The Pass Catchers Grades
Andre Johnson: Just having Johnson on the field has made the Texans so much more of a complete team, and throw in the respect teams have for him, he still remains one of the top targets in the AFC. Johnson was not targeted often early in the season but he has been a main staple of the offensive game plan the past three weeks. If you watch what defenses do to contain him, they rarely leave a corner back by himself without help over the top from a safety. He still looks like he may be trying to trust his body at times, but he looked a little stronger against the Buffalo Bills breaking tackles and getting up field with the football. The next eight games could be exciting to watch and we have a feeling that Johnson will be an even...

The Offensive Line Grades
Duane Brown: He gave up his first sack of the season against the Buffalo Bills but he has been as good you can ask an NFL left tackle...
The Houston Texans hosted Mario Williams and the Buffalo Bills at Reliant Stadium in what was called “Judgment Day” by Williams himself. Williams’ game was nothing to ride home about. He lit up the stat sheet with five tackles, two assists, and one sack. He had his best game of the season for his new team against the Texans. Williams wasn’t impactful and Houston moved the...
Mario Williams was a fan favorite during his six years in Houston. To say he has fallen out of favor would be an understatement.
Williams, now a member of the Buffalo Bills, was booed in his return to Houston on Sunday. One could say it was salt on the wound, as the Texans rolled to a 21-9 victory, but Williams was hardly concerned about the less-than-welcoming...

The Headline: Texans corral the Bills for an easy home win
Much had been made about Mario Williams’ return to Houston where he spent the first six years of his career. The split between Williams and the front office was far from amicable by the sounds of it, as they reportedly made no effort to even retain Williams, something which did not...
