Houston Texans coach Gary Kubiak said he is sticking with rookie quarterback T.J. Yates as his starter. The Texans (10-5), who have already wrapped up the AFC South Division title, have dropped back-to-back games, including a last-minute 19-16 loss at Indianapolis on Thursday night. Yates was thrust into the lineup after starter Matt Schaub and backup Matt Leinart were lost for the season to injuries in consecutive weeks. With standout wide receiver Andre Johnson sidelined by a hamstring injury, Yates has run a conservative offense. He was 13 of 16 for 132 yards in Thursday's game. “He did some good things last night," Kubiak said. "You complete 13 out of 16 throws in this league, you’re doing something right. “The issue last night, we didn’t protect him very well and gave up four sacks in 16 throws. That’s about as poor as it gets, so we better address that first as we keep moving him forward." The Texans signed veterans Jake Delhomme and Jeff Garcia after t...

Kubiak asking for more from offense

Texans coach Gary Kubiak said Monday that T.J. Yates will continue as the team's starting quarterback, although the coach acknowledged that there is plenty of work to do on the offensive side of the ball if his team is to be playoff-ready. And Kubiak also expressed concern that, in back to back weeks, the defense has struggled in the fourth quarter. "That's two weeks...

The Houston Texans should run over the Indianapolis Colts this evening

As we start Week 16 of the NFL season, we now get the final Thursday night game of the regular season with the Houston Texans visiting the Indianapolis Colts. This really should not be much of a game with the high powered rushing attack of the Houston Texans likely to run over the porous run defense of the Indianapolis Colts this evening. Yes, the Colts logged their...

Take it to the Bank, Week 16

MIKE KAYE Season: 140-72 (66%) /  Last Week: 8-7 (53%) /  Scott’s Pick: 4-9-1 (0-1) My poor, poor T.J. Yates. Apparently there is a Take it to the Bank curse. Anyway, the season is literally in the home stretch with 11 of 12 the playoff spots possibly being decided this weekend. We had quite the head-turning Week 16 and the spoilers could be out in full force as the Colts proved...

Flanny's and Steve's picks and points: Week 16

Last week straight up: 9-7Season straight up: 143-81Last week vs. spread: 12-4Seasons vs. spread: 119-102-3 TEXANS (-6 12) AT COLTS (Thursday night) T.J. Yates will try to bounce back after a poor outing last week. But it won't be easy. The Colts are playing better, and though they have nothing to play for, I'm suggesting theyll make it two straight. Colts 27, Texans...

Week 16 Fantasy Football Preview: Texans vs. Colts

Houston @ Indianapolis   Seriously, this is the best the NFL network could come up with?  I hope they strongly consider flex scheduling next year because of this kind of ugliness.  The Texans clinched the AFC South two weeks ago, and then summarily laid a fat egg last week against the Carolina Panthers, at home no less.  The Colts on the other hand decided they can still get...
