What Texans have to do after season-ending injuries to Watt, Mercilus

Let's try to sift through the carnage. Even with the loss of Eric Berry in Week 1, the Chiefs have proven to be one of the best teams in the league by a pretty wide margin. The Chiefs were just too much for a depleted defense to stand up to on Sunday, but Watson keeps flickers of hope alive in games like last night's, which, four starts in, is a huge compliment. Despite this, quarterback Alex Smith completed 29 of his 37 passes, throwing for three touchdowns in 324 yards, granting Smith his second 300-yard passing game of the season, a career high for him. Most importantly, Fuller is showing much more consistency with his hands this season, making tough catches and proving to be a reliable target so defenses can't key on DeAndre Hopkins.

Watch as Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson goes one-yard for a TD on option versus Titans. They are trailing the Kansas City Chiefs 26-13 early in the fourth quarter. With Watt missing most of last season as well, Clowney had a breakout year where he was one of the best edge defenders in football.

The Texans are also without Whitney Mercilus among the defensive front seven, which means two of their best pass rushers and overall forces in terms of tackles for loss are now out of the game. Nearly immediately on Sunday night, they watched highly talented edge rusher Whitney Mercilus go down with an injury. And then Watt's knee buckled a few plays later, and it was very evident that the sports gods don't want any of us here to have nice things. Huge question for 2018. The Texans coverage teams stink.

Congress' components parts definition", Lytton said , adding that the lawsuit did not present novel legal arguments. The physical injuries are staggering, and we know the emotional injuries can be equally severe and long term.

You already know that Deshaun Watson is a pretty darn good quarterback but the former Clemson star flashed his defensive prowess in Week 5 on Sunday Night Football. The Chiefs host the Steelers next week.

This is a situation the Texans are familiar with considering how the 2016 season went.
