NFL Power Rankings Roundup: Texans Ranked Among AFC Contenders

Yes, you read that right. The words "Texans" and "contenders" were used in the same sentence. The Texans are for real, folks. While some still question whether or not this team can make a deep playoff run (myself included), it is pretty clear that nobody wants to play this squad right now. The roster is finally healthy sans Arian Foster, the defense is firing on all cylinders, and Brian Hoyer is having easily the best year of his career. A lot of us doubted that Bill O’Brien could turn around this formerly disastrous season, and yet here we are. What a difference a month makes, eh? ...

Bill O’Brien praises Texans’ QB Brian Hoyer

Coach Bill O’Brien won’t go overboard on any of his players – except for maybe J.J. Watt – but he praised quarterback Brian Hoyer for his performance in Sunday’s 24-6 victory over New Orleans.

Incompletions: Texans v. Saints (Envisions, Scenarios, and Expectations)

With so much to write and talk about after every game, and not enough time for one man to write about it all, the masthead joins together and reacts to the Houston Texans' win over the New Orleans Saints. Matt Weston: When Bill O'Brien sat in his office, damp, a white towel wrapped around his neck and his chin crumpled while watching game film during training camp, this was the team he envisioned: an offensive line that controls the line of scrimmage, a pass rush that leaves offenses in tatters, a game plan that lets you win with Brian Hoyer but not because of him, tight ends that attack...

4Q Open Game Day Thread: Houston Texans v. New Orleans Saints

Can the Texans continue their new winning ways with a victory over the Saints at NRG Stadium? Talk about what's happening on the field as it occurs in Battle Red Blog's live open game thread for Texans-Saints today. Third quarter notes: Nate Washington draws the DPI, which is fortunate because he likely would've dropped the pass, anyway. Ryan Griffin with a long catch and run from Brian Hoyer.  Things I didn't think I'd ever type. Alfred Blue will get props for his TD run - as he should - but DeAndre Hopkins cleared the path for him over the last couple yards. J.J. Watt really needs...

3Q Open Game Day Thread: Houston Texans v. New Orleans Saints

Can the Texans continue their new winning ways with a victory over the Saints at NRG Stadium? Talk about what's happening on the field as it occurs in Battle Red Blog's live open game thread for Texans-Saints today. Second quarter notes: Brian Hoyer gonna Hoyer. Brandon Browner with a penalty on a return?  LOLOLOLOLOL! Oh Johnathan Joseph, you almost had an easy pick six. Your Texans have the best tackling CBs in the league. This meatloaf is so, so awesome. Kevin Johnson with outstanding coverage on Willie Snead.  KJ can ball. I really think the basis of the offensive turn-around is...

Three And Out: Useless Predictions For Texans-Saints

Did Texans fans have a heaping side of optimism with their turkey yesterday? Or is the idea of Drew Brees losing to Brian Hoyer Co. too much to stomach? One Texans fan gives you his predictions before Sunday's game between the Texans and Saints? Admittedly, I got quite a bit more wrong than right in last week's "Three and Out." That might be notable if it wasn't something that happens every week. Yet as I struggle to shake off the excesses of yesterday and rationalize yet another Longhorns loss, back into the breach I go. Here's how things are going to shake out when the Saints and...

Dulik: If the end isn’t at hand for Manziel, it should be

BEREA — Johnny Manziel never earned the right to start. Not as a rookie in front of Brian Hoyer, and certainly not this season ahead of Josh McCown. But the Browns gave him the job anyway — and gave him one condition to keep it. All Manziel had to do was not embarrass the franchise Read More...
