HOUSTON (AP) - Bill O'Brien was reaching for positives a day after his debut as Texans coach could have hardly gone worse.
The offense went nowhere, the secondary was picked apart and the penalties mounted in Houston's 32-0 loss in Arizona on Saturday, a dismal outing that showed little has changed for the Texans since they dropped their last 14 games in 2013 and changed coaches.
O'Brien said Sunday that many players stood out individually, but ''they had their bad moments, too, like we all did.''
Poor quarterback play doomed the Texans in 2013 and it looks as if it's still an issue. Ryan Fitzpatrick, named the started by O'Brien during minicamp, played the entire first half and looked shaky, completing only 6 of 14 passes for 55 yards and two interceptions.
