The Houston Texans are set to travel up to Foxborough to take on the New England Patriots in the final game of the NFL's Divisional round. Heading into their game on Sunday, both the Texans and Patriots are relatively healthy.
For the Texans, the only player that sat out of practice on Wednesday, defensive back Alan Ball, returned to practice on Thursday, although, he was limited with a foot injury. Most players practiced fully, with an exception of a few, including tight end Owen Daniels and guard Antoine Caldwell.

Thursday, Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt was named Defensive MVP by Pro Football Weekly/Professional Football Writers of America.
“It’s an honor,” Watt said via the Houston Chronicle. “I appreciate everybody voting for me. It’s more an award for my teammates and coaches. I really appreciate everything they do for me. I wouldn’t be able to do this without them...
The Texans were my preseason pick for the Super Bowl. By mid season I was looking pretty good with that pick. Since then, it hasn't looked good for the Texans.
The Wildcard round brought us some pretty bad games. The marque quarterbacks were on a bye so this week should be a lot better.
Here are the quarterbacks and how they stack-up
1) Manning - Peyton Manning...
Kashif Moore was recently signed to the practice squad by the Houston Texans. He was an undrafted rookie out of Connecticut who has tremendous speed (4.32 /40) and great leaping ability (43.5 vertical). Moore, at 5’9 180 lbs, is projected as kick returner or possible slot receiver. He was with the Cincinnati Bengals but was cut and later awarded to the Indianapolis Colts on waivers...
Texans tight end Garrett Graham was limited in practice on Wednesday after suffering a concussion on Saturday against the Cincinnati Bengals. He could play Sunday in the Divisional Round at New England if he passes league concussion testing protocols.
The fact that he practiced on Wednesday is surely an encouraging sign for the Texans, who like to use Graham, tight end Owen Daniels...
Leading into the Houston - New England Matchup, the entire Texans team is singing the praises of their star running back Arian Foster. The only issue? He managed less than 50 yards rushing in his last matchup vs the Patriots
Schaub will need to play better to earn a Texan victory
As if the Houston Texans needed additional motivation to avenge for their embarrassing performance on Monday Night Football in Week 14, Dan Shaughnessy laid it up on a silver platter. Characterizing this divisional round rematch as another bye week is bold, but that is the world we live in — the digital age. Everybody has...
The Texans were embarrassed by the Patriots on MNF, will the same this happen this weekend?
The Wildcard games disappointed for one reason, quarterback play. That will not be a problem this weekend. The marquee quarterbacks are off their bye weeks and are ready to lead their teams onto the field.
Here is a look at the games and my selection of the winners.
So today, this douchebag from Houston, came out with an anti-Shaughnessy column, which they picked up on at CSNNE. So, we are going to go through this column and see what I have to say to this idiot.Houston we have a problem . . .A NEEDING-TO-BUY-SUPER-BOWL-TICKETS PROBLEM!The 2012-13 Houston Texans have been waiting all season for this moment, and their master plan has finally fallen...

Wow, even the Patriots marketing department knows that Texans’ quarterback Matt Schaub looks like a “deer in the headlights”. Actually forget the headlights, the signal caller for Houston looks like a deer head mounted on the wall after his shellacking at the hands of the Patriots in December.
Since that beat-down, the Texans have gone 2-3 including...
Two years ago, this was the scene in Foxboro after a Patriots playoff loss at home
The New England Patriots seem to be in the driver seat entering their first game of the 2013 NFL playoffs. Just over a month ago, the New England Patriots played a regular season game against their opponent, the Houston Texans and won the game 42-14. In that game, the Texans were exposed against the...
Houston Texans (13-4) at New England Patriots (12-4)
Game Day: Sunday 4:30 p.m. ET, CBS
Line: Patriots -10
Series Record: New England leads 3-1 (1-0 this season)
Just one brief month ago, the Houston Texans were widely considered the best team in the NFL. Sporting a dazzling 11-1 record and clad with snazzy new letterman jackets to combat the brutal 60 degree New England winter...
Both the Houston Texans and New England Patriots are determined to keep their playoff hopes alive and reach the AFC Title game.
The Texans won their second consecutive playoff game and snapped their two game losing streak with their 19-13 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday. The defense played lights out, while the offense moved the ball but struggled in the red zone. This win earns the Texans a ticket to play the New England Patriots and hopefully avenge the beatdown the Patriots laid on them in...
