NFL Week 15 sets up to be a real doozy, as there are six games between teams still battling for postseason berths or seeding.

Here are the 12 most important games remaining on the 2018 NFL schedule:...

Texans designate CB Kayvon Webster for return

The Texans have designated cornerback Kayvon Webster to return from injured reserve, the club announced today. Webster was placed on IR in early October after suffering his a strained quad. Because he’s already missed eight weeks of action, Webster is eligible to return to the active roster at any time. Now that Webster has returned to practice, Houston has opened a three-week window during which it must either place him on its 53-man roster, or leave him on injured reserve for the rest...

Can The Texans Play A Complete Game Against The Jets?

Injuries may keep it from happening.

When you see a team with a lot of fire, talent, and promise struggle to bring it all together, it builds anticipation. Watching games where one aspect of a team falters but other areas save the day brings the thought of “What would this team be capable of if they could just play a complete game?”.

A lot of Texans fans are asking that question right now.

After the historic nine-game win streak ended, many wonder what is coming next.

Causes For Concern About The 9-4 Houston Texans

The Texans showed two glaring holes Sunday afternoon against the Colts. Whenever a team surges to a nine-game winning streak and has it cut before the tenth win in a row, it tends to give off an “it was fun while it lasted” type of feeling. As it should. Nine straight wins in the NFL is a rarity. Winning nine games total is difficult, let alone accumulating those victories in consecutive fashion. Despite the hype of the streak, there’s a lingering sour taste after Sunday’s home loss...

The Saints, per Nick Underhill of The Advocate (on Twitter), will fill Ola’s roster spot with free agent tackle Derek Newton, who has not played football since October 2016. While Newton’s career was thought to be over, the formerly dependable Texans tackle has participated in workouts during the 2018 season — most recently with...
