It’s not looking promising for the Houston Texans.
Kyle Allen landed the starting quarterback position after much back and forth, but that isn’t all the Texans are having difficulty with. The defense is seemingly lacking as going into halftime, Tua Tagovailoa and the Miami Dolphins were up 30-0.
It is obvious the Texans are frustrated with their performance on the field, especially after one of the defenders was caught kicking over a Gatorade cooler on the sideline.
Defensive End Jerry Hughes Clearly Frustrated With Texans Performance
Jerry Hughes, defensive end for the Houston Texans, was caught kicking a Gatorade cooler on the sideline mid-field during the Miami Dolphins game.
FanDuel shared the incident to Twitter, using the caption, “NOT THE GATORADE 😫 Jerry Hughes was not happy with the Texans defense 👀.”

Another NFL fan shared a video of the incident, writing, “Frustration continues for the #Texans, Jerry Hughes visibly upset on the sideline, kicking a Gatorade cooler. Just nothing really going right. Hughes has 8 sacks this season, played for the Bills last season. Not sure if he’s experienced something like this much.”

The Miami Dolphins were leading the Houston Texans 30-6 going into the fourth quarter. The Dolphins decided to sit their star quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa due to the massive lead.
Other NFL Incidents Involving the Destruction Of Equipment
This is not the first time a player was seen taking their frustrations out on the sideline. During the Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Carolina Panthers game, quarterback Tom Brady was seen on the sideline, extremely frustrated not being able to pull anything together offensively, and he took his anger out on the team’s equipment.
Earlier in the season, during Week 3, Tom Brady was frustrated once again with his team and the 45-year-old was caught throwing and, this time, breaking a tablet on the sideline.
Things turned around for the Buccaneers as they ended up defeating the Saints 20-10. After the game ended, Brady shared a video on Twitter addressing the tablet incident.
“Great win to get to 2-0,” Brady started in the video before apologizing for his behavior earlier in the game. “Sorry for breaking that tablet,” he said smiling, “I think that’s going to be another Twitter meme or something like that.”
And during the divisional match-up between the Buffalo Bills and the Miami Dolphins a few weeks ago, emotions were running high as quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and the Dolphins ultimately beat Josh Allen and the Bills 21-19.
Shortly after the game ended, a video clip of Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey was aired on television, showing him having a complete meltdown, and throwing tablets and other items, eventually breaking the camera as the screen went black.
The Houston Texans are currently 1-8-1, but if they lose to the Miami Dolphins, they will go to 1-9-1. They are currently in last place in their division.
Next week, they will face the Cleveland Browns at home.
