Good day for Texans defense at Saturday's practice

Texans defense gets the better of offense

By Adam Wexler - Sports Anchor/Reporter

White Sulphur Springs, W.Va. - The Houston Texans are down to just three more practice in the cool conditions of The Greenbrier resort in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.

The offense will have to wait until Monday to even the score with a defense that clearly had the upper hand during Saturday morning's workout.

“Offensively, we didn’t have a good day today, so we have to pick it back up on Monday," head coach Bill O'Brien said. "Defense came out flying, so we have to pick it up offensively. We’ve had a good camp. We’ve had a good camp offensively, but today wasn’t one of our better days.

"It’s the twelfth training camp practice. It happens," O'Brien said.

"We’ve had our days, too, where the defense hasn’t had the best of days.”

Defensive end J.J. Watt certainly agreed with O'Brien's assessment.

“Today was a great day. Today was a lot of fun. Those are the types of practices that you love." Watt said.

"When you strap on the pads and you go out there and you just let it fly. Defense flying around having fun, everybody making plays from all different places. It’s a blast."

"That’s what you expect, and every single time we come on the field we have to put that effort out, we have to put that result out. We understand that’s kind of the bar we set. We have to match that every single day,” linebacker Brian Cushing said.
