PLAYERS: Arian Foster
TEAMS: Houston Texans

(Photo by Bob Levey/Getty Images) Houston once again followed the blueprint that has appeared in three of their four wins this year. That blueprint looks something like this: Get to the opposing quarterback early and often. Spread the ball around on offense. Score at least 27 points by the end of the third quarter. Hold the opposing team to one touchdown through three quarters. Nullify the opposing teams’ best player (see Reggie Bush/MIA, Maurice Jones-Drew/JAX, and Chris Johnson/TEN against Houston). Force at least two momentum-swinging turnovers. Rely on Arian Foster and Ben Tate to close out the game. The Texans did all of this and more against the Titans, and it looked strangel...

J.J. Watt is the best defensive lineman in the NFL

Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt is becoming the best defensive lineman in the NFL in only his second year in the league in 2012. In only 4 weeks of action, Watt has recorded 7.5 sacks and is tied for 1st in total sacks on the AFC. That is an enormous accomplishment for any defensive player, but for a defensive end in the 3-4 defense, that type of impact is amazing. 3-4 defensive...

Houston Texans continue dominance, improve to 4-0 with victory over Tennessee Titans

For the fourth time in as many weeks, the Houston Texans took the field and walked off with a win, this time over divisional rivals the Tennessee Titans. Their current 4-0 record isn’t just the best in Texans’ history, it’s the best in Houston professional football history. The old Houston Oilers never had a start to the season like this, and of course neither have the Texans...

Texans prepare for Jets with 1st 4-0 record

The Houston Texans have answered all their skeptics so far with the first 4-0 start in franchise history. Now the task is staying focused as the stakes get higher each week and they prepare for a nationally televised game against the Jets on Monday night. Coach Gary Kubiak isn't worried about his Texans getting caught up in the hype, saying ''they're very mature...

Mucho Frio: Ben Tate

Foster is too good Juan… Ben Tate is running behind arguably the best offensive line in football. He is also running behind arguably the best RB in football. The Texans may be the best team in the NFL with one of the top defensive units, so it would only makes sense that they would run the hell out the ball. Tate has been pushed as a good flex option on most weeks, but that has...

Houston Texans Season Analysis – First Quarter

The beginning to the Houston Texans season has been perfect in the win-loss department, but not perfect overall. They’re a team that is finally gaining national recognition as a legit Super Bowl contender and in many cases, the best team in the NFL through four weeks. But as anybody can tell you, it’s not about where you are as a team in September and early October, but rather...

Report: Texans claim Titans' Stewart plays dirty

Members of the Houston Texans accused Tennessee Titans tackle David Stewart of employing some dirty tactics during their game on Sunday, including pulling the hair of Houston linebacker Brooks Reed, the Houston Chronicle reported.

Titans fear Jake Locker’s shoulder seperation is worse then thought

Jake Locker’s shoulder separation occurred in Week 1 but the Tennessee Titans have increased their concern after it popped out again this week. Texans safety Glover Quin sacked the second year quarterback early on Sunday putting him out of the game. A MRI is scheduled for Monday and beat reporter Jim Wyatt of the Nashville Tennessean expects Locker to miss time. Mike Munchak, the...

Texans blow out Titans 38-14

The Houston Texans' 38-14 defeat of the Tennessee Titans was not a fun game to watch for two-tone blue fans.  The Texans scored two early touchdowns and cruised from there.   The Titans never really had a chance, which is evident from a few key statistics.   The Titans lost the turnover battle, with three to the Texans' none.  Two of the three Titans turnovers...

Jake Locker injured, leaves game in pain

Tennessee Titan’s quarterback Jake Locker left today’s game against the Houston Texans in the first quarter with an apparent shoulder injury. Texans S Glover Quin blitzed off the edge and was unblocked on Locker’s blind side. He put a huge hit on Locker, who was left squirming in pain on the field and was quickly escorted to the locker room for testing. He couldn’t move his...

Texans top new NFL power rankings

With the season now 1/4 over with, there has been no lack of excitement and upsets through the first four weeks of 2012. Houston has clearly established themselves as perhaps the most well-rounded team in the NFL. Boasting a ferocious pass rush led by second-year defensive end J.J. Watt (league-leading 7.5 sacks), the Texans are also strong against the run. Offensively, the team...

The Rundown: Titans Edition

It is still hard to believe that we would say, at any point, that the Houston Texans are 4-0, even after they beat the Tennessee Titans 38-14. The Texans fell flat for a short time in the first half when the score was 14-7 going into halftime, but thanks to Titans right tackle David Stewart he woke up the defense in a big way. Stewart pulled Brooks Reed‘s hair, threw a hay maker...
