Texans DESTROY the Titans

HOUSTON -- J.J. Watt did it again.
His home crowd showered him with chants of "M-V-P," after a strip sack, fumble recovery and 14-yard return, but the Houston Texans defensive end wasn't finished.
Two plays later, Watt did what has become normal for him. He caught a 1-yard touchdown pass from Texans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, giving the Texans a 45-14 lead over the Tennessee Titans. It was the sixth touchdown pass Fitzpatrick had thrown in the game, setting a franchise record. The Texans won Sunday's game against the Titans 45-21.
Fitzpatrick also threw for a career-best 358 yards in his first start after being benched the past two games for Ryan Mallett, who suffered a season-ending chest injury last week. 
Watt is now the first defensive lineman since 1944 to have at least five touchdowns in a season. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Watt is the first player with three offensive touchdowns and two defensive scores in a single season -- regardless of position since 1948, when Joe Golding had four touchdown receptions and two interception return scores.
"Never ever, ever, ever becomes old hat," Watt said of scoring touchdowns. "It is a blast. I mean, just to hear the stadium, to see my teammates. Like I said after my first one, there's no greater feeling than scoring a touchdown and seeing your teammates come running over to congratulate you. I mean, those guys got the ball down there. It's the best feeling in the entire world."
According to ESPN Stats & Info, this is Watt's second game in the past three weeks with a forced fumble, fumble recovery and receiving TD. No other player in the past five seasons has one such game.
Watt had three tackles, two sacks, one tackle for loss, six quarterback hits, a forced fumble, fumble recovery and a receiving touchdown against the Titans.
He now has 11.5 sacks this season and five fumble recoveries.
In addition to three offensive touchdowns, Watt has caught an interception that he returned for a touchdown and recovered a fumble that he returned for a touchdown.

Rams Players are Under Fire for Protest Act!

The five Rams players who entered the field before Sunday's game against the Oakland Raidersin St. Louis with their hands in the air in "don't shoot" poses will not be fined for their actions, NFL and team sources tell ESPN's Chris Mortensen.
The players had used the team's pregame introductions to offer a show of support for nearby Ferguson. As the Rams' offense was introduced, tight endJared Cook and receivers Kenny Britt,Stedman BaileyChris Givens and Tavon Austin stopped near the tunnel and raised their hands in a nod to the fatal shooting of black teenager Michael Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9. Some witnesses said Brown had his hands up before being shot. Wilson, who is white, testified to the grand jury that Brown had hit him and reached for his gun.
The St. Louis Police Officers Association called for the players involved to be disciplined and for the Rams and the NFL to deliver a "very public apology," its statement read in part.
"I know that there are those that will say that these players are simply exercising their First Amendment rights," SLPOA business manager Jeff Roorda said in the statement. "Well, I've got news for people who think that way: Cops have First Amendment rights too, and we plan to exercise ours. I'd remind the NFL and their players that it is not the violent thugs burning down buildings that buy their advertiser's products. It's cops and the good people of St. Louis and other NFL towns that do. Somebody needs to throw a flag on this play. If it's not the NFL and the Rams, then it'll be cops and their supporters."
In response, Brian McCarthy, the NFL's VP of communications, released a statement Monday: "We respect and understand the concerns of all individuals who have expressed views on this tragic situation."
"We kind of came collectively together and decided we wanted to do something," Cook said after the Rams' 52-0 victory. "We haven't been able to go down to Ferguson to do anything because we have been busy. Secondly, it's kind of dangerous down there and none of us want to get caught up in anything.
"So we wanted to come out and show our respect to the protests and the people who have been doing a heck of a job around the world."
Earlier this week, the Rams spent time lamenting the fact there wasn't much they could do to help with the unrest in Ferguson. But Cook said he plans to go to Ferguson once things settle down.
"My sister, brother-in-law, sister-in-law -- all of them went this past week for Thanksgiving," Cook said. "They came back and reported to me about the things they saw and what was going on around there. Definitely, I will be making a trip to Ferguson."
Britt said he and his teammates were not "taking sides" with their display.
"We wanted to show that we are organized for a great cause and something positive comes out of it," Britt said. "That's what we hope we can make happen. That's our community. We wanted to let the community know that we support the community."

Bengals Fan Gets The Last Laugh

Courtesy by NFL.com
Remember the female Cincinnati Bengals fan who had a game ball snatched away from her by an ornery New Orleans Saints fan in the Superdome? You know, the one who seemingly got elbowed by an old man as he wrestled away a pass from tight end Jermaine Gresham aimed at the only Bengals fan in the vicinity of his touchdown?
Well, she got the last laugh on "NFL AM."
"I think I first just said, 'Seriously?'" said Christa Barrett, the displaced Bengals fan who moved from Cincy to New Orleans this past summer, "because I was just so surprised. Afterwards, the video of me pleading for the ball was basically just me and my sister asking, 'Hey, can we just get a picture with it?' My sister told him, 'I'm a good Christian woman. I won't steal your ball. I promise.'"
Tony Williams, 70, expressed "zero remorse" for not letting the two women near the ball when interviewed by the CBS crew, but a Saints employee delivered them another pigskin later in the game. Barrett's Bengals, of course, went on to win, 27-10, and afterward Gresham reached out to Christa's sister on Twitter.
Meanwhile, Williams is sticking to his story in an interview with WGNO-TV, likening his tussle with Barrett to battling for beads at Mardi Gras. There's a joke in there somewhere about wrestling women for beads.
"When it comes our way, we jockey for the ball," Williams told the local TV station. "That's it. She was pleading for me to give her the ball, and I said, 'No, ma'am, I'm keeping the ball.'"
The man's wife even backed her husband's actions. "It’s a free for all, something like with Mardi Gras," she said. "When a coconut is tossed or beads are tossed everybody goes for it."
And in my day, we didn't have footballs. We had coconuts. That's the way it was and we liked it.
In the end, Barrett said she "feels terrible for the guy," and hopes the backlash isn't too bad for Williams.

