James Harrison may be known for helmet-to-helmet shots, but Houston Texans Bryan Braman has already proven to be the leader in the metal-to-skull shots. Even Owen Schmidt has to say that is one crazy son of a *****. Good hing for the undrafted rookie, Braman, he has earned a name or a niche around the NFL. That usually means you get an extension on his playing career, at least as a special teams helmetless line-gunner.

Roger Goodell to fine a referee just in case he can't fine Braman.


Texans Bryan Braman's helmet-less tackle

The Houston Texans had the AFC South division clinched, so their playoff fate was pretty much sealed. They were penciled in as the #3 seed in the AFC and were hosting a playoff game next week despite the outcome of today's tilt with the Tennessee Titans. Apparently Texans rookie linebacker Bryan Braman didn't get that memo. But hey, when you are an undrafted rookie out...

Texans Linebacker Bryan Braman Loses Helmet, Still Crazily Lowers Head While Making Tackle (Video)

If there's one thing that we can take away from Sunday's Texans-Titans game, it's that Bryan Braman is a mad man. Braman lost his helmet while covering a punt in the first quarter, but the Houston linebacker didn't let it stop him from making a play. Braman continued to pursue Marc Mariani, and he eventually tracked him down. Rather than going low or simply pushing...

Texans Rookie Bryan Braman Makes Vicious Tackle Without Helmet (Video)

Normally, when we show big NFL hits on Outside the Boxscore, they are usually wearing a helmet. However in the case of Texans rookie Bryan Braman on special teams against the Tennessee Titans, he made the big hit without one: 

James Harrison’s Record Sack Streak Ends at 3 Seasons

Steelers Linebacker James Harrison had his streak snapped against the Browns.  Harrison was in need of one sack to extend his Steelers Record Streak to 4 years of consecutive double digit sack seasons.  He did not record a sack in the game and finished the season with nine.  That means he tied LaMarr Woodley for the team lead.  Both guys were achieving the streak together and...

Bryan Braman Goes Head Hunting

Houston Texans rookie linebacker made one of the top plays of the year for the Texans with no helmet. He tackled Tennessee Titans punt returner Marc Mariani without a helmet, call it crazy it shows the Texans are willing to do anything to win a game, enjoy.

So, what’s the rule on exposed human head-to-helmet hits?

Bryan Braman of the Houston Texans is an undrafted rookie free agent special teams player. I'm assuming he's aware of the ongoing discussion of the dangers of helmet-to-helmet hits. I'm also assuming, based on what you're about to see below, that he just doesn't care. That's not a helmet-to-helmet hit, that's a player intentionally ramming his head, unprotected...

Helmet-To-Helmet Tackles Are Especially Painful If You're Not Wearing A Helmet

Forgive Houston's Bryan Braman for trying to make an impact on the game and impress the Texans coaching staff, but the undrafted rookie from West Texas A & M ended up making an impression on his skull via impact with the helmet of Titans punt returner Marc Mariani. Top that, James Harrison. [CBS] More »
