The 2014 Houston Texans have a new coach, new players, new hope and the same dedicated fan base of Houston-based rappers. As in years past, they took to Twitter on game day to comment on the home team's gridiron action.

And, as in years past, Rocks Off spent Sunday afternoon reading their tweets. In a game that recalled that old Ben Folds Five song, "The Battle of Who Could Care Less," the Indianapolis Colts stumbled awkwardly to a win and the AFC South division title. The uneventful game's biggest highlight was Ryan Fitzpatrick's unfortunate, season-ending injury and rookie Tom Savage's valiant trial by fire.

We wanted to stand with him on a mountain and, er,..bathe with him in the sea, but in the end, the Texans' playoff hopes were buried in a Savage garden. To be fair, the kid tried hard and played as well as could be expected, and a helluva lot better than the highly touted guy who got his first career start in Cleveland on Sunday. There were the usual Tweets about the dubious play-calling and the suspect defensive secondary, but in the end what mattered most was the disappointing outcome and everyone had something to say about it:

10. Fitz: Fractured Tibia. Savage: MRI Scheduled Monday.

9. Not a Rapper, But If @chitakhou Wants To Comment, The Floor Is Hers #cuzshescute

8. Lechler Was the Texans MVP Sunday. He May Have Done Well at QB.

7. Back to Basiks

6. Texans: 0-13 In Indianapolis

5. There Goes Dat Boi T

4. Paging T.J. Yates. Paging Sage Rosenfels. Paging Dave Ragone.

3. He's Been Healthy But Inactive All Year. Was It #Revenge?

2. Cowboys. Steelers. Bengals.

1. Comic Relief -- Thankfully -- From The Hilarious Jenny Johnson. Keep Smiling, Texans Fans.
