. He had a 47-yard TD pass to Calvin Ridley and added two 1-yarders to Gehrig Dieter, including one in the final minutes that made the score look a little closer to what most expected. Hurts set Alabamas single-season record for rushing yards by a quarterback.Damien Harris rushed for 91 yards and a touchdown and Ridley gained 94 yards on seven catches.Alabama wide receiver ArDarius Stewart did not play in the game, and Saban indicated he was held out because sometimes we have players that have a violation of our standard of behavior.It was a milestone win for Saban, whose 41-5 record as the No. 1 team gives him the most of any coach. He had been tied with Ohio States Woody Hayes (40-4-1) and Florida States Bobby Bowden (40-5).This one came after a string of more impressive performances against Southeastern Conference opponents.I worried about it all week long, Saban said. When youre playing conference games every week and youre playing big games every week, its really hard to get guys not to have a letdown.Chattanoogas first-quarter field goal put Alabama behind for the first time since Kentuckky scored the first three points on Oct.dddddddddddd 1. The Mocs trailed just 14-3 until deep into the third quarter before Harris raced 25 yards for a touchdown.Alejandro Bennifield completed 16 of 21 passes for 106 yards for the Mocs, who sacked Hurts three times.I remember playing them here in 2013 and barely recording a first down, Chattanooga coach Russ Huesman said. They have got a really good football team, and they probably slept walked coming into this game. I am not trying to think that they were all jacked up to play Chattanooga, but our guys were pretty excited to play, and I am awful proud of them.Alabama wasnt exactly pushing the Mocs around early. Chattanooga stopped two runs from the 1-yard line in the second quarter before Hurts rolled right on fourth down and hit Dieter in the end zone for a 14-3 lead.That was set up by a muffed punt at the 9.I guess we just underestimated them, Ridley said.THE TAKEAWAYChattanooga: Was almost even in total yards with Alabama midway through the third quarter. Didnt allow a sack to a defense that came in with the most in the nation.Alabama: It was probably the least impressive performance of the season, considering what `Bama is expected to do to FCS teams. Left tackle Cam Robinson and backup Korren Kirven, who started at right guard, both left late with shoulder injuries. Saban expects them to be able to play in the Iron Bowl.POLL IMPLICATIONSChattanooga: Came in ranked No. 11 in the FCS coaches poll and shouldnt be judged much for this one.Alabama: Still a lock to be No. 1 in the AP poll and playoff rankings, especially with teams behind Tide struggling.UP NEXTChattanooga: Finished the regular season and awaits its playoff fate.Alabama: Hosts Auburn in the Iron Bowl seeking a third straight win over its in-state rival.
