The Football Fan Spot:
No team is a bigger favorite this week than the Texans, who are 12 point favorites at home over the Miami Dolphins. This is with good reason. The Texans won 10 games and made it to the AFC’s divisional round, despite Andre Johnson missing 9 games and Matt Schaub missing the final 7, including playoffs (they were 8-3 and had the league’s best Pythagorean Expectation when he went down). The Dolphins, meanwhile, won just 6 games last year and are starting a raw quarterback in Ryan Tannehill, who has 19 collegiate starts. They also traded away their only good wide receiver Brandon Marshall this offseason and have some problems on the offensive line. Defensively, they switched schemes to one that several of their key players don’t fit as well (Jared Odrick, Paul Soliai, and possibly Cameron Wake) and traded away their #1 cornerback, Vontae Davis, to the Colts.
However, the Texans could be without 2 key contributors when they face Miami as Arian Foster and Brooks Reed both injured themsel...

The Houston Texans routed the Miami Dolphins 30-10 in NFL week 1 action. Although, no one stood out with a memorable individual performance the Texans overcame a slow start. The defensive line played well, Schaub looked decent in his first start since his foot injury a season ago. Arian Foster only had 79 yards but scored two crucial touchdowns. The Miami Dolphins played well in...
Arian Foster had two touchdown runs, Matt Schaub threw a TD pass to Andre Johnson, and Houston's defense dominated rookie Ryan Tannehill and Miami in the Texans' 30-10 win over the Dolphins on Sunday.
Tannehill threw three interceptions in a stunning 6-minute stretch late in the first half, and the Texans opened impressively in what they believe can be a Super Bowl season...
For the entire summer, a topic that seemed to come up a lot among Texans fans was the idea of trading running back Ben Tate, who almost rushed for 1,000 yards in a backup role last year. Most state the reason because they will lose him for nothing in a couple of years anyway, due to being stuck behind Arian Foster.
On paper, that sounds true, but one has to remember that Tate was...

It's good news/bad news for the Indianapolis Colts after week one of the 2012 season. The bad news is that they dropped a 41-21 decision to the Chicago Bears. The good news is that only one of their divisional rivals, the Houston Texans, scored a victory on Sunday.
Houston stumbled out of the gate against the Miami Dolphins, trailing 3-0 after the first quarter. Then...
