With a short week to prepare for Friday night’s game against the Texans, Eddie Erdelatz decided to give his players a day off to recover from the opener. Practice would resume on Tuesday with an emphasis on shoring up the problems in the defensive secondary exposed by the Oilers’ passing attack.

Off the field, the big worry was about low attendance figures. The figure of under 13,000 was significantly lower than that expected by the front office and reflected a trend that had begun with the first preseason game.
