J.J. Watt Saves Texans from Prime-Time Embarrassment

Things didn't turn out quite as planned -- for Texan fans, tonight was supposed to be a dominating effort introducing the team to the national stage -- but a win's a win, right?

And this win was due in large part to the hands and skill of J.J. Watt, who got drooled over by the ESPN announcers as he assured the Texans remained undefeated for another week, beating the New York Jets 23-17.

It was a game filled with big plays, but the Jets are so bad the word "momentum" can never really be uttered with regard to them.

Arian Foster had another solid outing for the Texans, who look ready to take on the truly challenging part of their schedule, beginning Sunday night against Green Bay.

Maybe the second shot at prime-time introductions will go a bit more smoothly.
