The 10 Most Spiritual Texans-Jags Rapper Tweets

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. Here's how they saw Sunday's road win over the hapless Jacksonville Jaguars. The 31-20 victory may not have been a miracle, but the Texans' season would have been as dead as Lazarus without it.
