Houston Texans tilt with Dallas deemed top Week 5 NFL game

The first weekend of October means that the NFL season is in full swing, with haves and have-nots starting to emerge. That reality helps set up each week’s slate, providing an insight on what is a great match-up and what’s a game that should be skipped. Already, it’s possible to foresee what games look like they’ll have meaning later in the year and which ones won’t. October...

J.J. Watt played the role of good son recently by buying his mother, Connie, a brand new car for her birthday. The sweet new ride was delivered to Camp Randall Stadium, the arena where Watt starred as a collegian with the Wisconsin Badgers, and presumably nearby where his parents still reside (Watt was raised in Pewaukee, […] The post J.J.

The Houston Texans signed CB Jumal Rolle off the Packers’ practice squad and released veteran RB Ronnie Brown, according to John McClain.

Houston Texans shut out of NFL offensive awards (and disappointments) so far

There’s an old saying in the NFL: Teams can’t win a championship in September, but they certainly can lose one. Translation? Getting off to a good start doesn’t ensure late-season success, but struggling out of the gates almost guarantees that a team won’t be playing in January. That’s why taking a moment to look at the state of the NFL one-fourth of the way through the...

Hold off on the J.J. Watt MVP talk

The rise of Houston's Bill O’Brien

Nearly three years ago, I knew very little about current Houston Texans head coach Bill O’Brien. Truth be told, I wasn’t exactly enthralled when my alma mater, Penn State, hired O’Brien to be the man tasked with replacing Joe Paterno and popular defensive coordinator Tom Bradley, the man who took over as interim coach after […] The post Not A Sideshow BOB: The Rise Of Bill...

Ryan Fitzpatrick Delivers Passionate Pregame Speech Before Facing Bills (Video)

Houston Texans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was fired all the way up before Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills. Although defensive end J.J. Watt and linebacker Brian Cushing typically lead the pregame huddles, the two players decided to turn the honor over to their bearded signal-caller, who was overflowing with emotion about facing his former team.

Jadeveon Clowney Yet to Make NFL Impact

There has never been an NFL draft prospect quite like Jadeveon Clowney. Clowney is 6-foot-5 and runs a 4.5-second 40-yard dash. His arms are 35 inches long, and his 266 pounds are almost entirely muscle. His freakish physical attributes make Julius Peppers look like an ordinary guy. Clowney’s athleticism is indisputable, and for anybody to […] The post Jadeveon Clowney Yet to...

Why the Houston Texans should make a change at quarterback

Ryan Mallett could very well be the future of the Texans at quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick had his worst game as a Texan Sunday, and hopefully it will be his last game overall starting. In the first two games, Fitzpatrick was able to lean on a strong running game that kept the defense on their heels. The Oakland Raiders and Washington Redskins defenses are not good, but at times the...

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster Pretty Much Puts the Business of the NFL on Blast on Twitter

Houston Texans running back Arian Foster has been doing his talking on the field the last couple weeks. So far when he's 'talked' on Sunday he's talked pretty well, but when it comes to actaully talking to the media he still isn't too crazy about it. He did, however, 'talk' to the world about the current issues of the day plaguing the NFL--domestic violence...
