Texans - Rams: Regular Season 2017: Schedule, Game Time, TV Channel, Radio, And Online Streaming

Game two in our Post-DW4 world is against a surprisingly good team in the LA Rams. We won’t discuss last week. Let’s start by agreeing on that. This week, the Deshaun Watson-less Houston Texans will be travelling to the City of Angels to take on the Los Angeles Rams. In previous years, when Jeff Fisher was at the helm, and we had Romeo Crennel’s defense, with J.J. Watt, Whitney Mercilus, and a linebacking corps that could and would dominate games, this would have been a defensive slugfest between two teams that know that defense wins championships. The new look Rams, however, believe...

Red Zone Play: Why Not Kaepernick?

Red Zone Play: Why Not Kaepernick?

Bob McNair lost the team when he made his prison/inmates comments, whether they were taken out of context or not. O’Brien lost the offense when Deshaun Watson went down in practice – possibly as a result of an uncalled illegal hit on the quarterback last week. Vrabel lost the defense when J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus went down with season ending back-to-back injuries. So, at this point, the question becomes what else is there to lose? Colin Kaepernick, who hangs around NFL stories like the ghost of Tim Tebow, had his best years when playing in an offense that utilized the high...

Street Clothes Special: Colts at Texans

Street Clothes Special: Colts at Texans

Two teams whose franchise quarterback are injured does not make for a high scoring game The marketability of this game flew out the window when Texan’s QB Deshaun Watson injured his knee in practice and the Colt’s deemed QB Andrew Luck out for the season. The Texans’ injuries this season have derailed hopes for a playoff run. Losing J.J. Watt (knee) and Whitney Mercilus (chest) are the biggest injuries.

Texans-Colts Preview: Five Things To Watch

Texans-Colts Preview: Five Things To Watch

Here’s five things to watch for when the Texans play the Colts. Deshaun Watson was injured yesterday. Or maybe the day before; I can’t be sure. He’s gone so it doesn’t matter. This season doesn’t matter. Nothing matters. The Texans don’t have the defense like it did last year without J.J. Watt, Whitney Mercilus, and A.J. Bouye, or a good offensive line needed for Tom Savage to be able to play the game of football. You can be an optimist. You can talk yourself into eight wins, and then who knows? You can do all of that. But no matter what, once all this time passes, the...
