Game Braxton Miller Jersey
Game Clay Matthews Jersey Mallett did not play well, and was eventually replaced by Hoyer at the end of one game, and then again before Hoyer was named the full-time starter. Hoyer led the team to a few wins and the Texans started to look competitive while the Colts floundered. Unfortunately, Hoyer is dealing with a concussion that has forced him to miss time, leading the Texans to go to backup T.J. Yates after Mallett was released for violating team rules.
It gets worse. Yates had to go on injured reserve with an injury of his own and Weeden, signed after he was released by the Dallas Cowboys — after he was insufficient as a backup for Tony Romo — is now the starter. Weeden holds the postseason future for the Texans in his hand, provided Hoyer does miss Sunday’s game, as expected.
If he can get them a win on Sunday, the Texans will grab the fourth seed in the AFC and will host a wild card playoff game. Weeden completed 11 of 18 passes for 105 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions against the Colts in Week 15. He has completed 70.7 percent of his passes with three touchdowns and two interceptions in five games this year.
The roster will likely change quite a bit given there are still two games to play, the Super Bowl-bound teams will surely have some representatives that won’t be able to play and, of course, injuries are always a factor.
Most people aren’t thinking about the Pro Bowl at this stage, but the NFL is determined to do everything it can to make the game interesting, though it’s unclear if the drafting format has led to increased interest in the game as a whole.
The Pro Bowl itself will take place on Jan. 31 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii.
