There is no letting up for the Houston Texans who are now being led (and quite successfully) by former Cowboys QB Brandon Weeden. Weeden, who could not win a quarter while serving his term with “da boys” has now led the Texans to two straight victories including running for a touchdown and throwing for two more in a 34-6 romping of the Tennessee Titans.
“We needed this one,” Weeden said. “As a team, we needed this one. It feels good personally, I’m more excited for this team.”
Now the Texans hold their fate in their hands as they face the Jacksonville Jaguars (5-10) this weekend and a victory is a must.
“We have to play to win,” Houston coach Bill O’Brien said of his approach against Jacksonville. “I think the bottom line is we need to win. I don’t think we can look at any scenario, this scenario, that scenario, I believe that we need to play to win.”

With a 16-10 win over the Indianapolis Colts Sunday afternoon, the Houston Texans have moved into first place in the AFC South with the Colts third loss in a row. The caveat being, that former discarded Cowboy Quarterback Brandon Weeden led the Texans to the win after quarterback T.J. Yates went down with a knee injury.
“He’s (Weeden) a pro, he acts like a pro, he carries himself like a pro, he is a pro,” coach Bill O’Brien said. “Look, I’m not sure he has the whole offense down pat, but I think he has enough that he can go in there and function.
Weeden, the third string QB was inserted after starter Brian Hoyer was ineligible due to concussion protocols and after backup T.J. Yates went down with a minute and change left in the first half. The win in Indy was the teams first in 14 tries.
“I’ve only been here a month, but I found out early in the week that we had never won here and I think guys were hungry,” Weeden said. “I think guys kind of knew what we were playing for and all that was at stake.”
The Texans will hit the road after Christmas to take on the Tennessee Titans on Sunday and with a win over the Titans move a step closer to securing their third Division Title in five years.
