Texans’ draft class is warming the bench, and next year’s draft looks bleak

It’s hard to be optimistic about the Texans this season after their 0-3 start, and given the realities of Houston’s 2020 and 2021 draft classes, it’s hard to be optimistic about the Texans in the future, either.

When Titans coach Mike Vrabel called from the airport for a quick chat after Sunday’s come-from-behind win over the Vikings, I told him this is the kind of game that will lead to more gray hairs. “And heart pills,” Vrabel said.

Rams feel late pass interference penalty was “obviously not” the right call

Bills quarterback Josh Allen didn’t mind the pass interference penalty that officials called on Rams cornerback Darious Williams on a fourth down late in Sunday’s win, but the reaction on the other side was quite different.

Josh Allen praises “very selfless” Stefon Diggs

The Bills have started the season 3-0, fueled by the performance of quarterback Josh Allen. Allen’s performance has been fueled by the arrival of receiver Stefon Diggs.
