NFL’s quarterly review: why Prescott, Beckham, and Watt headline
Within a quarter into the 2016 NFL season, the league
has already experienced a dramatic sense of highs and lows, from season-ending
injuries to season-saving prodigies.
The Houston Texans have announced that JJ Watt is officially
out for the remainder of the season after receiving back surgery on Thursday.
The three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year has been placed on the injured
reserved list, according to ESPN.
This organization was optimistic starting off the season with
a full-arsenal at defense, a personal they planned for when drafting Clowney
back in 2014. Texans’ Head Coach, Bill O’ Brien, again will need to address both
sides of the ball.
What will the Texans look like without Watt?
Concerns on offense as well as defense really do give Texans’
fans a reason to think, “Houston, we have a problem.”

Dallas Cowboys will have to deal with the obstacle of missing their star
quarterback Tony Romo and Dez Bryant. For Cowboy fans, 2016 just looks like a mirror
image of last season, until Dak Prescott emerged.
Leaving on a good note during the preseason, Cowboys nation
was optimistic of Prescott’s success, but remained questionable if it would
carry over to the regular season, and it most certainly did.
The Prescott hype is real, and it is thriving in Dallas.
While the rookie remains humble, and consistent through out
his work, Prescott fans around the league are anything but modest. Some believe
he would be legitimate starter over Romo if he was healthy today, according to
foxsports.com, Terry Bradshaw told Collin Cowherd he
would bench Romo even if healthy in favor Prescott.
The journey of the Cowboys continues through destination
Dak; they will need to achieve their goals under the rookie sensation. The Cowboys
are carrying momentum in their 2-1 record, and are favored on their road trip
to San Francisco on Sunday.
Following the loss to the Redskins last week, Odell Beckham finds
himself somewhere in the middle of NFL’s highs and lows by expressing his emotions
on his sleeve. Beckham’s temper-tantrum on Sunday, was just a mere distraction
to his New York Giants personal, rather than a detriment – as he certainly was
a factor in helping them win a tough fought game.
Beckham, 23, is one of the most electric wide receivers in
the NFL and his personality is a big part of it. The young superstar is
starting to remind some folks of Terrell Owens, extreme talent but also with
Of course there is some animosity towards the young
superstar, but for most cases the cards are in his hands to become the next
superstar in New York.
