THE GOOD: Houston's OffenseThe Texans scored just one touchdown in Saturday's game, but scored on five different possessions. That tells us that Houston moved the ball consistently all day, and stuck to its game plan: giving the ball to #23.  Arian Foster ran for 140 yards on 32 carries, and scored the only offensive touchdown in the game.  He also added eight grabs for 34 yards.While Matt Schaub wasn't overly impressive, he was certainly good enough, playing an efficient game.  Schaub completed 29 of his 38 passes for 268 yards.  Matt did throw a pick-six, which is the only reason this game was close at all.  But Schaub proved his worth in the clutch.  He made a lot of good decisions, and 13 of his completions went for first downs.  He also completed a game-sealing pass to Garrett Graham on 3rd down.  The Houston Texans got back to doing exactly what they do on Saturday.  If the Texans execute their offense going forward, no one will stop them.  That includes the New En...

Arian Foster uses Boston Globe reporter’s quote as bulletin board material on his Twitter profile

 Houston Texans running back Arian Foster used what Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe wrote as bulletin board material by posting it as a his Twitter profile picture as they get ready to play the Patriots this week. I’m sure this will fire the Texans up a little more.  After getting dismantled by the Patriots earlier in the season, it will be interesting to see how they play...

Schaub takes center stage

The Houston Texans are hosting the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday to begin the NFL playoffs for the second straight year. This time, Matt Schaub will be in the spotlight.

Arian Foster Using Critical Boston Globe Column as Twitter Avatar, Motivation Against Patriots (Photo)

Many NFL pundits aren’t giving the Texans much of a chance in their return trip to New England this weekend, not after stumbling to a 42-14 loss less than a month ago. Texans running back Arian Foster is soaking in all the doubt, though, and using it as motivation for his rematch with the Patriots. Foster, who is very active on social media, changed his Twitter avatar to a photo...

Arian Foster uses Dan Shaughnessy's prediction as motivation

The above is what Texans running back Arian Foster is now using for his Twitter avatar. It is a cut and paste job from the article Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe wrote yesterday in advance of next weekend's AFC playoff game between the Patriots and Texans. Shaughnessy is known for two things: being a troll while offending pretty much everyone, and making grandiose and hyperbolic...

Matt Schaub’s first playoff start a success

In a quarterback-driven world, neither one that started in this battle out-shined the other.Andy Dalton threw for a hapless -6 yards in the first half. (Yes – that is a negative sign, not the en dash that I overuse). Matt Schaub misfired the ball and Leon Hall read the quarterback’s eyes like a comic strip and returned the ball for six points in the 2nd quarter.Both defenses...

Houston beats Bengals in wild-card playoff

HOUSTON (AP) -- Arian Foster ran for 140 yards and a touchdown, and the Houston Texans used a stifling defensive effort for a 19-13 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday in an AFC wild-card playoff game. The Texans will next play at New England on Jan. 13. Foster became the first player in NFL history to have 100-yard games in each of his first three playoff games. The Texans...

Arian Foster Responds To Boston Columnist Ripping “Terrible Texans”

After beating the Bengals 19-13 to open wildcard weekend for the second straight year, the Houston Texans (13-4) head into the divisional round as pretty heavy underdogs to the New England Patriots (12-4). Though head coach Bill Belichick is inevitably sending a message that the 42-14 win in Week 14 means nothing now, Dan Shaughnessy has a different outlook in his column in the...

Bengals lose to Texans 19-13, extend futility

Couldn't stop Arian Foster. Couldn't make that one big play when it was right at their fingertips. And, in an ending so sickeningly familiar, the Bengals couldn't break one of the NFL's longest streaks of playoff futility. Plenty of blame to go around for this one. Andy Dalton overthrew an open A.J. Green in the end zone in the closing minutes, and the Houston Texans...

Vote: Which Texans Player Should the Patriots Be Most Concerned About Stopping?

After a bye week off, the Patriots now know who their divisional round opponent is — and they should seem pretty familiar.

The end result didn’t nearly match the hype, as Tom Brady and...
