The Houston Texans on Sunday came out swinging, stunning the Kansas City Chiefs by racing out to a 24-0 lead. In this fight, though, the Texans’ early barrage of offense turned out to merely be poking the bear, and the Chiefs mauled them worse than Leonardo DiCaprio in “The Revenant.”
Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt may have achieved his greatest accomplishment yet with his almost superhuman-like recovery from a torn left pectoral muscle injury to return to play in Saturday’s AFC Wild Card round playoff game against the Buffalo Bills at NRG Stadium.
Saturday's AFC Wild Card playoff game between the Texans and the Bills ended with a moment that will be immortalized in Houston professional sports history, and quarterback Deshaun Watson was the star of that moment.
The Houston Texans’ 35-14 loss to the Tennessee Titans at NRG Stadium on Sunday had all the excitement of a preseason game. Surely, next week’s AFC Divisional Round playoff game back at NRG Stadium against the Buffalo Bills will be a little different, though.
While local high school sports take a break — aside from some out-of-town weekend tournaments — this week, there is still plenty to follow.
The only constant for the Texans this season has been their inconsistency, so not only should their struggles this week following last week’s huge win over the Tennessee Titans be unsurprising, it was a downright appropriate way to wrap up their division championship.
One quality the Houston Texans have possessed with consistency this season is that every time they have suffered a deflating loss, they have answered back in a big way.

Astros manager A.J. Hinch’s decision to remove starting pitcher Zack Greinke from the game after the slightest couple of stumbles will be looked upon as what cost them the 2019 Fall Classic.

Facing dire straits after losing their first two games at home, the Houston Astros pulled off the highly unlikely, becoming road warriors to sweep the Washington Nationals at their home park and regain control of the 2019 World Series.
Tied 2-2, the 2019 World Series becomes a best-of-three series, and, despite their previous performances, the Astros can feel confident with dual aces Gerrit Cole and Justin Verlander set to start on the hill for the next two games to potentially take it back — a World Series title, that is.
If this Astros team can re-gain the spark that made them such a force of nature for much of the regular season, they can overcome even the longest of odds. But, right now, it doesn’t look good.
