An NFL head coach is getting "you should be fired" calls following his questionable late-game decision in overtime this afternoon.

The Colts just lost to the Texans, 37-34, in overtime in a game that seemed destined to be a tie - well, until head coach Frank Reich got in the way.

Indianapolis' head coach opted to go for it on a 4th and 4 at his own 42-yard line after Houston head coach Bill O'Brien was playing for the tie. The Colts didn't get it and it cost them the game.

"Andrew Luck – throwing to the likes of Zach Pascal, Chester Rogers and Marcus Johnson – rallies the Colts back from 18 in the second half to force overtime. And the Colts lose 37-34 in OT to fall to 1-3 on the season. Frank Reich went for it, and it cost his team the game," Zak Keefer tweeted.

Fans aren't happy.

At least one person is praising him, though.

The Colts dropped to 1-3 on the season, while the Texans notched their first victory of the year.
