HOUSTON -- The rest did Houston Texans inside linebacker Brian Cushing some good.

"Moving around, cutting, running, endurance," Cushing said. "Feel a lot better; just excited."

Cushing added that he wasn't sure yet if he would play Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, but he did say this:

"Nothing's definite, but I feel good. I want to play and hope to play. That's the plan."

The Texans listed inside linebacker Jeff Tarpinian (knee) as out.

One of the biggest Eagles fans on earth breaks down why his favorite team will not be having a pleasant Sunday afternoon against the Texans.
Brandon Gowton of Bleeding Green Nation proposed an interesting idea to me earlier in the week. I would write a quick little column on why the Texans would lose this Sunday’s game, and he would write about why his Eagles would lose. We would then swap our answers and post them on our respective sites. As homeriffic as SB Nation writers tend to be...

HOUSTON -- While the Philadelphia Eagles have allowed 22.3 points per game (ranking 15th), they score 6.7 more points than that, a points per game margin that ranks seventh in the league. That comes from a potent offense and special teams. The Eagles are the only team in the league to have scored touchdowns on a kickoff return and a punt return.

Offensively, Eagles quarterback Nick Foles has thrown more interceptions this season (Houston Texans coach Bill O'Brien called him more "...

HOUSTON --The Philadelphia Eagles have run 498 plays this season, and on a per-game basis that ranks second in the NFL. Their time of possession ranks second to last in the NFL, because those plays they have run come quickly to opposing defenses.

"We have to meet their tempo because if we’re not ready to go, we end up giving up plays," Texans defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel said this week. "We’ve been practicing this week at a fast tempo, and I think the guys have acclimated...

The team released their final injury report of the week on Friday and running back Darren Sproles and center Jason Kelce are both probable to play against the Texans.

Reading the coverage of the Houston Texans...

Ryan Pickett was on the golf course when he got a call that the Houston Texans wanted to take a look at him, writes Dale Robertson of the Houston Chronicle. He left the next day for a team that needed help stopping the run. Since then, Pickett has turned into an important piece of the Texans' defense. "[The Texans] weren't on my mind," he said. "Nobody was, really. If I walked by the TV and saw that a game was on, I might stop and watch a...

The Rams have brought back Case Keenum. St. Louis signed Keenum, the ex-Texans quarterback, to its practice squad on Thursday, according to the NFL’s transaction log. The Rams waived Keenum on Tuesday. When he cleared waivers Wednesday, he was eligible to be added to the practice squad. The 26-year-old Keenum started eight games for Houston…

Arian Foster is second in the NFL with 766 yards rushing, despite missing one game with a hamstring injury and rushing for only 6 yards on eight carries against Buffalo.

Philadelphia inside linebacker DeMeco Ryans, Foster's former teammate, will be trying to contain him.

The offense must improve pass protection, especially blitz pickup.

Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has been sacked 11 times in the last three games, including five against Indianapolis and five vs.

Join us for an NFC South battle, as SOMEONE actually needs to win this division.
NFL rules dictate every division must have a winner, yet clearly nobody wants to win the NFC South in 2014.
Somehow, the Carolina Panthers (3-4-1, 1st place NFC South) have herp'd and derp'd their way to the top of the division, but it certainly feels tenuous.  The New Orleans Saints (3-4, 2nd place NFC South) refuse to wear pants when they play on the road, or at least they play like it.  It's to...

HOUSTON -- Since 2012, when the J.J. Watt batted-passes phenomenon began, the players who lead the league in batted passes are two with similar roots. And they'll both be on the field at NRG Stadium on Sunday.

Watt leads the league since 2012 with 28 batted passes. Eagles outside linebacker Connor Barwin has 17 batted passes since then.

"I think it’s something that has to do with Bill Kollar," Barwin said, referencing the Texans' defensive line coach.
