O'Brien took blame for the team's "terrible" play, saying it was on the coaching staff.
"Tonight was not a good night of football," O'Brien said, per the Houston Chronicle. "It all starts with me. ... It was bad football."
He'll get no argument about his team's play here. The Texans were outperformed in every phase of the game.
O'Brien blamed the entire offensive unit. It's true the offensive line struggled and the receivers didn't make any plays, but the quarterback situation was by far the biggest culprit -- not to mention the worst situation in the NFL.
Until O'Brien gets the quarterback situation figured out, he's likely to see many more "terrible" performances during his first NFL campaign.
