The Best of the Houston Texans According to Michael Gray (Week 2)


Well ladies and gentlemen, here it is again, in all of its wonder and color. The “best of” according to ToroTimes graphic artist Michael Gray. This week’s victory over the Miami Dolphins was a much needed victory. The grit and determination of the team in apparent in each of these photos. So enjoy and do not forget that these pictures can be used as desktop wallpapers too!

Connor Barwin celebrates after sacking Miami Dolphins QB Chad Henne. Barwin was constantly bringing pressure to Henne. He accounted for two tackles and the sack but also forced Henne to throw the ball sooner than he had wanted to on many downs. He also managed to deflect a pass from the Miami quarterback. Barwin’s return to the team this season has been a great addition to the LB corps and should prove to put up some great stats this season.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels comes up with a huge catch in the end zone to give the team their first TD of the game. Daniels was blanketed by Miami Dolphins S Yeremiah Bell as he dove for the ball. At the end of the day Daniels had three catches for 25 yards and was essential in making many plays happen. His ability to help set up the screen, block would-be tacklers, and open up holes in the defense makes him one of the better TEs in the league. After missing five games last season Daniels is making great strides to becoming another offensive weapon for QB Matt Schaub.

In his first season with the Houston Texans, CB Johnathan Joseph is making a great impression – on both the Texans and opposing defenses. In this week’s game against the Dolphins Joseph came up with four tackles, three passes deflected, and an interception. His performance in this game was the cherry on top of the great pass defense that the Texans exhibited in this game. Dolphins QB Chad Henne torched the New England Patriots for more than 400 yards last week but the Texans were able to hold him to only 170 yards this week.
