Good win by the Texans today.  Rest up.
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

0 penalties on the defense today, I believe.  Our new CB had a hell of a game.  Passrush finally showed up in the 2nd half, and they held Fournette to his fewest scrimmage yards of the year. 

I'll give BoB and the scouts a ton of credit:  I was totally wrong about Howard, thought he'd be a project.  He's by far the best rookie OL in the NFL.
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

Defense really stepped up in the second half.  I told Mrs. Hawk middle of the 4Q, "I can't remember the last time the Texans has a takeaway".  They proceeded to get four in the next eight plays.

It was. I don’t follow the specific prognoses that closely, but I’d love to see those DBs, Tunsil and Fuller back. Need em all to make a playoff push.

Everyone else in the division lost today.

Bye week, then the Ravens followed by the Colts on a Thursday night.  That's going to be a big game!

The Thursday night affair could result in Brian Hoyer starting at NRG for the first time since he was on the wrong side of a 30-0 playoff game and, unfortunately, playing for the Texans.

Didn’t “Hoyer” become a verb with severely negative connotations?

If he does play against us, I bet he won’t Hoyer it up this time.

The NFL has no fucking balls. Just admit that sometimes officials can be dead wrong.

Ok, why even allow PI to be challenged if you're just going to spit in people's eyes when they challenge?

Just from my personal observation, it seems like the more MLB implements technology, the better the umpiring on the field gets. Sure, sometimes it's bad, sometimes it's terrible, but across the board it seems to be getting incrementally better.

The NFL is most definitely going in the other direction. I used to be pretty happy with the officiating week to week, whether I was watching games I was invested in or not. This year in particular, the officiating is worse than it has ever been that I can remember. The more they implement technology, the worse it gets.

It's at the point where it's nearing NBA level bad, and that means unwatchably bad.

I'm not sure Watson is going to survive this game.

Glad I’m not watching. Sounds like the Texans were never even in this one.

Our offense genius head coach seemed surprised that the Ravens blitzed early and often and had no scheme to offset or counteract it. Of course, the Texans were coming off a bye and the ravens blitz more than any other team in the league, so draw whatever conclusions you see fit.
