On Monday, O'Brien was asked about his eruption, directed at special teams coach Larry Izzo after the Texans had just 10 men on the field at one point during the game.
"We have a strong staff, they overcome me," O'Brien said, according to the Houston Chronicle. "I did see that video. I couldn't believe what I saw. It had to be an impostor. Halloween, I'm sure there will be people in Houston dressed up as me tonight with a kick me sign on the back of it."
Apparently, this isn't the first time things have become heated around these parts.
"Things happen on the sideline," O'Brien said. "We have an intense staff. We had a basketball court outside the bubble. We were playing for a while and things got intense out there. The next time we showed up out there, the basketball hoop was gone. "We have an intense staff. I don't know where they get it from. I'm not that intense.
"Things happen. It's just the nature of the game. It's a competitive game. We all want to win. We've moved on from that. It won't happen again."
This will definitely happen again.
