Houston Texans 2016 Team Preview and Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 8 months 2 weeks ago
Overcoming a 2–5 start, finishing 9-7 and winning the AFC South was not enough for the Texans in Bill O’Brien’s second season. Getting embarrassed by Kansas City 30-0 at home in the AFC Wild Card game convinced O’Brien and general manager Rick Smith that changing the complexion of the offense was vital. With a J.J. Watt-ignited defense ranking third in the NFL and...

By Mark Ross, 8 months 2 weeks ago
The calendar has turned to July, which means it’s almost time for the NFL to get back to business. The regular season doesn’t start until Sept. 8, but teams will open training camp later this month, officially starting the path for what eventually will lead to Super Bowl LI in NRG Stadium in Houston on Feb. 5, 2017.   NFL fans will get the chance to see the 2016 edition of...

J.J. Watt Is Pretty Fly For A Big Guy

By Nathan Rush, 10 months 3 days ago
J.J. Watt, 27, is 6’5” and 290 pounds, with 34” arms and shoulders as wide as his summer cabin in Wisconsin. But when he’s not lifting weights or crushing quarterbacks, the Houston Texans D-lineman and three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year is a pretty stylish guy. We chased down Watt to talk about what he wears after he takes off his football pads for the offseason...

AFC Wild Card Preview and Prediction: Kansas City Chiefs vs. Houston Texans

By Jake Rose, 1 year 2 months ago
How in the world did two teams that started their seasons 2-5 and 1-5 make it to the AFC Wild Card Round of the NFL playoffs? I’ll tell you how in two words: coaching and defense. The coaching jobs that the Texans’ Bill O’Brien and Chiefs’ Andy Reid have done this season are nothing short of minor football miracles. One couldn’t help but feel for O’Brien...

Houston Texans vs. Tennessee Titans Preview and Prediction

By Jake Rose, 1 year 2 months ago
Former Dallas Cowboys’ backup quarterback Brandon Weeden was being funny when he responded to a question about the possibility of filling for Tony Romo when he said, “God forbid I am forced to play.” That was in August, during training camp, before Weeden actually did play for an injured Romo, and before Weeden was released by the Cowboys and signed by the Houston Texans....

Houston Texans vs. Indianapolis Colts Preview and Prediction

By Jake Rose, 1 year 3 months ago
Prepare yourselves, football fans. Sunday could get ugly. Not ugly in the sense that the game between the Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts will be a battle of two unstoppable forces, but ugly in the fact that it could be a repulsive brand of football between two marginal teams. Both the Texans and Colts are fighting for AFC South supremacy with mediocre-at-best football teams and sub-...

New England Patriots vs. Houston Texans Preview and Prediction

By Mike Dussault, 1 year 3 months ago
The 10-2 New England Patriots travel to Houston to take on the 6-6 Texans in a game featuring a number of former Patriots players and coaches now on the opposing sideline. Aside from those connections, this is a game both teams will badly want. Houston is fighting for its playoff lives, while the Patriots have lost two straight and slipped from the top AFC seed all the way to third, which would...

Houston Texans vs. Buffalo Bills Preview and Prediction

By Jake Rose, 1 year 3 months ago
A month ago, Bill O’Brien and the Houston Texans were in shambles. The Texans were sitting at 2-5 after getting absolutely dismantled by the now corroded Miami Dolphins. What was supposed to be the Texans’ backbone, the defense, surrendered 509 total yards and 44 points to Ryan Tannehill and the Dolphins.  Yes, that Ryan Tannehill — you know, the one that has only...

This also can lead to some very tough decisions to make regarding your starting lineup. ...
