The Texans somehow managed to pull out a big road win in overtime against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.

Colts quarterback Andrew Luck had a monster game, as did Texans stars Deshaun Watson and DeAndre Hopkins, who connected 10 times for 169 yards and a touchdown.

But that didn’t stop Texans’ fans and members of the media from ripping head coach Bill O’Brien, especially after a questionable decision to run the ball in a late-game situation with the clock running down.

And many of those fans are still hoping owner Bob McNair will axe O’Brien sooner rather than later.
