    Texans win with negative yards passing

    Hasn't happened since 1981.

    Texans | Team wins with negative yards passing
    Sun, 3 Dec 2006 21:21:25 -0800

    The Associated Press reports the Houston Texans became the first team in 25 years to win a game with negative yards passing. Texans QB David Carr failed to complete a pass in the second half of the Week 13 game and finished 7-of-14 passing for 32 yards. Carr was sacked five times for 37 yards during the game, leaving the Texans with minus-5 yards passing. Elias Sports Bureau reports the Texans were the first team since the Houston Oilers to finish with negative yards passing and win. The Oilers pulled off the feat Oct. 4, 1981, against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Looks like the Carr didn't even make it out of the garage this week for the Texans!
