Houston Texans head coach Bill O’Brien blew a fuse Sunday during his team’s home game against the Detroit Lions after his special teams hit the field with just 10 men.
The subject of his ire was special teams coach Larry Izzo, who failed in his responsibility to have his crew ready for action on a punt following a three-and-out to start the third quarter.

Not surprisingly, folks on social media had a bit of fun at O’Brien’s expense following his eruption.

The Texans led the Lions by the score of 14-3 at this point in the game. We hate to see what might happen if they blow this lead.
