Familiar defensive faces made return last Sunday for the Houston Texans

Last weekend’s victory over the Baltimore Ravens left many fans with plenty to be optimistic about.

Andre Johnson is still capable of a big game. He has seventeen catches for 161 yards in his past two games. With just one 100-yard game and two touchdowns on the year, he isn’t putting up the numbers that you’d expect from an elite receiver. Has he lost that title?. He is only 31, but has battled his share of injuries. That said, he has remained healthy this year and the bye...

But even more so, with a 43-13 rout of the Ravens, the Texans firmly asserted themselves as the best team in the NFL.

Texans enter bye as AFC's best team

HOUSTON (AP) -- The Texans needed a win over Baltimore to enter their bye with the AFC's best record. The lopsided victory gave them that, and clearly separated them from the second-place Ravens and the rest of the conference. Still, the Texans (6-1) know they can't be too impressed with what they've accomplished so far. "You can't look at the big picture...

The Houston Texans hosted the Baltimore Ravens in a game that had immediate and future implications on the seating in the AFC. In this game, both teams were playing for the top seed in the AFC.

Houston Texans: Week 8 NFL Power Rankings (#2)

Last week: 2 (+0) Record: 6-1 I thought about moving Houston back up into the #1 spot, but let’s see how good the Ravens actually are first. If they’re as bad as the Texans made them look, then that’s not as impressive of a win and the Texans’ struggles with the only good NFC team [...]

Depth Chart Digging: Week Eight

Don't Forsett About MePhoto Credit: John Martinez Pavliga First off I would like to say that Andrew Luck should now be considered a running back in standard fantasy leagues.
