State of the Texans:
New England Patriots
After an interesting week leading up to the Wild Card round for the Houston Texans, the Texans were able to keep the Cincinnati Bengals from cutting their season short with a 19-13 victory. With the fans in an uproar after a December to forget, the Texans will be traveling to Foxborough and taking on the New England Patriots in a rematch from week 14′s embarrassment for the Texans.
Despite the negativity surrounding the team, the Texans have a chance to silence all their doubters with the Patriots’ rematch this coming Sunday. The odds are already stacked against the Texans and the national media is making this game all about the Patriots. The best thing for the Texans is the idea that no one is giving them a chance to even be in the same stadium with the home team.
With the upcoming game, there are a few underlying stories that should have the Texans’ attention moving forward.
- The hit that tight end Garret Graham took from Bengal’s linebacker Vontaze Burfict to ice the game may be...

Just in case the Houston Texans needed any more fuel for this weekend's upcoming AFC Divisional playoff game, Boston sports writer Dan Shaughnessy provided them with some.

This year’s NFL breakout star was most definitely J.J. Watt. The Houston Texans defensive star terrorized NFL offenses with his deadly combination of speed and swat-ability. JJ was recently quoted saying: “I’m just trying to find the right girl. I’ll definitely settle down and start a family. That’s who I am. I’m a Midwestern...

As if the Houston Texans needed additional motivation to avenge for their embarrassing performance on Monday Night Football in Week 14, Dan Shaughnessy laid it up on a silver platter. Characterizing this divisional round rematch as another bye week is bold, but that is the world we live in — the digital age. Everybody has...
Do you see random sh$% while driving to work and think it needs to be seen by the masses? Does the guy who sits next to you at work look like a tool on a daily basis?

So today, this douchebag from Houston, came out with an anti-Shaughnessy column, which they picked up on at CSNNE.

The L.A. Lakers continue to disappoint fans, as they have lost 4 in a row for the second time this season.

Many NFL pundits aren’t giving the Texans much of a chance in their return trip to New England this weekend, not after stumbling to a 42-14 loss less than a month ago. Texans running back Arian Foster is soaking in all the doubt, though, and using it as motivation for his rematch with the Patriots.
Foster, who is very active on social media, changed his Twitter avatar to a photo...
After beating the Bengals 19-13 to open wildcard weekend for the second straight year, the Houston Texans (13-4) head into the divisional round as pretty heavy underdogs to the New England Patriots (12-4).
Though head coach Bill Belichick is inevitably sending a message that the 42-14 win in Week 14 means nothing now, Dan Shaughnessy has a different outlook in his column in the...

After a bye week off, the Patriots now know who their divisional round opponent is — and they should seem pretty familiar.
It wasn’t all that lone ago (just under a month, in fact) that the Houston Texans traveled to Gillette Stadium for what was billed as a heavyweight matchup between two Super Bowl contenders. The end result didn’t nearly match the hype, as Tom Brady and...
On Sunday, the Patriots will take on the Houston Texans in the AFC divisional round. As we all know, the Patriots manhandled the Texans in week 14 by a score of 42-14 and seemed to be primed for another run deep into the postseason. While the Pats are 9.5 point favorites at the moment, don’t expect this week to be another walk in the park.
The Texans are coming off of an...
Growing up in San Antonio, I have been more-or-less conditioned into being a Cowboys fan. It wasn’t something I chose per say, it was something that was bestowed upon me. As great as that has been at times, recently I have found myself in situations like the one I faced the other day when a friend asked:“Why are you a Cowboys fan? The Texans are better and Houston is closer to...
The Patriots opened as 9.5-point favorites as they host the Houston Texans in the Divisional Round of the AFC playoffs.
Let’s get past the obvious – the Pats made the Texans look like a JV squad a few weeks ago. That game happened. It’s over. The Pats don’t start out with a four-TD lead just because they won by that margin a month ago. And just because they stomped...
