Happy Monday Texans fans, let’s take a look at the stories around the team kicking off your work week:
Bill O’Brien interested in Maryland job by Henry Buggy, HNGN
"The Texans are still very much alive for a playoff spot in a weak AFC South Division. Houston is 3-5 on the season and is looking to build momentum off their win over the Tennessee Titans. The Texans travel to Paul Brown Stadium to face the Bengals on Monday Night Football and have a difficult task against an undefeated Cincinnati team.It’s unclear if O’Brien is seriously interested in the Maryland coaching position, but changes could come for the Texans if they don’t make the playoffs this season."
Texans can’t waste their talent by Nathaniel Rutherford, Today’s Pigskin
"Houston is arguably the most talented team in the AFC South. Indianapolis likely has the best quarterback, and Jacksonville could have a star running back in the making, but the Texans have easily the best defensive player in J.J. Watt and wide receiver in DeAndre Hopkins, and the rest of their skill players on both sides of the ball match up with or surpass their counterparts in the division. Yet the Texans seem intent on wasting that talent."
Six points by FOX sports
"TEXANS1.Don’t dig an early hole on offenseHouston has scored just four first-half touchdowns through the first eight games of the season. Against an offense like Cincinnati’s, that certainly won’t cut it. If the Texans hope to keep pace in this one, they’ll need to figure out a way to put points up early so they’re not forced to play catch-up in the second half."
How much do you hate J.J. Watt? by WCPO
"Matt Luken throws down the gauntlet and says that only the Steelers are lower than JJ Watt in his ladder of hatred. Mr. Satin claims that Andy Dalton will be the face of the NFL next year."
If Watt needed any more motivation tomorrow night. Let these clowns bash Watt while Watt does plenty of work in the community.
