Britt says the game plan was good, but the execution was not.
Texans center Justin Britt met the media Tuesday in preparation for this week’s game in Denver against the Broncos and addressed the breakdowns that plagued the unit in the fourth quarter and overtime after playing well for the first three-quarters of the game Week 1 vs. Indianapolis.
As the team’s center, Britt took responsibility for the breakdowns:
“I feel like for me personally I made a couple critical errors at some times. I’m going to put more weight on my shoulders, and maybe there needs to be. I hold myself to a standard. I like Pep’s (Hamilton) offense, I like our approach and I like the way the game was called. We, us, me can execute more and definitely put more points on the board.”
When asked specifically about miscommunications late, Britt responded:
“If there is a communication error, it starts with me being the voice of the o-line. The guy who sets it all. I false started for something that shouldn’t have happened. I was late on a snap and Tytus (Howard) false started, and again, that shouldn’t have happened. Just things like that. Just do better next time.”
Britt stated that the team knows what they need to do to improve for this week’s game:
“I think it just comes down to details, fundamentals, technique. My first live reps of the season, looking at myself, I was a little out of control. Whether that was excitement or gameday jitters, that’s something I need to improve on. I can’t speak for everyone. I’m ready to get back to work and to put something better on film and make sure we add something to the win column this week.”
The Broncos defense has 2 sacks, 4 QB hits, and 3 tackles for loss Monday night vs. the Seahawks.
The Texans travel to Denver to take on the Broncos Sunday. Kickoff is at 3:25p CT.
