Yates behind the line of scrimmage and unleashed a 21-yard touchdown pass to Alfred Blue, breaking a 10-10 tie. **WR THROWING TD ALERT!!*...

WATCH: Bengals DB Pacman Jones Lays Some Serious Wood On Texans WR Cecil Shorts

If the Houston Texans are going to have any chance to beat the Cincinnati Bengals Monday night it is going to have to be a defensive minded game--from both teams. Should the Texans defense play as good as it can Andy Dalton is not going to lead the Bengals to too many points. On the flip side, to make sure the Texans don't try to steal a win the Bengals defense is going to have to...

Houston Texans: possible round 2 and 3 targets

With the 16th pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the Houston Texans have selected Kevin Johnson, cornerback, Wake Forest. I’ll admit that I had no expectations of the Texans selecting a cornerback in the first round. This isn’t a terrible pick, but it wasn’t necessarily an immediate need either.

Jacksonville Jaguars: Home cooking?

The NFL is wading through some tough times.  It seems as though every headline is about a player being arrested or suspended.  We need to get back to discussing the actual games and debating who the elite QB’s are (totally kidding, this is a terrible topic that never has a true answer).  Either way, I believe that Week 3 of the NFL season will get us back on track and prove...
