How far can Deshaun Watson carry the Texans? The NFL’s “statistical highlights” for this week included a few that really shine: Houston rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson threw three touchdown passes in the Texans’ 33-17 win over Cleveland. Watson has thrown at least three touchdown passes in three consecutive games and is the first rookie in NFL history to accomplish the feat. Watson has 12 passing touchdowns in the past three games, the most in league annals by a rookie in any three-game span. This season, Watson has 15 passing touchdowns, the most ever by a rookie in his...

Houston Texans Injury Report: Dylan Cole Out For A Minimum Of Four Weeks

Houston Texans Injury Report: Dylan Cole Out For A Minimum Of Four Weeks

Dylan Cole is expected to be out for at least four weeks. The Texans’ linebackers looked fast in coverage with Benardrick McKinney blitzing, Zach Cunningham moving from the center of the field to the sideline, and Dylan Cole chasing Duke Johnson down the sideline. After sticking his arm out and accidentally intercepting a pass, he was tackled from behind. There he pounded the turf with his fist and was helped off the field. Based off his reaction the injury looked bad. Really bad. The towel covering his face as he was carted off the locker room made it look even worse. Well there’s...

Snap Counts: Texans v. Browns

Snap Counts: Texans v. Browns

Take a look at the snap stats from Week Six. This is a very special and very important week of “Snap Counts.” It is the first week the Texans have played without J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus this season. The Browns game should offer a glimpse of how the Texans plan to move on without their two defensive stars on the front seven. Offensively, Julie’n Davenport is still getting some sixth offensive tackle snaps. It’s a very sweet and nice way to slowly bring him along from the Patriot League to the NFL. 67% Lamar Miller to 35% D’Onta Foreman is a great ratio. Bill O’Brien...

You have to learn to not think about them no matter how casually they come slithering inside your head, to not sit in the residue of memories that once occurred, to not go back and place your feet in Earth that already has your impressions.

Hair of the Dog (Browns/Texans): Bull Bites Dog

The BRB gang get together to talk about the first of two back-to-back bye weeks the Texans get. There are some games the Texans have played where I end up imagining what that game feels like in me-related terms (because let’s not forget, I am the center of the universe. Why? Because I have the gravitational pull to make that claim). For example, the SNF game a week ago felt like the football equivalent of Sarajevo in the early-to-mid 90s. Today’s game was not that. Today’s game felt like I barely had to watch because it was going to be a breeze, the first of two Texans bye...

The Houston Texans had a lot of positives against a hopeless Cleveland Browns team but a key component was the success of rookie defensive tackle Carlos Watkins.

The Texans stroll to victory in a one-sided affair against the Browns.

The Texans’ offense continued to impress early with Deshaun Watson connecting with Will Fuller on a 39 yard scoring strike. The Texans were helped in part by Kevin Hogan committing a slew of turnovers, one of which was returned by Johnathan Joseph for a touchdown. The Texans continued to put on pressure on the Browns, with Dylan Cole intercepting Hogan on Cleveland’s next...
