The Texans had a chance to break two 11-game losing streaks and couldn’t on Sunday. They have now lost 12 in a row this season and 12 in a row in Indianapolis.

Here are some more numbers that made up the 25-3 loss in Indy:

  • The Texans have scored three or fewer points nine times (0-9) in their history. They've done it twice this year. The seven other games were from the 2002 and 2003 seasons.
  • The Texans were able to gain just 239 yards of offense. This is the third time this season they have gained fewer than 250 yards. They’re 0-3 in those games and they’re 11-30 all-time in those games.
  • With the loss, the Texans are 0-12 all-time in Indianapolis.
  • Case Keenum's 43.2 passer rating was the worst of his career. It was the second-worst passer rating for a Texan this year after Matt Schaub's 32.2 against San Francisco.


His 43.2 is the eighth-worst passer rating by a QB with at least 30 attempts in the NFL this season. Keenum joins the likes of Geno Smith, Blaine Gabbert and Kellen Clemmons.

After throwing seven touchdowns with zero interceptions in his first three games, Keenum has thrown two touchdowns and six interceptions in the five games since.

  • A bright spot on Sunday was rookie tight end Ryan Griffin. He set a career high with six catches. He had five catches coming into the game.


It was the 18th time in franchise history a rookie had six or more catches in a game. He's the second tight end to do it. Owen Daniels caught nine balls in a game as a rookie in 2006.

  • Johnathan Joseph intercepted his third pass of the season. It was his ninth as a Texans and moves him into fourth in franchise history.


The Texans are still dead last in the NFL in interceptions with six.