Texans cant Clip the Eagles: Another Loss

courtesy of  Houston Chronicle
More than five years after winning his first start at what is now called NRG Stadium, Mark Sanchez returned to Houston on Sunday as a comeback quarterback, coming off the bench to throw for 202 yards and two touchdowns in the Eagles 31-21 win over the Texans.
Houston’s defense knocked out Philadelphia starter Nick Foles with a shoulder injury on the last play of the first quarter, but Sanchez kept coach Chip Kelly’s attack running at maximum efficiency against a Texans secondary that played without two starters and a front seven that at times was slowed by the Eagles’ quick pace to a hands-on-hips crawl.
With the Cowboys’ loss Sunday to the Cardinals, the Eagles at 6-2 hold a half-game lead over Dallas for first place in the NFC East. The Texans, after winning three of their first four, are 4-5 entering their bye week
“We really believe that we are close,” Texans coach Bill O’Brien said. “We’re still certainly not out of anything. It’s a disappointed locker room, but we have a lot of games left. We need to figure out what type of spark we need.”

Meaning of A Name

With a real name like Amethyst Amelia Kelly, it's hardly surprising that the Australian rapper decided to pick up a stage name. So how did she arrive at Iggy Azalea? When her dog Iggy, named after rocker Iggy Pop, survived a run-in with a snake, Azalea had a name-plate necklace made in his honor. 

"Everybody started to think that my name was Iggy, so … I took it on board and started rapping with it," she said. Soon after, her grandfather suggested she shouldn't have a one-word stage name and the "Fancy" singer added "Azalea", "because that is a street name that my mom and family live on … it sounds very feminine and I thought it would balance out 'Iggy' being so masculine."

TPain performs w/Out Auto-Tune and Its DOPE ((VIDEO))

T-Pain's fingerprints are all over pop and R&B and hip-hop. He wasn't the first musician to use Auto-Tune as an instrument — he noticed it on a Jennifer Lopez remix, and remembers "Deep" well — but it was, as he says, his style. For a while, in the mid-2000s, he lived at the top of the charts. He dominated that brief moment of our lives when ringtones were a thing. He was celebrated as an innovator, and he happily took his talents where he was invited, which was everywhere.

But somewhere along the way, somebody got it twisted. "People felt like I was using it to sound good," says T-Pain, in an interview that will air on All Things Considered. "But I was just using it to sound different.”

He just turned 30, but T-Pain has already done enough to drop a greatest hits album next week. We asked him if he'd grace the Tiny Desk without any embellishment or effects to show what's really made his career: his voice, and those songs.--FRANNIE KELLEY

Celebrity Sparker- LFDF ((AUDIO))

One of the refreshing moments in today's music, is listening to a track that is SUPER DOPE. A few days ago I opened my email to a track called "Live Fresh Die Fly" by Celebrity Sparker of Dublyfe.

Representing Acres Homes, this track DOES not and I repeat DOES NOT sound like a typical Houston track with the traditional Slow Bang sound that is so legendary here in H-Town, and that's not a bad thing.

With the melodic vocals and southern trap sound, it will definitely be a banger for the 2nd quarter. Dont believe me, take a listen below.....


Texans Recap on Loss Against the Giants

Courtesy of Twitter.com/DoughertyDrew
 & www.HoustonTexans.com

It was a particularly tough day at the office for Ryan Fitzpatrick. The quarterback was picked off three times and sacked twice in the 30-17 loss to the Giants. But according to his head coach, Fitzpatrick shared in the blame with his 52 teammates and the coaching staff.
“We’ve got to coach better,” Bill O’Brien said. “We’ve got to play better around him. He’s got to make better decisions. He knows that. It was a team loss.”

Fitzpatrick and the offense faced third down nine times in the first three quarters. They were unable to convert a single one. That was a frustrating aspect of the game for Fitzpatrick, and despite what O’Brien said, he still was hard on himself after the loss.

"We're not going to win any games if we play like that," Fitzpatrick said. "Especially with the turnovers. Sometimes interceptions happen, but it was poor play by me."

Fitzpatrick completed 20-of-34 pass attempts for 289 yards. He said he plans on going back to work Monday morning in Houston and correcting some mistakes.One of his favorite targets in wide receiver Andre Johnson quickly dismissed the idea that the defeat was Fitzpatrick’s fault.

“It’s not just him,” Johnson said. “It’s everybody. One thing about football: one guy can’t go out and hit three home runs and go out and score 80 points.”  

At 2-1, the Texans return home to NRG Stadium for a Week 4 matchup with the 2-1 Bills.
“It’s one game,” Johnson said. “We’ll fix it. We got 13 more to play. We’ll come in tomorrow, look at what’s going on, get it fixed, work on it in practice and get ready for Buffalo.”
Johnson finished with four catches for 24 yards against the Giants.
