Fantasy Football Champs:
The Texans were mauled by the Panthers 28-13 at Reliant Stadium.
Quarterback T.J. Yates was coming off his first career 300-yard performance, but lost momentum today as he completed 19 of 30 passes for 212 yards, with zero touchdowns against two costly interceptions. Stud running back Arian Foster took care of business for fantasy owners though, as he bruised his way to 109 yards and a touchdown on 16 totes, to go along with five catches for 58 receiving yards. Tight end Owen Daniels was held to 29 yards on two catches while coming off a 100-yard performance vs. Cincinnati, and veteran receiver Kevin Walter was also a nonfactor with two catches for 26 yards.

If the Texans lose in the playoffs, we now know what it will look like. Sunday showed us that.
Quarterback T.J. Yates' performance Sunday was disappointing, but inevitable, and as far as we know he might do it again this week. He might do it in the playoffs. He might not, of course, but odds are Yates has not gotten all the rookie beaten out of him in three starts.
HOUSTON (AP) -- T.J. Yates led kids on a shopping spree around a sporting goods store this week as a pack of cameramen recorded his every move. Nearby, at the Houston Texans' merchandise store, patrons asked clerks when the "Yates" jerseys would hit the racks.

Houston rookie quarterback T.J. Yates looked to be well on his way to orchestrating another improbable comeback.
Instead, the fifth-round pick made the kind of mistake he'd avoided in his first two starts and it dearly cost the AFC South leaders in a 28-13 loss to the Carolina Panthers, ending the Texans' seven-game winning streak.

Watching today’s game in which the Carolina Panthers manhandled the buffoonish Houston Texans was rather painful. It seemed as if T.J. Yates regressed to his college days while the defense took a day off. Apparently Ben Tate did not get the memo that he was a power rusher either as he continually got stuffed in the run game.
Arian Foster was, perhaps, the lone bright light for...
Well, that was totally unsurprising. I fully expected the letdown part, but did not expect that the Texans wouldn’t respond in the second half. That part was a surprise.
Houston was faced with a brutal truth on Sunday. A truth that we were all expecting to be told at some point. TJ Yates played like a rookie. He completely overlooked receivers as they ran free through the...
Fresh off their first win of the season, the 1-13 Colts take on the Houston Texans on Thursday night. The Texans, top dogs in the AFC South, are coming loaded with plenty of weapons, too, in Arian Foster and T.J. Yates. And the Colts? Well, ...
