    Tuesday afternoon, the Houston Texans put up a post on the teams website to announce that head coach Gary Kubiak was being released from the hospital, less than 48 hours removed from the frightening mini-stroke that he suffered at halftime of the 27-24 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. The comments s ... More >>

    Texans Special Teams: 8 Negative Plays That Lost The Colts Game

    Among the numerous statistical conundrums that define the 2013 Houston Texans, perhaps the one most often mentioned is the fact that the Houston Texans' defense somehow ranks first in the NFL in fewest yards allowed per game. Out of respect before each game and then perhaps to inflate their own acc ... More >>

    Texans Kicking Woes: What To Do About Poor Randy Bullock

    When Randy Bullock missed his third kick Sunday -- the fourth in the first two games of his Texans' career -- my initial, emotion-fueled instinct was simple. Cut him. The Texans (2-0), while not perfect, are legitimate Super Bowl contenders and probably No. 2 in the AFC pecking order behind only D ... More >>

    Houston Texans Free Agents: Priority And Return Likelihood Ratings

    After winning the BCS national title this season, Nick Saban was asked how long he is able to enjoy the taste of winning before moving onto the next season. Saban, in his typical understated, serial killer tone, said that he basically takes one day and then it's onto the next season. Well, if you'r ... More >>

    Patriots 41, Texans 28: Offense Turns Offensive On Big Stage. Again.

    Ignore the main box score numbers. Forget the 425 total yards for Houston and the 28 points. Same for the 41 placed in the New England column. In the big picture, it's more of the same. Gary Kubiak, Matt Schaub and the Houston offense shoulder the majority of blame in yet another crucial game, this ... More >>

    In the grand scheme of things, none of us really wanted to be there at Reliant Stadium on Saturday.

    Texans 19, Bengals 13: Bulls On Parade Are Back, But Schaub Holds Key

    Make no mistake about it. For the first time in weeks, the Texans showed flashes of their former Super Bowl-contending selves. But without a steadier performance from quarterback Matt Schaub, it won't matter. The once-famed "Bulls on Parade" defense overwhelmed Cincinnati (10-7) and second-year qu ... More >>

    Colts 28, Texans 16: Gary Kubiak-Led Collapse Reaches Fitting Conclusion

    Dumbfounding special teams miscues. A 70-yard touchdown over the top on 3rd-and-23. Two inexplicable Matt Schaub interceptions with the offense rolling. Four offsides penalties. Two timeouts wasted on a baffling challenge and an indecisive fourth down. These are Gary Kubiak's Houston Texans. In the ... More >>

    Texans 29, Colts 17: Back-to-Basics Approach Nets AFC South Title, Renews Playoff Hopes

    It seems evident that Matt Schaub isn't going to win a shootout with the likes of Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers. Perhaps not with Andrew Luck. But if the team's other components execute the way they're designed to, he shouldn't have to. On Sunday, the Texans (12-2) finally returned to their core princ ... More >>

    After back-to-back games of exhilarating drama, the Texans seem back to their usual selves. That's just fine for soon-to-be Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt.

Watt and Brian Cushing, there isn't that much use to reading fortunes on that side of the ball. The Saints are an eli ... More >>
