Texans’ Mills faces huge test in 1st start against Panthers

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2021

The Carolina Panthers will face a rookie quarterback making his first NFL start for the second time in three games Thursday night against Davis Mills and the Houston Texans. Carolina (2-0) opened the season with a 19-14 victory over the New York Jets in the debut of Zach Wilson, the second overall pick in this year’s draft. Now they’ll meet Mills, a third-round selection who’s filling in for the Texans (1-1) indefinitely after Tyrod Taylor injured his hamstring last weekend and was placed on inj...

For Pete’s Sake – Browns Week 2 Vs Texans Victory

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2021

Nicole was nice enough to invite to take me to the office this week and we saw the game live. The first thing that stood out to us was the vibe of the team. It felt like the Browns knew they were better than the Texans and weren't overly concerned with them, trusting that their talent would ultimately take over and lead to victory, which is exactly what happened.

Panthers, off to 2-0 start, visit Texans in prime time

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2021

In an effort to get every team a Thursday game, NFL schedule makers often take some of the likely tail-enders and stick them in early season games. It's unlikely those folks expected an undefeated Carolina Panthers when they were put in the Week 3 prime-time match against Houston, which is almost as surprisingly 1-1. Well, there's enough interest, first because with the Texans minus their stand-in starting quarterback, Tyrod Taylor, out with a hamstring issue, won't be turning to their in-limbo star and former starter, Deshaun Watson.

NFL Rebs: Week Two and the return of Robert Nkemdiche

Tuesday, September 21st, 2021

It was somewhat of a boring week for our NFL Rebs in week two, but there are still always some standouts. Elijah Moore stepped onto the scene after a very slow week one, and while his quarterback threw four passes to the other team, Moore is starting to the league the same thing fans saw last year. Royce Newman is playing in Lambeau Field and doing a team huddle with freaking Aaron Rodgers as I type this.

Injuries force Browns to rely on running game to tame Texans

Monday, September 20th, 2021

With quarterback Baker Mayfield's left shoulder smarting and dependable wide receiver Jarvis Landry in the locker room with a knee injury, Browns coach Kevin Stefanski was forced to make an in-game adjustment. It was a no-brainer: Run the ball. Stefanski turned to Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt — Cleveland's dynamic and devastating backfield duo — to carry the Browns through much of a 31-21 win over the Houston Texans on Sunday.
