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...

Thursday Night Football: Andy Dalton

Prior to the start of the new league year in March, NFL teams make out their free agent wish list and check it twice. Some teams must make tough decisions on their own free agents, while others are looking to upgrade the talent on their roster....

It wouldn't be hyperbole to say that a Texans victory on Saturday night in Foxborough would be one of the biggest upsets in NFL playoff history. Of course, the Patriots being favorites in a playoff game is nothing new, especially at home where...
