Kubiak on what disappointed him the most

The Texans were hit with 14 penalties for 113 yards Sunday. That won't help you beat many teams, let alone the defending Super Bowl champs.

"I'm very disappointed," Gary Kubiak said. "The biggest disappointment is in the discipline. That's my responsibility."

It was actually the Ravens who started out sloppy. In the first quarter, Baltimore was hit with five penalties for 37 yards. By the half the Ravens had eight for 77 yards. That's where the Ravens cleaned it up and the Texans got worse.

In the second frame, Baltimore committed just two more penalties and the Texans, after committing seven in the first half, were flagged for seven more in the second. Andre Johnson said after the game that the undisciplined by the Texans was something he hasn't seen around this team in awhile. The Texans' 14 penalties tied the franchise record, which was set in 2002.

In the Texans' season opener, they had seven penalties for 73 yards. And in their overtime win over the Titans in Week 2, Houston was flagged for nine penalties for 70 yards.
