The Houston Texans’ 2015 season began with HBO’s Hard Knocks introducing the team to America at large. It took a month of filming and some fancy editing to present to the nation our sometimes thrilling and frequently frustrating NFL franchise. Home Box Office could have saved all that time and money by just directing the curious to the Twitter accounts of Houston’s most notorious rappers. Keeping a tradition alive, we’ve once again collected some of the most insightful Tweets these artists/Texans fans shared on game day.
The Texans' defense wasn't just dominant, it was unlike anything the Saints have seen in a decade. The last time New Orleans failed to score a touchdown in a game, the top-charting Billboard artists were Ciara, the Pussycat Dolls and Bow Wow. In other words, ancient history. According to ESPN, the Saints had scored a touchdown in 155 consecutive games, the second-longest streak in NFL history. They were a dozen such games away from displacing the Cleveland Browns from the record — until they came to NRG Stadium Sunday afternoon.
