Let's go boys!!! Need our offense to put up big points today. I am nervous to see our defense without Watt and a bad secondary.
Secondary was solid today. Pass rush too. I know they weren't getting home early, but it was a controlled pass rush. Squeezed the pocket had GMIII playing in a phone booth.

Really impressed with Omenehu. Martin getting some work too.

Reid got his 1st INT of the season and 4th of his career.
Did anyone notice the Jags ran the exact same play back to back? We picked it off both times, not because our defense was that good, because we weren't.

We were beat both times for big gains. But GMIII shat the bed both times & our safeties were alert & in position to take advantage.

I think this was the second best offensive game plan of the year. From the different formations on the opening drive to the tempo. Only the game plan against the Chargers was better.
I would say the K.C gameplan was the best offensive gameplan offensively. Offense/Defense overall this was the best by far. IMHO Especially if you take into account the injury situation.

That was a good game, and Watson is simply awesome. I haven’t heard from the fans I know that made the trip since a few minutes before kickoff, and I’m assuming they are in full celebration mode.

I figured a more experienced Minshew would be as dangerous as a rabid rattlesnake. On the other hand, they don't have Ramsey any more. I couldn't get to the internet this week, or I'd have predicted a donnybrook with Jax coming out on top.

I really like Duke Johnson. Hopefully he's our starter even if Miller comes back healthy next season, or trade Miller.
Lamar Miller is an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season we can't trade him. I'm hoping we get a 7th round draft pick if he goes elsewhere but I would be surprised

We still need to upgrade RG this off-season. Fulton is the weak link
I still like Fulton at Center but 7 million is a lot for next season. Add to that Nick Martin's 8 million dollars not sure I see that. Maybe better to just cut Fulton and uses $7 m elsewhere. Would prefer to keep scharping at left guard and if R Johnson cannot start at Right Guard this season, we should address that in off season. This is why Pre- trade for Tunsil, I was hoping for a trade for Trent Williams and scherff.

I'm going to my first Texans game EVER!! So stoked, been a fan since day one so I'd say it's about time.

Go Texans, I'll try not to make a scene ;)
Late feedback. HOLY COW, what a freaking show. Loved every minute of it, and the win was just sugar on the top.

Next (as in Next season) I would love to see if I could hit 2 homegames in a row in H-town. Now I've tried the stadium experience, next up home field :)

Vs the Jaguars the #Texans opted to use Justin Reid as their nickel corner with Jahleel Addae and Mike Adams as the deep safeties. Interesting wrinkle but more likely due to the injuries at the CB postion. Gareon Conley and Johnathan Joseph were the primary corners.

I’ve seen a great clip of Justin Reid firing up the D pre-game on Sunday.
Seems the young man is a leader of men already.
