Texans hope balanced offense is their calling card this season – by Sarah Barshop, ESPN
"Pro Bowl receiver DeAndre Hopkins, who has praised the help Houston gave him on offense during the offseason, said if the Texans can continue to get everyone involved, they can create a lot of options and cause problems for opposing defenses.“It’s very difficult [for defenses],” said Hopkins, who had five catches for 54 yards and a touchdown. “You have to pick your poison — who you want to double-team, who you want to focus on. Lamar Miller running like he is, that creates a lot of options for us.”"
Commentary: Don’t forget the other guy the Texans signed – Lamar Miller – by Greg Rajan, Houston Chronicle

And there was Will Fuller, the speedy wide receiver plucked in the first round who showed off his tantalizing talents in Sunday’s season opener."
