Error-prone Texans fall to Giants

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - There won't be another 0-6 start for the New York Giants, thanks in large part to some old-time football. Rashad Jennings ran for a career-high 176 yards and a touchdown and Eli Manning threw two TD passes as the Giants overcame some early mistakes and beat the suddenly error-prone Houston Texans 30-17 on Sunday.

The Houston Texans Perfectly Execute A Fake Punt, Then Throw An Interception

Fake punts are hard to pull off, but the Texans managed to convert on one today. Here, Shane Lechler makes his case to be the Texans’ new starting quarterback (kidding).

The Road Diary: Eagles at Colts

Horsie Not Fat EnoughFor the past six years, I've taken the Shooter Mom to a road game for our beloved Eagles. Why a road game? Frankly, they are more fun. It's more relaxed from our part, since we're not as life and death on whether the club gets a win; you just don't expect it so much on road games, so a win is more of a bonus than a relief. The players tend to...

Raider Behind Enemy Lines: J.J. Watt injury, Arian Foster and more

1) Ryan Fitzpatrick had a pretty good showing in the season opener, do you think this team can win many games with the Harvard grad at the helm? Fitzpatrick looked comfortable and solid in his first game with the Texans. I think that as long as he continues to succeed in Bill O’Brien’s pass-heavy offense, and he strongly avoids the turnovers, there’s little doubt that the Texans...

Are the Kansas City Chiefs destined to fall on their face in 2014?

It was always hard to take the 2013 Kansas City Chiefs seriously. They have a fine head coaching mind at the helm who was in his first season, and one of the best pass rushing tandems between Justin Houston and Tamba Hali. They also employ Jamaal Charles, a running back capable of turning a game around with a single burst who averaged 123.75 total yards per game last year. What was...

Texans defense dominates Redskins, 14 game losing streak ends

Houston, we have a problem to the rest of the NFL. It’s their defense, which put on a much-more dominant performance than the Seattle Seahawks did on Thursday Night, and that is saying something. Jadeveon Clowney left early with a knee injury and didn’t return, and it’s unknown if it’s serious. The Texans dominated everywhere on the field, and won a critical opening game...
