Things are going pretty well for the Houston Texans in Week 8. Brock Osweiler showed off improved poise en route to a 16-of-23 first-half performance and a 14-3 lead over the 4-3 Lions.
You wouldn’t know it from Bill O’Brien’s sideline demeanor, however. The oft-angry Texans head coach had to be separated from his own assistant on Sunday.
The third-year Houston coach chewed out special teams coordinator Larry Izzo after the Texans lined up only 10 men on a kickoff and had to burn a timeout to fix the situation. Izzo knows a thing or two about special teams; the 14-year NFL veteran was both an All-Pro and Pro Bowler for his kicking game play with the New England Patriots.
