Three and Out: Useless Predictions for Texans-Packers

Check in with the BRB staff to see how it feels about the Houston Texans trip to Green Bay to take on a possibly resurgent Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. Tim: Texans 23, Packers 21. Objectively, this prediction makes little to no sense. The Texans' offense has shown no ability to consistently score. It's a road game. Aaron Rodgers is Aaron Rodgers. There's really no reason...

Houston Texans should fear future with quarterback Brock Osweiler

Entering the previous offseason, the Houston Texans were in a major predicament. Would they continue to string along a group of mediocre quarterbacks or plunge into a major financial risk? On March 10, the highly-regarded backup Brock Osweiler signed a four-year, $72 million contract, including $37 million in guarantees in the first two seasons with the franchise. Last season...

Texans not benching Brock Osweiler for Tom Savage

Brock Osweiler’s poor play on Sunday will not result in him losing his job. Houston Texans head coach Bill O’Brien said “no” when asked if Osweiler would be replaced with backup Tom Savage. “No,” O’Brien said, via ESPN. “We’re going to come in here tomorrow, we’re going to correct mistakes, and move on to Green Bay.” Osweiler had arguably his worst game of...

Bill O’Brien has nobody to blame but himself for Texans’ loss to Raiders

In my latest This Weekend in NFL Stupid column, I issued a very passionate rant about how stupid Houston Texans head coach Bill O’Brien was to punt on a 4th-and-5 down seven points with one timeout and 3:13 remaining against the Oakland Raiders: “Down seven. Fourth-and-five near midfield. Just over three minutes to play. Texans have just one timeout. And yet O’Brien opts...

Osweiler says laser pointer in Mexico affected his play

Brock Osweiler has struggled enough in his first season as the starting quarterback for the Houston Texans. The last thing he needed was a fan flashing a massive laser in his face, but that’s exactly what happened during the NFL’s first ever game in Mexico City Monday night. A rather large green light could be seen on Osweiler’s face several times as he was dropping back to...

WATCH: Amari Cooper TD lifts Raiders to victory over Texans

Oakland Raiders receiver Amari Cooper was held quiet throughout Monday night’s game against the Texans—with three catches for 22 yards—but he came alive in the fourth quarter when the team needed it most. It’s important to note that Cooper was banged up heading into the game, and was questionable until the day of the Mexico City matchup. But he played through it, and came...

WATCH: Brock Osweiler foolishly catches own pass for loss

The Texans put together a solid drive and looked poised to tie Monday’s game against the Raiders at 10-10 after a Lamar Miller run put them on the one-yard line with a first-and-goal situation. Rather than sticking with the ground game, though, they dialed up a pass, and to their credit, Duane Brown was wide-open in the end zone by himself. Brock Osweiler tried to float the ball...
