Texans start fast, Jets hear the boos at home

In a game that seemed set up for the Texans to jump all over the Jets, and for the New York fans to boo the home team, that’s exactly how things got started.

The Texans received the opening kickoff and made it look easy, methodically marching the ball down the field on an eight-play, 85-yard drive that ended with Matt Schaub hitting Owen Daniels for a 34-yard touchdown pass and a quick 7-0 lead.

The Jets then responded with a disappointing drive that featured a false start penalty and a quick punt. The boos were loud with the Jets’ offense on the field.

The Texans and Jets then traded three-and-outs, with the most exciting moment coming when Tim Tebow got a snap at quarterback and just missed on a deep pass that could have been a touchdown. The Jets can’t afford to miss opportunities like that.

    Looks like another easy win for the Texans, this may be the end of the Sanchez era and the beginning of the tebow era in new york

    Tebow couldn’t have thrown that 1st pass any better. Right in the breadbasket.

    Tebow starts by week 8. Said it 4 months ago.

    Ok you know what I’m going to root for an injury now to Arian Foster. He just had a big run and afterwards, THREE different players gave him a head butt like as if that’s their standard method of showing respect. That’s beyond stupid and setting a bad example for kids. I hope he gets knocked out of this game by getting a bruise on his brain, aka a concussion, and then younger and smarter people can learn from terrible actions and choices that these fools make. Go ahead and hate me for being politically incorrect in this world of stubborn yes-men that think the world revolves around only their viewpoints.

    C’mon somebody from Houston hit him a little too hard please! It will be worth it in the long run and a valuable lesson can be learned at the expense of the stupid and the irresponsible.

    I’ll be right back, it’s time to go appreciate my nice home by throwing some rocks at it. Don’t worry about it anybody, I know the safe spots to intentionally attack my most valuable financial investment. Ain’t I cool?

    If it’s still 14-7 or 14-14 at the half, Texans better e careful.

    One team in NY is the World Champions, the other is, well you know, the jets.

    That is the most asinine thing I’ve ever heard. If you think a guy is going to get a concussion from headbutting a teammate rather than running the ball between the tackles, you are a complete and utter moron. For your sake I hope you get a concussion when you hit your head on the cupboard door when you stand up from getting your lite beer you pansy.

    Disclaimer: I don’t really care for the Jets and think Tebow is a horrible QB (but a great football player & human), but that pass was perfect. Dude dropped it.

    So….does anyone need a defensive coordinator after the season ends?

    His resume includes numerous imaginary championships.
