Monday Night Football: Houston Texans vs. Baltimore Ravens Preview and Prediction

By Jake Rose, 4 months 3 weeks ago
At this point it doesn’t matter how it happens, as long as our team wins. That has to be the mindset of both Bill O’Brien and John Harbaugh, two coaches of two separate but equally flawed teams, in the midst of a playoff shuffle. The Ravens (5-5), with no offense to be found, rely solely on their defense, led by future Hall of Fame linebacker Terrell Suggs and blooming superstar...

Houston Texans vs. Los Angeles Rams Preview and Prediction

By Jake Rose, 5 months 1 week ago
Before tearing his ACL in practice last week, Houston quarterback Deshaun Watson was the NFL’s top story. The first-round pick from Clemson was in the midst of a Rookie of the Year campaign and was poised to lead the Texans to back-to-back AFC South titles. But as reigning Grammy Country Album of the Year winner Sturgill Simpson sings, “life ain’t fair and the world is mean....

Houston Texans vs. Seattle Seahawks Preview and Prediction

By Scott Whittum, 5 months 3 weeks ago
Football fans are going to be in for a treat on Sunday afternoon watching quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Deshaun Watson face off at CenturyLink Field as the Seattle Seahawks (4-2) host the Houston Texans (3-3). These two teams last met back in 2013 in Houston, where the Seahawks rallied from a 20-3 deficit to beat the Texans by a score of 23-20. Seattle leads the all-time series 2-1.  ...

Sunday Night Football: Kansas City Chiefs vs. Houston Texans Preview and Prediction

By Jake Rose, 6 months 2 weeks ago
Heed my warning. Don’t even bother looking at the rest of the NFL schedule this week.   Unless you’re some sort of die-hard fan or an extreme football masochist, there is no reason to watch the Jets-Browns, Chargers-Giants, Vikings-Bears or 49ers-Colts. Trust me, save yourself.   There isn’t a matchup worth flipping the tube on for until Al Michaels and Chris...

Houston Texans vs. New England Patriots Preview and Prediction

By Matt Josephs, 7 months 2 days ago
The Patriots and Texans picked up victories in Week 2, although they did so in different ways. Houston went on the road to play the Bengals and beat them 13-9 on Thursday night. It was hardly an offensive explosion, but rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson did just enough to move the team in the right direction. He had two big runs, including the only touchdown of the contest last Thursday night....

Thursday Night Football: Houston Texans vs. Cincinnati Bengals Preview and Prediction

By John Gworek, 7 months 1 week ago
It’s dangerous to draw too many conclusions from one game. Often it turns out a Week 1 result in the NFL is as much about a team’s opponent as it is about the team itself. Are the Bengals that bad, or are the Ravens that good? Can the Texans really not block anyone, or is the Jaguars' defense better than we thought?   We may get those answers Thursday night in...

Jadeveon Clowney Talks Tostitos, J.J. Watt and South Carolina-Clemson rivalry

By Nathan Rush, 8 months 2 days ago
Houston Texans outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney’s mother, Josenna, worked at the Frito-Lay plant in Charlotte, N.C., for nearly 20 years. She had a good excuse to retire after Jadeveon became the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. But now the Clowneys are back with Frito-Lay, promoting Tostitos’ Lucky Bags. The team-inspired packaging celebrates official traditions of NFL...

NFL Scouts Talk Anonymously About AFC South Teams

By Athlon Sports, 8 months 2 weeks ago
The AFC South is arguably the most wide-open division in the NFL right now. Houston and Tennessee tied for the division lead at 9-7 last season, with the Texans winning the tiebreaker and making the playoffs over the rising Titans.   The Texans dealt Brock Osweiler to Cleveland but traded up to take Deshaun Watson with the 12th overall pick in this year's draft. However, the Titans...

Houston Texans 2017 Team Preview and Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 9 months 2 weeks ago
In Bill O’Brien’s first three seasons, the Texans have been amazingly consistent — three consecutive 9–7 records, including the last two AFC South titles and a playoff victory last year. And they have closed each season going 3–1 down the stretch.   J.J. Watt returns to a defense that ranked first last season, but the Texans lost three starters in free...

5 Ways to Improve the National Football League

By John La Fleur, 10 months 3 days ago
Despite the NFL’s undisputed status as the most dominant professional sports league, it needs some improvement. A few lingering issues still require some resolution. In particular, scheduling, both during the regular season and postseason should be changed. I offer five proposals for changes and explanations for why they are essential.   1. Seed playoffs based on overall records...
