It’s mostly been a forgettable night for the Texans, but DeAndre Hopkins added some sparkle to the festivities with an incredible circus catch that held up after the mandatory video review. Congratulations, everyone, you have a new “tale of the glories” to tell at Christmases long to come. Imagine what Hopkins could…
On Oct. 29, the Houston Texans lost to the Seattle Seahawks, 41-38, a hard-fought game in which rookie QB Deshaun Watson put on an entertaining, four-touchdown, 403-yard performance. Houston was 3-4 but still sat at the edge of the playoff hunt in a weak conference, and Watson had led the offense to close games…
Houston Texans quarterback Tom Savage returned to the field for a series after taking what looked like a truly damaging hit from the 49ers’ Elvis Dumervil. After getting knocked over in his own end zone, Savage stayed on the ground with his hands shaking before being helped up.
Tom Savage, you just quarterbacked the Texans to their seventh loss and turned the ball over three more times, including your weekly strip-sack. What do you have to say about it?
Welcome to Bad Quarterback Performance Of The Week, a recurring feature in which we celebrate the worst quarterback play the NFL has to offer.
More bad NFL injury news came today, this time in Houston. According to Ian Rapoport, rookie QB Deshaun Watson may have suffered a torn ACL on a non-contact injury in practice this afternoon.
Just after Duane Brown ended a months-long holdout over a contract dispute, the Texans have reportedly traded the left tackle to the Seahawks for cornerback Jeremy Lane and two draft picks, a 2018 fifth-rounder and 2019 second-rounder.
In an extravagant game filled with 988 yards of total offense, Seattle’s Russell Wilson found a way to pull his team over the top, completing an 18-yard TD pass to Jimmy Graham with 21 seconds left to give the Seahawks a 41-38 win over the Texans.
Almost the entire Houston Texans team took a knee during the national anthem before today’s game against Seattle, following the publication of Texans owner Bob McNair’s “inmates” comments in an ESPN story Friday.
Texans owner Bob McNair, several days into the deep shit of consequences for his now-infamous “inmates run the prison” comment from league meetings, has issued a new statement today, with a new and dubious explanation for how he got into this mess:
Houston Texans owner Bob McNair compared NFL players, who are employees and free men, to prison inmates during last week’s league meetings. (The exact wording, as McNair argued for banning players from protesting during the anthem: “We can’t have the inmates running the prison.”) According to various reports, the…
For the second straight week, Texans QB Deshaun Watson tied the NFL rookie record by being responsible for five touchdowns. Even though Houston lost to the Chiefs, 42-34, and some of Watson’s scoring came in garbage time, the QB still looked a hell of a lot better than Tom Savage.
J.J. Watt tripped over himself early in tonight’s Chiefs-Texans game, leading the defensive end and hero fundraiser to collapse on-field, be helped off it, and eventually be carted to the locker room.
When the NFL season got off to an ugly-ass start, the diagnoses came quickly and confidently: a lack of good quarterbacks, fewer quality offensive linemen emerging from the college ranks, reductions in offseason practice time and padded practices, defenses that are catching up. None of these root causes was wrong,…
National anthem demonstrations became the story at NFL stadiums around the country on Sunday. But at Texans-Patriots in Foxboro, Mass., at Dolphins-Jets in East Rutherford, N.J., and at Raiders-Washington in Landover, Md.,* the players who protested were met with jeers and boos from thousands of fans who briefly…
For most defensive linemen, an interception return is a recipe for some hilarious slapstick, but Jadeveon Clowney sprints right past all your #fatguyTD jokes. In the second quarter of the Texans game against the Patriots, a blind-side hit on Tom Brady turned into a gift for Clowney, who swiftly took the ball back for…
Fans in Houston watching last night’s Texans-Bengals game on KPRC missed its wacky final play—one punctuated by local hero J.J. Watt demolishing a poor offensive lineman—because the NBC station cut off the end of the broadcast in a rush to report the game’s not-yet-final score.
Tonight’s Thursday Night Football game between the Texans and Bengals was, with a few exceptions, your typical awful weeknight NFL action. The Aussie rules-style final play, and its equally down-under level game-ending tackle by J.J. Watt, though, deserved our closer attention.
