    Patriots.Sure, it was embarrassing and unexpected to get dominated like they
    were. But they know theyll have to get over it quickly to avoid it carrying over
    into their next game .Weve got Tennessee, a division game, coming up, so weve
    got to get our head screwed on right, said Houston nose tackle and former
    Patriot Vince Wilfork. We want to win every game. Unfortunately that doesnt
    happen a lot, so you move forward. That is what we have to do now.Coach Bill
    OBrien isnt worried about his team bouncing back from the shutout .We have a
    resilient bunch of guys, he said. They know that its only the third game of the
    season and theyre going to work very, very hard to correct the mistakes, and
    theyre going to work very hard on Tennessee.Although he doesnt want his team to
    wallow in what happened against the Patriots, OBrien and his coaching staff will
    study film to try and figure out how things went so wrong.You have to think
    about how youre going to correct your mistakes, the players mistakes, and learn
    from it and then move on, he said. You cant just bury the tape and then move on
    to Tennessee.The Texans (2-1) were done in by a number of things Thursday night,
    none more glaring than turnovers on special teams. Houston lost two fumbles on
    kickoffs, which led to 14 points by the Patriots. One of the fumbles was by
    Charles James and the other came from primary kick returner rookie Tyler Ervin.
    OBrien said Ervin will continue to get the bulk of the returns despite his
    miscue.Hes a rookie and hes had some decent returns for us, OBrien said. Hell
    learn from it. Hell get better from it and well really work with him to improve
    on it.Of course he and James were far from the only players who made mistakes
    against the Patriots. Brock Osweiler threw an interception and failed to get
    Houstons offense on New Englands side of the field until late in the third
    quarter after looking solid in the first two games. OBrien was quick to point
    out that the struggles of the offense werent all on Osweiler.I do not think he
    took a step back, OBrien said. I think he obviously has to limit the turnovers,
    but I think overall, I thought that he hung in there pretty well. I think its
    the rhythm of the offense, everybody doing their job, the protection, the
    running game, the route running, catching the football.OBrien is looking for
    improvements in his running game after Houston was outgained 185-109 on Thursday
    night. New running back Lamar Miller had 80 yards rushing behind a line still
    without veteran left tackle Duane Brown. OBrien saw some progress by the group
    through the first two games, but that didnt carry over into Thursday nights
    game.It has to be more consistent, he said. I thought it was more consistent
    against Kansas City than it was against New England and ... with an extra day of
    preparation, well work very hard to improve that.The unit could get a boost soon
    with Brown, who has been out since quadriceps surgery in January, inching closer
    to a return.I dont think he will play against Tennessee, but I know that theres
    a shot for the next game, OBrien said.---Online: AP NFL website: and

    back Ezekiel Elliott has participated in three full practices the last three
    days and coach Jason Garrett said he anticipates the Dallas Cowboys first-round
    pick will play Thursday against the Seattle Seahawks.Elliott suffered a
    hamstring injury on Aug. 2 while the Cowboys practiced in Oxnard, California. He
    missed eight straight practices and the first two preseason games, but he was
    able to participate in two workouts before the team returned to Texas last
    week.Im excited to finally get some full-go action, Elliott said Tuesday. Its
    been a long time.Garrett wasnt sure how much Elliott would play against the
    Seahawks. The third game of the preseason is most like the regular season for
    the starters, but since this is Elliotts first game some accommodations will be
    made.What we try to do with players playing in their first game is we have 8,
    10, 12 plays, sometimes we go 15 to 20 plays with guys, Garrett said. So well
    have a plan for him. Well talk about that over the next couple of days.Typically
    with running backs,, you want to make sure they get a couple of touches, throw
    them a couple passes, let them do different things, the things theyre going to
    do in games.ddddddddddddWell have those specific discussions in the next couple
    of days and well come up with a good plan for him.Despite missing the practice
    time and two preseason games, Elliott does not feel behind. I think Ive done a
    good job getting my mental reps when I was out and Im finally getting back into
    the groove, he said. I think Im ready.Last week against the Miami Dolphins,
    Alfred Morris carried 13 times for 86 yards and a touchdown. As he watched from
    the sideline, Elliott liked the size of the holes opened by the offensive line.
    The line could be bolstered by the potential return of left tackle Tyron Smith,
    who has been recovering from a stinger.We definitely have the best O-line in
    America, Elliott said, so its going to be exciting to get behind that line. ' '
