Luke McCown once again led the Buccaneer offense but to no avail as the defense was repeatedly beaten on third down and three Sage Rosenfels touchdowns gave the Texans their victory.  “We just didn't do a good job of getting off the field today” said Derrick Brooks.  “They made plays and we didn't."
