Houston DST allows season high 42 points in Week 5 loss

Fantasy Tip: DE J.J. Watt does not have sack this season but has 4 ½ sacks, forced fumble and fumble return combined in last three meetings with Kansas City. Could those numbers get even better in Week 5? Watt's campaign raised more than $37 million. J.J. volunteered almost all his spare time at shelters last month as well. We may find that the Texans are so good that we are wondering if they can outscore all their opponents, and they will have a defense that can stop all their opponents because they are so powerful. The Texans are now without two of their most important defensive linemen, making their season a little more bleak. "There's a lot of guys in this room that don't quit and we showed that tonight".

J.J. Watt definitely looks the part of an American folk hero.

It's easy to be high on the Texans after last week. Along with Jacksonville, the Texans appear to be in the upper half of the AFC South, but that could change depending on the state of Houston's defense.

J.J. Watt was named the No. 3 of the top 100 players in 2016.

The Texans, meanwhile, draw the Cleveland Browns next week, but have a tougher road ahead, with the Seahawks, Rams, and Jaguars still on the slate.

One thing that Al Michaels and Chris Collinsworth noted on Sunday Night Football was that the Houston defense counts on those guys so much in their pass rush that they don't have a great deal of depth behind them.

NOTES: Texans LB Whitney Mercilus was lost to injury on the first defensive series, and the Houston Chronicle reported he will undergo season-ending surgery to fix a torn pectoral muscle.

They have 12 games left this season, a long way to go if they want to make a jump this year. Quarterback Alex Smith continued his impressive season with 324 passing yards and three touchdowns-two of which went to Charcandrick West-while Kareem Hunt tallied 107 yards on the ground.

Sunday night, NBC's Football Night in America will feature an interview between Mike Tirico and Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson, prior to the Houston-Kansas City game. It's a number that bears watching when it comes to Watson and the Houston Texans. In five games this year, Watt recorded 15 tackles but no sacks. Lastly, Texans coach Bill O'Brien dedicated the season to the city and people of Houston. Is this great American folk hero out of the game for good?

Watt sustained a tibial plateau fracture to end his season early for the second straight year.

Others touched by the injury bug included New York Jets running back Bilal Powell (calf), Miami Dolphins wide receiver DeVante Parker (ankle) and Tennessee Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan (knee).

J.J. Watt is an American folk hero, beloved in Houston, and Texans are praying for Watt's full recovery.
