Texans CB Johnathan Joseph: ‘We were a better team’ than Patriots

The Texans were sent home by the Patriots on Sunday, a month after being routed by New England in the regular season, but Houston cornerback Johnathan Joseph [1] isn’t convinced the results tell the true story.

“For whatever reason, we didn’t advance,” Joseph said Monday, as quoted by CSNHouston [2]. “I still can’t put that over because I think we were a better team. I think we just didn’t make the plays at the right time.”

Joseph, headed to his second consecutive Pro Bowl [3], was part of a secondary that allowed 640 yards and seven touchdowns in the two games at Foxboro in which Houston was outscored 83-42. But stats aside, Joseph insists the Texans were right there with the Pats [4].

“Just four or five plays,” he said. “You take a few of those plays that they made and go the other way, it’s a different ballgame.”
