The Texans Should Get Back On Track Against E.J. Manuel And The Bills After Not Jumping On The Opportunity To Start 3-0
There were a few things that stood out to me last week in the Texans’ loss to the Giants, and the main one was that the Texans really gave that game away. This can probably be said for almost every loss any team ever has, but in this game the Texans had many opportunities to put the Giants on the ropes and knock them out early. Continue reading →
How Should Arian’s Carries Be Handled And Should J.J. Watt In Goaline Situations Be A Regular Thing
Two of the biggest topics this week have been the number of tough carries Arian Foster has gotten in the first two weeks of the season and whether J.J. Watt should be a regular part of the goaline package. Continue reading →
The best fantasy football player from the Texans has been Arian Foster, who through two weeks has been handed the ball 27 times and 28 times, each time getting over 100 yards. At some point the Texans will begin to insert other running backs into the mix with more regularity but as long as the Texans keep winning Foster should continue to get a big workload.
Bill O’Brien is conscious of the carries that he is giving Arian Foster but with the Colts dropping to 0-2, the Texans have a big opportunity to maintain control of the division the rest of the way if they can widen that gap early. That may mean a lot more touches to come for Arian through the first six or so games of the season. Continue reading →
The Houston Texans improved to 2-0 on the season by completely destroying the Oakland Raiders in their home opener. It is the fifth straight year that the Texans have started their season winning their first 2 games.
Ryan Fitzpatrick And Texans Have A Turnover Free Game
One of the biggest keys for the Texans to come out with a victory over the Raiders was for them to not shoot themselves in the foot and take care of the ball. Ryan Fitzpatrick has been fumble and interception prone in his career but so far in facing lesser competition and relying heavily on a running game, he has yet to turn the ball over in the regular season.

In facing a not very good Oakland Raiders team, the Texans are presented a very good opportunity to start the season 2-0. The Raiders are led by Rookie quarterback Derek Carr who averaged just 4.7 yards per pass attempt last week against the Jets and had a running game that was only able to rush for 25 yards on the day.
For this game the Raiders will be playing at home but the formula for the Texans to win should be relatively simple. Against this Raiders team, the Texans should be able to come away with a victory if they can get pressure on Derek Carr the way they did against the Redskins and if the Texans offense doesn’t commit multiple turnovers.
