1-0 so far!

Week 2 has the team up against the guys who ended their last season, the KC Chefs. Got this one at NRG today!

Go Texans!

thank god that they got that one back! I don't like that Osweiler has back-to-back games with an interception at the goal line, but the defense did their part and Hopkins made it look easy!

Will Fuller is the real deal. That guy can stretch the field and that's going to leave Hopkins open more often than he has ever been in his career.

Looked like a catch and fumble to me, whatever though.

Say Watt?!

Really liking what I'm seeing from the secondary today.

And J.J. Watt with 2 sacks already...the guy is not human.

Hope the defense can keep it up in the second half. I want to see double digit takeaways!

Need to cash in on those opportunities though, this game is still too close for comfort.

I still have the bitter taste of 30-0 in my mouth.

The Chefs had a big comeback last week. The defense has got to stop them early.

JJ has two sacks, but I think that the other two sacks this game will linger in Alex Smith's head after this. That hit from behind by Simon he didn't see coming, and then that brutal spear by McKinney just took him down!

Anyone else have a really bad feeling about this 4th quarter?

That drive was decent and much needed, but coming away with just FG's makes my taint sore.

This next drive needs to result in a score for the Texans.

And not a field goal again, hopefully.

I'd like to see them use Ervin more on offense instead of just special teams. I think that he'd be a nice compliment to Miller.

I think that the ball took some paint off of the lower goal post on that one...

How concerned should we be about the team's red zone offense?

Too many field goal attempts in that KC game. Still a good win, though. 2-0!

This is a game that usually in the past they probably would have found a way to lose, so it's a nice win against a tough opponent.

I'm definitely concerned about the red zone issue, but it's still early and there is a lot of potential to improve in that area so I won't lose too much sleep over it right now.

I hope Braxton doesn't miss too much time with his hamstring injury.
