The Houston Texans are a hot topic, and it happened quickly. Within the span of two weeks, the Texans posted a winning record and beat one of the standard bearers in the AFC. Throw in C.J. Stroud and Devin Singletary earning back-to-back offensive player of the week honors, and there is excitement teeming on Kirby Drive.
However, coach DeMeco Ryans is trying to get his team to still stay levelheaded.
“The conversation that comes about success and how you handle it is don’t get the big head,” Ryans told reporters Nov. 15. “We stay humble and we stay hungry — that’s what it’s all about. You stay humble and that’s the only way I know how to approach it. Just as much as people talk great about you, if something goes wrong, they’ll be talking bad about you the next day.”
Ryans’ approach countermeasures the emotional upswings of a season. If a team successfully prepares each week, the results should achieve high performance.
Said Ryans: “We don’t ride the ups and the downs of the season. We prepare the same way each and every week and we go out and play our best football on Sunday. That’s all that matters. We can’t get caught up in the headlines because headlines don’t win you games. You got to go execute, you got to go play good football to win games and that’s the only thing that matters to us.”
The Texans get back in action Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals with a 12:00 p.m. Central Time kickoff at NRG Stadium.
