Donte Stallworth’s deep touchdown catch. Jacoby Brissett running around in a 27-0 shutout. That faux one-possession loss in 2013 that was another notch in a fourteen game losing streak.

And while it stings to lose, I can’t help but wonder which is worse: to be in a game all the way to the end only to lose in heartbreaking fashion the way the Texans did today, or to get completely outclassed and non-competitive from the get-go. It definitely stings...
