HOUSTON - The Houston Texans have been concerned about their slow starts all season. Jake Elliott Youth Jersey . After they fell behind 24-0 in the first quarter in a loss to Indianapolis, coach Bill OBrien is putting it on his team to change things.I think the players need to make up their minds that theyre going to start well, OBrien said.Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick isnt sure why theyve struggled so much early in games, but knows they have to figure out a way to turn it around.Just got to come out more focused I think, he said. More focused and ready to go. Just continue to make it a point of emphasis.Houston has scored just 14 points in the first quarter this season and all of those points came in a win over Oakland in Week 2. Since then theyve been incapable of doing anything on offence in the opening frame.OBrien said it might be as simple having one good thing happen early so theyll have something to build on.If we start the game with a positive play a first down, gain four, gain five; second-and-5, then gain three (and) then its a positive or manageable third down, OBrien said. We get that first first-down, were able to get into a good tempo, a good rhythm and were going.Many have blamed Houstons tough starts on quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who was 0 for 4 in a first quarter against the Colts where the team gained just two yards. But OBrien took up for his quarterback on Friday.When you look at the film, the film never lies, OBrien said. What the film shows us is that everybody on offence has to play better. Everybody. The line has to play better, the backs have to play better, the tight ends, the receivers and we have to coach better.Still, Fitzpatrick is quick to point out that he needs to do more early in games.There is still a lot of room for improvement, he said. Weve talked about getting off to better starts, but when we get in our groove you see what this offence can be. Its just a matter of doing it all the time.Perhaps more troubling than the slow start by the offence Thursday night was that the defence and special teams were also terrible in the first quarter. The defence allowed three touchdowns and a field goal in the first quarter and the special teams unit was surprised by an onside kick which the Colts recovered. OBrien said that when he watched the game film on Friday he saw that his team made an error on each of the games first 32 plays.Weve got to tackle better, he said. We gave up too many hit-and-yardage type plays because we didnt tackle, the first guy didnt make the tackle. Special teams, we just cant allow that to happen, that onside kick. Thats not good.The good news for the Texans is that theyve got a few extra days to prepare for their next game since they dont play again until a Monday night matchup at Pittsburgh on Oct. 20. Theres also a strong possibility they could get top overall pick Jadeveon Clowney back for that game, which would provide a boost to a defence that has been led by a stellar six games by defensive end J.J. Watt. Watt had two sacks on Thursday night and returned a fumble for a touchdown for his third score this season.Clowney has been out since having arthroscopic surgery on his right knee after injuring it in Houstons opener on Sept. 7.Hes progressing, OBrien said. I would say thats still 50-50 whether he plays in that game or not, but hes getting better. Hes working at it.Clowney is eager to get back, but hes leaving it to the medical staff to decide when hes ready to play.I talked to the trainers the other day about how Im responding to the drills and everything theyve got me doing, he said. Just time will tell. Its the healing process right now.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Joe Mixon Youth Jersey . He was 90. The team announced Monday that Adams had died, saying he "passed away peacefully from natural causes." The son of a prominent oil executive, Adams built his own energy fortune and founded the Houston Oilers. Jake Elliott Womens Jersey . -- Navy football player Will McKamey, who has been hospitalized since collapsing at practice three days ago, has died while in a coma. http://www.nflbengalsgearofficial.com/josh-malone-jersey/ . Mauer drove in two runs before leaving with an injury, Eduardo Nunez homered and the Minnesota Twins beat the Kansas City Royals 10-2 on Tuesday night.(SportsNetwork.com) - The Anaheim Ducks havent faced much adversity this season, but the Pacific Division leaders will try to avoid losing four straight games for only the second time this season when they visit the Calgary Flames on Wednesday night. It wasnt that long ago when the Ducks appeared poised to run away with the division title but the club has fallen on hard times of late. Anaheim has lost three straight and six of its last nine games and Bruce Boudreaus team is a pedestrian 7-7-2 over its last 16 games. The malaise has helped San Jose force its way into the Pacific title conversation. After winning for the eighth time in 11 games on Tuesday, the Sharks are just two points in back of Anaheim for first place. The Ducks are also two points behind St. Louis for the NHL lead. Anaheim has managed to gain two points during its current 0-1-2 slide, but the club came up empty in Mondays 3-1 home loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs. Phil Kessel and Tyler Bozak each registered a goal and two assists to lead Toronto to the victory in Leafs head coach Randy Carlyles return to Anaheim. Carlyle, of course, led the Ducks to their only Stanley Cup title in 2007. He served as Anaheims head coach for six-plus seasons before getting fired on Nov. 31, 2011 and replaced by Boudreau. Corey Perry scored the lone Ducks goal, while Frederik Andersen stopped 20 shots in the loss. "We had our fair chances, but we just couldnt capitalize on them," said Anaheim defenseman Francois Beauchemin. "I thought we played a decent game. We didnt get the result we wanted, but we had lots of chances offensively." The Ducks hope they can get back on track during a road-heavy portion of their schedule over the next few weeks. Anaheim, which has won three straight on the road and is 19-9-3 as the guest this season, kicks off a three-game trip tonight and will play seven of their next nine away from Orange County. Jake Elliott Jersey. Anaheim has claimed the first two of four meetings against the Flames this season and has won four of five and 10 of the past 13 encounters in this series. Calgary, however, has beaten the Ducks in three of the last four meetings at the Saddledome. The Flames, who are 17 points out of a playoff spot in the West, have lost two in a row. Calgary was last in action on Monday when it dropped a 3-2 decision to the visiting Los Angeles Kings. Calgary was down 3-0 with just under 13 minutes left in regulation, but made a valiant comeback effort behind goals from Mike Cammalleri and Brian McGrattan. In the end, however, the Flames were unable to get the equalizer and lost for the third time in five games. "Its unfortunate because I felt that defensively we did lots of good things, but we gave two goals off of tips in front and that ends up being the difference," said Calgary head coach Bob Hartley. "But once again we never quit. We pushed and we pushed and we made a decent come back." Joni Ortio made 20 saves in the loss and he could get another start in net tonight. The 22-year-old rookie has never faced the Ducks. Hiller expects to get the start for Anaheim. He is 5-4-1 with a 2.77 goals against average and .905 save percentage in 10 career games against the Flames. Calgary forward Markus Granlund is questionable for Wednesdays game with an upper-body injury suffered in the loss to the Kings. Defenseman Luca Sbisa is also questionable for Anaheim after sitting out Mondays game with a lower-body injury.
