The Texans were defeated 27-0 on Thursday night, as the New England Patriots handed them their first loss of the 2016 season.

Turnovers plagued the Texans, who fumbled on two kickoff returns. The Patriots scored 14 points off Texans giveaways. 

Brock Osweiler and the offense struggled as the Texans were shutout in the regular season for the first time in 13 years (Jacksonville, 12/7/03). Osweiler completed 24-of-41 passes for 196 yards and threw one interception. DeAndre Hopkins led all Texans receivers with four catches for 56 yards. Lamar Miller contributed 107 yards from scrimmage, (80 yards rushing, 27 yards receiving). 

Rookie Jacoby Brissett made his first career start for the Patriots and was 11-of-19 for 103 yards, while also running for 48 yards and one touchdown. LeGarrette Blount rushed for 105 yards on 24 carries and scored two touchdowns, both in the second half.  

The Texans defense was led by linebacker Benardrick McKinney who had a team-high 16 tackles, one sack, one quarterback hit, and one tackle for loss.

New England scored first on a 24-yard field goal by Stephen Gostowski with 2:07 left in the first quarter. A fumble on the ensuing kickoff return by Charles James II gave the Patriots possession at Houston’s 22-yard line. Two plays later, Brissett scored on a 27-yard touchdown run and New England took a 10-0 lead.

Drew Brees WHOLEHEARTEDLY Disagrees with Kaep

Courtesy of ESPN
METAIRIE, La. -- Drew Brees said he felt compelled to speak out against Colin Kaepernick's refusal to stand during the national anthem and said Monday that it was "bothering me all day long."
The New Orleans Saints quarterback, who has long been a passionate supporter of the military, stressed that he has no issue with Kaepernick's desire to speak out against racial injustice. He just has an issue with the San Francisco 49ersquarterback's method of protest. Brees said the American flag is "sacred." 
"I disagree. I wholeheartedly disagree," Brees told ESPN. "Not that he wants to speak out about a very important issue. No, he can speak out about a very important issue. But there's plenty of other ways that you can do that in a peaceful manner that doesn't involve being disrespectful to the American flag.
"The great thing about this country is that we have the freedoms that allow you to speak out openly about any issue. So I'm not commenting on the issue itself because any person has the right to speak out on any issue they want. That's the great thing about being an American. But the American flag is what represents those freedoms. It represents the very freedom that Colin Kaepernick gets the opportunity to exercise by speaking out his opinion in a peaceful manner about that issue. …
"Like, it's an oxymoron that you're sitting down, disrespecting that flag that has given you the freedom to speak out."

LAPD Didnt find ANY Firearms in Chris Brown's Home

Despite an initial report from TMZ that upon presenting a search warrant, the LAPD found drugs and firearms in Chris Brown’s home, the Los Angeles Times is now reporting that police discovered no such weapons.

Brown was arrested on Tuesday (Aug. 30) on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after Baylee Curran, an aspiring actress and model, accused the singer of pointing a gun at her when she went to examine a piece of jewelry.

“It has become apparent that the allegations are not just false but fabricated,” his attorney Mark Geragos said, noting as well that during their search of Brown’s home, the LAPD found neither the piece of jewelry Curran describes in her report, nor any firearms.

Breezy was released on $250,000 bail late Tuesday evening, with an arraignment scheduled for Sept. 20 at the Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center. The singer has yet to address the charges beyond an Instagram video in which he says he’ll be turning the cheek, though Geragos said upon Brown’s release, “Chris is out and well. The allegations against him are demonstrably false.”

Bridgewater Out For Season: SportsFusionLive

Courtesy of Yahoo.com
If you want to visualize what a tibiofemoral dislocation looks like on an X-ray, don’t say we didn’t warn you. Doctors said Bridgewater didn’t have any nerve or arterial damage, and considering the severe bone displacement associated with the injury, we’re stunned that he avoided such issues.
Remember, this was a non-contact injury, so from the information we have, Bridgewater’s knee essentially exploded just from him running around. Credit is due to the Minnesota trainers, because to go from nearly losing your leg to a long-term prognosis of returning to football is an amazing turnaround. But seriously, how can a non-contact injury be so severe?
Now that the immediate medical danger has passed for Bridgewater, the focus will turn to the Vikings’ replacement for him this season. Shaun Hill is the backup on the roster, and Colin Kaepernick is reportedly available for trade, but if Minnesota’s front office is reportedly like most of them out there, they are too concerned with his protests to pick him up. 

