The Houston Texans beat Buffalo 31-10 on the back of Ryan “Game Over” Moats who ran strong for 3 TD’s in the 4th quarter.
Louisiana Tech’s own Ryan Moats ended his career best day with 126 yards rushing on 23 carries and the 3 money-balls. You just heard two sounds…one was Steve Slaton’s ass hitting the bench and the other was 10,000 simultaneous mouse clicks from dudes like me adding R. Moats to fantasy teams all around the world.
The Texans D came to play in a big way in Buffalo today, holding the Bills to 97 yards rushing and only 107 in the air. LB Brian Cushing played out of his mind! He tweeted triumphantly immediately after the game:
"Going back to TEXAS 5 & 3! This team has great defensive chemistry NOW! I was told I had 10 tackles, 1 sack, & 1int YEAH! BRING ON THE COLTS!!!"
The bad news of the day for Houston came in the second quarter when TE Owen Daniels hit the turf with an serious knee injury. He was ruled out at the half, and was declared kaput for 2009 shortly after the game. This really sucks. Daniels came into the game leading all TE’s in receiving yards and was second in TD’s. He was definitely Schaub’s favorite little buddy to play catch with, and Daniels back-up is…Joel Dreessen. Oh Crap.
Great. That’s what I get for taunting the curse that the Texans lifted last week. It seems the cosmic karmic universe has found another way to inflict lose/win onto the Houston Texans. It gives us a dominating road win and a 3 game winning streak and yet it TAKES AWAY our starting TE and leading receiver for the rest of the season. Such is the woe of being a Houston sports fan.
Terrell Owens may be the Bills best hope running the ball, his 29 yard rush Buffalo’s only touchdown.
The Williams are a team lost, adrift in a sea of hurt. Luckily for the fans of the Buffalo New York area, the Sabres have yet to be eliminated from the hunt for the Stanley Cup.
The Texans stay on the road and play the Colts in Indianapolis next Sunday. The Colts had a tough time beating the 49ers who the Texans just had a tough time beating, so this could be a perfect storm of awesomeness before the much-needed bye week.
Let’s keep on rejoicing Texans fans! These are uncharted waters for our Houston Texans! We’ve never had a 5-3 record before, this is THE BEST WE’VE EVER BEEN!
Get excited, tell a friend, this is the beginning of the good ole days for the Texans.
