IT was a rough one in Baltimore for the Houston Texans, but that doesn’t mean there weren’t some positives. The Texans are just getting started and still getting all their players healthy. We take a look at our players of the game for the Baltimore Ravens.   Houston Texans Offensive POG: Arian Foster It was not a huge game from Foster, but go back and watch the way he ran against Baltimore. It’s starting to look like Ben Tate’s increase in carries has Foster reaching for every inch of talent he’s capable of displaying. If Foster keeps running the way he did against the Ravens, coach Kubiak is going to need to call his number even more and depend on the better running back of the two in Foster.   Houston Texans Defensive POG: J.J. Watt With 9 solo tackles, 3 assists, one sack, and one pass deflection, Watt kept himself involved in the entire game as a difference maker. It will be interesting to see if in fact Watt can live up to his 20, 20, 20, proposition that he made before the season. At this rate it’s looking like a good possibility with his current start to the season.   Houston Texans Special Teams POG: Randy Bullock Bullock silenced his doubters with a solid performance against the Ravens. When you ask your red shirt rookie kicker to try to make three field goals of 50+ he is going to miss some. Although Bullock’s longest kick made was 47 yards, he was our source of points and gave the Texans the little hope they held onto in Baltimore. Randy Bullock is going to be a fine kicker, expect great things from him this season.