Tomi Lahren Attacks Kaep Again

On the Aug. 30 edition of “The Breakfast Club,” host Charlamagne Tha God chooses The Blaze‘sTomi Lahren for his “Donkey of The Day” segment.
Yesterday, Lahren ranted about San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s decision to sit during the national anthem. Furthermore, she attacks his family while questioning if he has the right to protest because of his wealth.
In the segment above, the conservative host says that the quarterback should not blame white people for Black people’s problems.
“Colin, how dare you sit there and blame white people for the problems [in] the minority communities?” Lahren asks rhetorically. “After all, aren’t you half white? Didn’t two white parents adopt you after yours weren’t willing to raise you? For a racist and horrible country filled with racist and horrible white people, that’s really something, isn’t it?”
However, Charlamagne points out the QB did not mention white people in his announcement about the protest.
“Tomi, when did Colin Kaepernick blame white people for anything?” He asks. “I read the 20-minute transcripts. I listened to it. He doesn’t even mention white people. [Kaepernick] says there’s things going on in this country that are unjust. And that people aren’t being held accountable for it. He said ‘People!’ He didn’t say ‘white people,’ he said ‘people!’”

Gymnast Break Leg in Rio Olympics

This is the horrendous moment a French gymnast's Olympics were ended in a single moment after he severely broke his left leg while landing on a vault.

Samir Ait Said's leg snapped as he tried to complete his vault during team preliminaries on Saturday, with the sound of the injury echoing through the arena.

As he crumpled to the floor, Said writhed in agony while medical officials tended to him in front of a shocked crowd.

After a delay of several minutes, he was eventually wheeled out and raised one arm to acknowledge the loud ovation he received from the crowd. 

Several viewers watching on television took to social media to express their shock after the incident was broadcast live, with many detailing the loudness of the 'crack'.

The injury means Said will leave the Olympics prematurely, having also been expected to compete in the men's parallel bars, the individual all-round, the team all-round, floor exercise, rings and the pommel horse.

New Music: A Meazy "Mind Yours"

A Meazy hails from Denver, Colorado and began making music at an early age. He found
his influence and stride through writing rhymes and forming a hip- hop group with his brother Taurean called “The Offense.” The two went on to build a solid following in the Mile High City before branching off to solo careers as affiliated artists of NDE, a crew of progressive MCs, deejays and producers. A Meazy’s debut album “The Real Ned Flanders” was released in January 2015 and was conceptually built

Day 3: Texans Training Camp


Today was another hot one but it did not effect Jalen Strong. He came in today with positive mind on today's practice. Another conditioning day for the team being that it was done in full pads.

OBrien stated some good and bad scenarios were brought to light and stated, "Which thats to be expected, but really proud of this team for really grinding it out". 'Good start today, just gotta keep better everyday".


Obrien also addressed the running back situation with the Texans. He states that Lamar is the running back, and he feels really good with the backs at that position. Which include a variety of fresh legs for the season.

Defense did a look a lil sluggish, but you would be too, with 101 degree heat beating down on you and in full pads. August is Football season BUT, is also Houston's HOT period.

In all O'Brien stated, the team did have some good runs in the red zone but does need to get better. Again we are only Day 3 in Training Camp and the team simply meshing together again.

Texans Football is BAAAAACK!

TEXANS FOOTBALL IS BAAAAAACK

Today was the first official day of Training Camp for the Houston Texans presented by Xfinity. The squad looked a lil rusty, but thats expected from the time off from the previous season. Coach OBrien and the coaching staff had there hands full scoping out players and getting things in order.

Since today was open to the public, the Texans had fans in the stands and on the sidelines cheering on the team, which provided some positive motivation. Of course, O'Brien had the tunes bumping with a mixture of Pop, Country tunes and of his favorite.....Rick Ross, Push It To limit serenading the field and audience

Mercilus and Cushing looked good for the first day of camp, along with the anticipated performance of Brock Osweiler. The 6ft 6in quarterback ran a few drills that looked promising for the season.

Even though he wasnt suited, the fan favorite, JJ Watt walked out on the field and the fans went craaaaaaazzzyyyyy. If you didnt notice he was being escorted and body guarded by a young man also by the name of Justin, who was also a crowd favorite. Justin is waiting on a heart transplant through the Make A Wish Foundation. He and JJ waved to the fans, played catch and captured the hearts of the spectators.

JJ had back surgery a few days ago, and to still see him interact and show for the 1st day of practice was surreal for a few. And of course was the topic of discussion between the team fans and Coach O'Brien. When ask about if he was going play the first game of the season, JJ responded.... "I cant put a start date on when I will be able to play, but I have never missed a game in 5 years".

So as a supporter and fan, we hope JJ has a speedy recovery and hits the field soon.

Also, during the press conference, Obrien addressed D.Hop sitting out practice by saying,  "I'm very focused on the guys that are out here today, I love coaching the guy and I speak for everybody here when I say he's an exceptional player, and when he comes back he will be thrown right in there".

In case you didnt know D. Hop was holding out for more bread and butter, and in an update headline, he has decided to return to practice so maybe an agreement was met. We will find out at a later date.

All in all it was great start to Training Camp. We hope the season starts off just as great.So now the question is, how confident are the Texans in selecting the 2017 Team. Who will make the cut? Well if you are a fan, you have about 5 more practices that are open to the public to see who will make the final roster. Visit, www.HoustonTexans.com for more practice dates and how to obtain your tix.
