DeAndre Hopkins Is The NFL's Hardest-Working Receiver

Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins only caught six balls for 50 yards during yesterday’s blowout loss against the Dolphins. Normally, that’s the kind of stat line you’d expect a No. 1 receiver with a bad quarterback to put up in a game where the entire team fell apart around him.

The Texans Will Finally Ditch Their Death-Trap Grass

Houston’s NRG Stadium has turf unlike anywhere else in the NFL: it is natural grass, that, when not in use, is sliced up into 8’x 8’ trays and taken out of the dome to get some sunlight. It has been by all accounts the NFL’s worst playing surface, with the lawyer of one former players suing over a career-ending injury… »9/18/15 1:50pm9/18/15 1:50pm

Texans Coach Refuses To Reveal Which Bad Quarterback He Will Start

Houston Texans head coach Bill O’Brien has to decide whether he will start Brian Hoyer or Ryan Mallett at quarterback this Sunday. Both played okay in Week 1, but neither are good enough to make the decision one that really matters.
