Houston Texans RB Arian Foster should have a huge game against a Bills defense that has yet to stop the run this season.
Fresh off the bye week in what could turn out to be the best season in the history of the team the Houston Texans go up against the Buffalo Bills in the return of the Texans 2006 1st overall pick Mario Williams. Williams who became the highest paid defensive player ever when signing a 6 year contract worth up to 100 million dollars and 50 million of it being guaranteed, making Williams the highest paid defensive player of all time. Even with the addition of Williams the Bills defense still hasn’t become the unit they’d expected to be this year. They’re rank last in the league in points allowed giving on average 32.4 PPG. They allow 176.9 rushing and 247.3 yards passing a game. The Texans will be looking to exploit the Bills defense or lack there of on Sunday in Houston at Reliant Stadium.

Buffalo Bills defensive lineman Mario Williams made his first trip back to Houston to face his former team and said afterward he enjoyed being booed.
Buffalo Bills defensive end Mario Williams did something against the Houston Texans that we have not seen a lot of this season — sacked the opposing quarterback. Williams has not lived up to the $96 million contract the Bills signed him to over the offseason, but recording a sack against the team he spent six seasons with must have been quite gratifying. Williams popped up and...
Mario Williams was a fan favorite during his six years in Houston. To say he has fallen out of favor would be an understatement.
Williams, now a member of the Buffalo Bills, was booed in his return to Houston on Sunday. One could say it was salt on the wound, as the Texans rolled to a 21-9 victory, but Williams was hardly concerned about the less-than-welcoming...

HOUSTON - In a homecoming bloated with rancor and disdain, Bills defensive end Mario Williams enjoyed his one moment in the spotlight with a second-quarter sack of Texans quarterback Matt Schaub and a taunting finger wag at the Texans' bench. That was the most memorable impression former Texans player Williams left on Sunday at Reliant Stadium, a development Texans fans surely...

It explains why Williams had surgery during Buffalo's bye week that ordinarily would sideline players more than one game.
But because Sunday's game is against his former team, the Houston Texans...

The Headline: Texans corral the Bills for an easy home win
Much had been made about Mario Williams’ return to Houston where he spent the first six years of his career. The split between Williams and the front office was far from amicable by the sounds of it, as they reportedly made no effort to even retain Williams, something which did not...
The Buffalo Bills had a much-needed bye week last week to rest up some of their injured players and get them healthy for this week’s matchup against the AFC’s best team, the Houston Texans. The Bills came off a devastating 34-35 loss to the Tennessee Titans at Ralph Wilson Stadium two weeks entering the bye week. A game that, with a win, would have put them in a tie for first...

The Houston Texans are back at the game of football and are heading into the halfway point of the NFL season. The opponent this week is none other than the Buffalo Bills and the return of Mario Williams to Reliant. Williams will take the headlines but there are other Bills’ players that the Texans will need to watch for.
The Bills may be streaky at times but they boast a potent...
Houston Texans' running back Justin Forsett will be the backup for Arian Foster in Week 9 against Buffalo. Ben Tate is not expected to be active due to a hamstring injury.Fantasy Spin:The Bills' run defense is the worst in the league and Arian Foster will likely have a big day, but even in limited attempts, Forsett might have some low-end value.
After getting beat down on national TV by the Packers after their 5-0 start, many began to wonder if the Texans were just flat out frauds. It was a fair argument, honestly, since Green Bay was the first real challenge they faced and they were embarrassed on their home turf. However, the mark of a really good team is how they respond to a defeat like that. And if their answer was...
Frank: 44-13, Houston- I can't even sprinkle any veiled optimism into this one, its going to be ugly. I'm thinking that last year's Dallas game and this year's Jet games will look similar. I can't see any facet of Buffalo's game that can top Houston and I fully expect the media (and blogosphere) to **** all over Mario when he doesn't leave this one with...
On Sunday the Buffalo Bills (3-4) will travel to the No. 1 team in the AFC, the Houston Texans (6-1). Buffalo actually leads the all-time series 2-3 which includes two victories in Houston, but history will not be on the Bills' side.Both teams are coming off of a bye week and in very different shape. Houston trounced Baltimore before the bye, 43-13, and picked up a two-game...
