Here are your daily Houston Texans stories for Saturday:
Texans Work with Boys and Girls Club by Brittany Taylor, NBC Houston
"The Texans signed a 5-year partnership in February with the BGCGH and created the new Teens club with a gift of $750,000, which is the largest donation by a professional sports team in Houston.The facility will be exclusively for teens between the ages of 14 and 17."
Always great to see how this team gives back to the community. The Texans are more than just a football team, they are a force for good in the community.

Osweiler puts pressure on Texans defense by Sarah Barshop, ESPN
"Houston committed four turnovers, including Osweiler’s three interceptions, in its 21-13 loss to the San Diego Chargers, the Texans’ first loss at NRG Stadium this season.“[It’s] very difficult and put us in tough spots,” defensive end Jadeveon Clowney said of the offense’s turnovers. “But it happens, and you’ve got to go out there and bow up. We did it a lot last week against Oakland, bowed up at the goal line and gave up three. So that was good. So we should have come out here and bowed up when our offense turned the ball over.”"
It is certainly true that the defense has had to clean up a lot of messes made by the offense this year. Imagine where their numbers would be if the offense wasn’t utterly terrible.
Attacking the Pack by Mark Vandermeer, Houstontexans.com
"This was a big ‘circle it on the calendar’ game when the schedule was released in April. At the time you had no idea that the Packers would be below .500 and fighting for their playoff lives.The Texans are above .500, leading their division yet fighting for their playoff lives themselves. That’s because Houston has lost two games in a row and has failed to establish the offensive consistency, particularly in the passing game, that they need for a big finish. But there is a lot of football left and a terrific opportunity to work toward reaching whatever the full potential is with this group."
This is going to be an opportunity for the Texans to get a win I would not have expected at the start of the season. Green Bay is coming off a short week and their defense has not played well recently. Lamar Miller will be leaned upon perhaps even more than usual, and could win the day for Houston.
