I won’t shy away from the bad plays. It was a tough game and we will get over it. The Texans defense shut us down and we struggled with bad mistakes in the second half.

Here is that Brian Cushing interception all over again:

First off, it was a phenomenal play. He had to dive in order to snag that ball and he made a ridiculous play…. BUT Philip tried to adjust to the blitz and read the play wrong. He tried to thread the needle over to Danny Woodhead and Cushing was all over that play. Check out the tight end on the play running wide open. Philip must have assumed that Cushing was going to pick up the tight end, but Philip stared down Woodhead in the play and we know the rest.
