Brock Osweiler admits mistakes

Osweiler admitted in the same article that he did not perform well against the Chargers.

“I didn’t play very good today. I feel like I left a lot out there on the field, that I could have done much better. I could have done a much better job in certain situations,” Osweiler added.

“I really felt like those guys went out there and truly battled and played great football, and bottom line I need to play better for us to win. I feel like our team gave us the opportunity to win today and I didn’t play up to what I’m capable of doing, and that’s on me and I’ll get that cleaned up.”

Texans can still win division

However, the Texans they are playing in one of the worst divisions in the league. Houston dropped to 6-5 in the loss to San Diego. They are still half a game behind the Tennessee Titans (6-6) and one game ahead of the Indianapolis Colts (5-6).
