State of the Texans:
Green Bay Packers
In an impressive bounce back game, the Houston Texans finally defeated the Baltimore Ravens for the first time in franchise history with a score of 43-13. The defense looked like their old self, while the offense took to the air to rack up yards against a depleted Ravens team.
Head Coach Gary Kubiak showed some determination by not letting off the gas and kept pounding the football against the Ravens to nail this victory home and take sole possession of the AFC conference for their own. The Texans upped their season record to 6-1 and took a strangle hold of the AFC South in the process.
The Texans are hitting the bye week at a good point of the season and it will be there to give the team one last breath of fresh air before the run to week 17.
Let’s take a look.

Talk about an important game on the heels of what people are calling a wake up call after the Sunday night debacle for the Houston Texans. The Achilles heel of the Texans of the past few seasons are coming to town in the Baltimore Ravens. This game is important on so many levels in that the Texans need to show themselves that last week’s loss was a bump in the road and they can...
If you haven't heard the hype over Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt yet, you probably don't watch football much. Watt already has 34 tackles and 9.5 sacks after week 7 this year. Absolutely huge numbers to go along with a huge frame. The guy is just a beast, it's a strait up fact.
Along with his numbers, he also provides the Texans with some good laughs...

J.J. Watt was mic’d up for last Sunday’s Texans-Ravens game, and he got off one of the funniest trash talk lines we’ve ever heard. During ESPN’s halftime segment on Monday Night Football called “Soundtracks,” the Texans star defensive end was seen saying, “I’ve eaten burritos bigger than you,” to Rice. The line was so funny it even appeared to make one of the Ravens...
Sunday’s contest between the Houston Texans and Baltimore Ravens was billed as a likely AFC Championship Game preview. If that is so, fans in Houston must be dancing today. From about the eight minute mark in the first quarter, this one was all Texans as they cruised to a thirty point thrashing of the Ravens; their first win over Baltimore in franchise history.
A week after...
Terrell Suggs has already been a bigger factor in Baltimore’s defense than anyone had reason to expect. in the first half in Houston, he notched a sack. He played in a large share of the defensive snaps and has ever been playing pass coverage. With Haloti Ngata having left, Suggs might be just about all Baltimore has left in its once-exalted defense.
With way too much dependent...
