Texans' JJ Watt Suffers Tibial Plateau Fracture On Sunday Night Football

Share

Houston Texas star defensive lineman J.J. Watt is out for the season following a tibial plateau fracture during a game Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Texans should have an easy matchup in Week 6. Kareem Hunt led the NFL in rushing even before he and the Chiefs concluded Week 4 with a win over the Washington Redskins on "Monday Night Football".

With Mercilus out, the Texans will look to Brennan Scarlett to fill in.

Yes, Deshaun Watson is a rookie.

Smith saved his best for third down against the Texans.

Those 57 points ... none of them carry over to this week. Due to the injuries on Sunday night, there is warranted concern that the defense won't be able to make the same amount of plays. There's reason for optimism.

Over is 7-0 in Texans last 7 games following a ATS win.

From start to finish, they were cohesive. Whether or not they can fix up their act this time around is still up in the air.

"I think every game is a learning experience for him", coach Bill O'Brien said. "Let's not get ahead of ourselves here".

"That's why they call football a team sport", he said. They're No. 2 in the league in total offense, averaging 405.2 yards per game.

After fumbling away his first rushing attempt as a pro, Hunt has been dazzling. Hunt will be facing his sternest test yet in the Texans defense, who bring one of the best run stopping units to the field. Kansas City would also lose a couple of players.

DeShaun Watson will be put to the test in this game. Kansas City will try to establish the run early, which the Chiefs have been extremely efficient in doing. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapaport (among others), this will end his 2017 season. The Chiefs will be looking to maintain their flawless start to the new season, but they will have to claim a road win against the Texans who are looking to maintain pressure on the top spot in the AFC South division. "That's a good recipe for success in this league". Rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson posted his best game - throwing four touchdown passes and posting a rating of 125 - of his career against the Titans.

By Week 3, Watson was much more comfortable.

The offensive line has improved more than any part of the team since the first week.

The Chiefs were up by six when Smith found West on an 8-yard touchdown pass to make it 13-0 in the second quarter. It seems like he's more in tune (with the receivers) and the receivers are more in tune (with him).

Last week, the offense took it a step further.

Still, if they are beaten Sunday, they'll have a losing record.

Last week gave a taste of what these Texans can accomplish. What kind of odds are offshore sportsbooks giving the Texans against an elite team like Kansas City this weekend?

A strong performance, a close call, a moral victory won't be enough. While the Texans may only have a 2-2 record in Watson's starts the growth has certainly been expedited and could bode well for the Texans moving forward. DE Jadeveon Clowney has had three sacks, forced fumble and fumble return for touchdown in last two games combined.
