According to David Culley, not even a legend could have helped the Texans’ offense in Buffalo.
By point differential, it was the worst loss in franchise history as Houston fell 40-0 in Buffalo. Previously, that number was 38. Rookie quarterback Davis Mills threw four interceptions and was sacked three times.
“It was a tough loss obviously,” said Mills. “We don’t want to ever have the feeling of putting up zero points.”
While Mills’ performance left plenty to be desired, Culley was quick to point out in his post game press conference that the third-round draft pick out of Stanford wasn’t the only problem on offense.
“This wasn’t just Davis Mills, everybody around Davis Mills... nobody played well around him. It’s not Davis. Our entire offense did not play well today,” said Culley.
Houston finished the game with 100 penalty yards.
“You could put Joe Montana out there today, and the way we played, you’re not going to have any success on offense,” said Culley.
One of Houston’s many problems came in the form of ten penalties.
“That’s an undisciplined football team and that starts with me,” said Culley. “And we’re going to get that corrected.”
