With a chance to repeat the trick against the division-leading Bengals this weekend, Mallett assured reporters that he's -- drumroll, please -- on to Cincinnati.
"To me, last week's over and it's a whole new week," Mallett said, per the Houston Chronicle. "It's back to the grind and getting ready to go. ... What we have to do is build on what we established last week as a team."
The site points out that when the ball was out of Mallett's hand in under 2.5 seconds, his passer rating soared to 123.1 compared to just 31.3 when he held the ball longer.
"This game is very humbling," Mallett said. "Once you think you've arrived, you figure out different. So my thought process is be the best I can every day at whatever it is."
