Pro Football Focus Grades Texans In Win Over Bills

Pro Football Focus has inside information on how individual Houston players performed in the team’s win against Buffalo.

Pro Football Focus grades every game and every player. I dig their raw number totals and have other opinions on their ability to grade individual plays like this. You may feel differently. No matter how you feel, there’s always something to learn from the work they do. This is what PFF had to say about the Texans’ win against the Bills.

Red Zone Play: Texans Fans, Are You Not Entertained?

It’s pretty easy to draw parallels between the modern NFL and the Roman gladiatorial games. The powers that be want to keep the masses distracted from all the unscrupulous nonsense they pull each and every day by offering up a spectacle of human prowess, fraught with danger and drama. Sadly, it works just as well in the 21st century as it did in the first century to distract the population from what’s really going on in the world.

Houston, we have a problem.

Monday Night Football Live: 49ers at Packers

Week Six concludes with a Monday night game you will forget for the rest of your life. Watch along with us here.

It’s Monday night, and you don’t want to do anything else but watch football, right? I mean, duh. Don’t be absurd. All that is right with the world is football. Unfortunately there’s not much to tonight’s tilt since Jimmy Garoppolo is done for the year; he kind of made the 49ers interesting.

Plus, seeing Kyle Shanahan run a competent, or at least functional,...

Snap Counts: Bills vs. Texans

Check out this week’s Snap Counts!

NOTES:

For the first time this season, rookie safety Justin Reid played every defensive snap. It’s a strong sign of the third-round pick’s progression throughout his first season. Here’s to hoping Reid keeps it up! Lamar Miller returned to action after missing last week’s game with a thigh injury. He recorded 46 rushing yards on 15 carries in the win. Benardrick McKinney continues to be an under-the-radar leader for the Texans this season. He...

Texans v. Bills Review: Quick Thoughts

Here are some of the finer details from Sunday’s game.

I didn’t think this season could get any dumber after the Dallas game. That had to be the pinnacle of stupid nobody wants to win this game football. Then Houston played Buffalo. I’ll never constrict the infinite bounds of stupidity. The Texans played another smooth brain football game. One filled with punt mishaps, a fumbling quarterback, missed connections, a Nathan Peterman entrance, and a game winning pick six. Houston is 3-3...

Incompletions: Texans-Bills (Can’t Die)

With so much to write and talk about after every game, and not enough time for one person to write about it all, the masthead joins together and writes about the never-ending absurdity.

Matt Weston:

In the first half of the Texans-Bills game, the scoreboard clicked its way to 10-0. Houston turned a blocked punt and a muffed punt into ten points. The offense seemed like it was moving better than it really was at the time because of Buffalo’s two punting errors.

My brain lied to me. I was...

Ever wonder what we’re saying during the game? Well, wonder no longer! Read what we were saying during Sunday’s game here.

I don’t really want to talk much about Sunday’s game because it feels like we’ve seen it three times in a row now and it’s gotten no more interesting than the first time it happened.

I don’t want to rail against Brain O’Brien because the warts are all there, we all know what they are and they’re not improving either.

Sunday Night Football Live: Chiefs vs. Patriots

Mahomes gonna throw it over that there mountain and the Patriots’ secondary.

It’s SNF time. Tonight, it’s a clash between two of the AFC’s better squads, with the high-powered Chiefs offense taking on the Patriots and the combined might of Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.

Hopefully, there will be a continuation of the Chiefs’ modus operandi of lots of points, lots of yards, and Patrick Mahomes throwing the ball 70 yards on a line.

For all that action and more, this will be your open...

Houston Texans Final Score And Post-Game Recap: Texans 20, Bills 13

Johnathan Joseph to the rescue.

Houston went into the half up 10-0. They were handed great field position by two Buffalo punting screw ups, a blocked punt, and a muffed punt. Things were boring and pleasant. It looked to be an easy stroll towards victory.

Then the second half happened, and the gates of hell were opened and the Bills’ pass rush was unleashed. Kyle Williams made it look like it was 2014 again. Jerry Hughes was diabolical. Trent Edwards consistently brought pressure. Even,...

Twitter reacts to Nathan Peterman throwing costly pick-six

Nathan Peterman continues to play like the worst quarterback in football. Immediately after the Buffalo Bills’ defense made a great goal-line stand to force a tying field goal on Sunday in Houston, Peterman cost Buffalo with a pick-six. Peterman completely telegraphed an out on second down with 1:30 left that was intercepted by Johnathan Joseph and returned 28 yards for a Texans touchdown. Twitter crushed Peterman for his horrendous play. The pick-six cost Buffalo the game, as it took a...

Texans vs. Bills Live: Fourth Quarter

It’s time for the final quarter between the Texans and Bills.

The Bills defense is single-handedly keeping Buffalo in this game, but they are being helped out a lot by terrible play from the Texans offense. The offensive line can’t block anyone, and Deshaun Watson’s three total turnovers have led to multiple free possessions for the Bills inside Houston territory.

Despite an amazing performance by the Texans defense themselves, this game is still very much in danger of being lost in...

Texans vs. Bills Live: Third Quarter

It’s time for the second half of the Texans-Bills.

The second half of Texans-Bills begins with the Texans receiving the kick off to try to build on their 10-0 lead. Houston’s performance has been rather up and down overall, with some great highlights on offense (like Nuk’s back shoulder touchdown), but also some terrible, terrible low-lights (like Deshaun’s inexcusable interception).

The Texans defense and special teams have more than held up their end of the bargain, however, by...

Watch: DeAndre Hopkins continues his dominating play

Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins continues to make sweet music with young quarterback Deshaun Watson. After watching his quarterback go down on two sacks earlier in the game, Hopkins took matters into his own hands against the Buffalo Bills. It came in the form of this brilliant 13-yard touchdown catch to put the Texans up 7-0: As you can see, Hopkins elevated over Bills cornerback Tre’Davious White for the amazing score. Given how darn good White has been since entering the...
