Thursday Night Football Live: Chiefs vs. Raiders

Thursday Night Football Live: Chiefs vs. Raiders

The Chiefs go up against their AFC West rivals in Oakland tonight. Tonight’s tilt pits one of the best teams so far this season (the Chiefs) against one of the season’s more disappointing teams in the Raiders. Oakland has been stifled by the reoccurring injuries to starting QB Derek Carr and a tough schedule that has featured both the Ravens and the Broncos’ excellent defenses. The Chiefs, meanwhile, have been nothing but spectacular with a dynamic offense that’s spearheaded by speedster Tyreek Hill, rookie sensation Kareem Hunt, and the steady Alex Smith. For the Chiefs, this...

Fantasy Flex: Week Seven

A look at some of the top fantasy football options to start or sit this weekend! As your perfect and beautiful Houston Texans relax during a well earned bye week, let’s turn our attention to fantasy football. In week seven, we see a bit of a break as far as playmakers on bye, with only two teams sitting out this week. But injuries have still ravaged the league (and the waiver wire) and setting your lineup moving forward could prove a big challenge. Houston boasts several big-time starters, including Deshaun Watson, DeAndre Hopkins, Lamar Miller, Will Fuller and the defense to name a few....

2017 Fantasy Football: The All Murder Team

2017 Fantasy Football: The All Murder Team

A look at the players who have killed the most fantasy football teams this season. Before I could hate fantasy football in a much simpler way. I would pickup players that always ended up being crappy, scramble around Sunday mornings to set lineups only to lose because of these split coffee decisions, sit through conversations regarding sleepers, and miss one or two early draft picks that would dismantle my team, all in the name of easy conversation and that end of summer draft party. It was the cost of being a social football fan in the postmodern age. This cost is now coupled with an...

What’s The One Move The Texans Didn’t Make Last Offseason You Wish They Would Have Made?

What’s The One Move The Texans Didn’t Make Last Offseason You Wish They Would Have Made?

Texans fans answer that question during the team’s bye week. Your Houston Texans are off this week, which means this is a fine time for a sponsored post to take stock and reflect. In that spirit, I ask you, gentle Texans fan: What is the one move the Texans did (or didn’t) make this past offseason that you wish they would have made (or wouldn’t have made)? I reckon many of you immediately shouted “RE-SIGN A.J. BOUYE!” in response to that query. Valid. Bouye was a revelation last year, and the Texans chose to neither sign him to a long-term deal nor utilize the franchise tag to...

Dare To Compare: Deshaun Watson and Russell Wilson’s First Six Games

Dare To Compare: Deshaun Watson and Russell Wilson’s First Six Games

Observations about Watson’s first six games draw comparisons to the Seahawks QB’s early performances in the NFL. Through the first six games of both Deshaun Watson’s and Russell Wilson’s careers, they had taken over their respective franchise’s reigns at quarterback and redirected the team’s path. In 2012, Russell Wilson beat out Matt Flynn and Tarvaris Jackson in a three quarterback competition in the preseason. He transformed a 7-9 team the year before into an 11-5 team and took them to the divisional round of the NFL Playoffs. Wilson’s ability to extend plays gave the...

The Film Room: Will Fuller V Touchdown Receptions

The Film Room: Will Fuller V Touchdown Receptions

All Will Fuller V does is catch touchdown passes. Last season we all had so much fun during those first four weeks of Will Fuller V. He was a scratch off ticket tied to a rocket ship at the start of his rookie season. He caught 19 of his 36 targets for 316 yards and 2 touchdowns, and returned a punt for a touchdown that beat the Titans and kind of won the AFC South. He had two games where he averaged more than 20 yards a reception. But the good times just don’t last, they never last, and after those first four games he became an afterthought. Teams played two safeties deep. [Name...

2017 NFL Power Rankings (Week 7): Bye Week Battle for Position

Where do the Texans stand going into the bye? After a win against the Browns in which the Texans scored more than 30 points in their fourth consecutive game, the Texans head into their bye in unfamiliar territory, a Top 2 scoring offense. Their offensive skills lead by passing touchdown leader Deshaun Watson warrants high marks in the Power Rankings, but it has not been forgotten that this team has not been bit by the injury bug but completely swallowed by it. No J.J. Watt, no Whitney Mercilus for the year, and Kevin Johnson and Dylan Cole are out for a couple weeks. This is a different...

The Film Room: How The Packers Are Reinventing Pass Protection

With a special cameo appearance by Kendall Lamm. Last week’s episode of “The Film Room” went live late on Friday afternoon, and while it was not specifically Texans related, it did address a problem that the entire NFL is struggling with - pass protection. Houston’s offensive line has been much maligned this season, and deservedly so, but the issues that have plagued this team are not just about talent; they’re about technique as well. The Green Bay Packers are attempting to stem the tide of league-wide offensive line regression, however, by innovating and evolving the way that...

Watson has 12 passing touchdowns in the past three games, the most in league annals by a rookie in any three-game span.
