How The Houston Texans Have Become A Force To Be Reckoned With

For the last few seasons, the AFC South has arguably been the laughingstock of the NFL. The division has failed to provide a powerhouse in the league for years, and has only one Super Bowl to its name, when Peyton Manning led the Indianapolis Colts over the Chicago Bears in 2007. Heading into 2016, it seemed as if the AFC South was finally gearing up to become a powerful division...

Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins was one of the lucky NFL players to receive a pair of Yeezy 350 Boosts cleats designed by Kanye West. They’re a cool looking pair of shoes, which is why Hopkins brought them out during the Houston Texans’ season opener last week. But, it seems like the league doesn’t share the same fashion sense as Hopkins or West as they fined the wide...
