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.”
Just four weeks into the 2016 NFL season, injuries have already have become a detriment to teams, some even are playoff-doubtful; the 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 extreme antics.
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.

Aspiring sports journalist, it began with my studies in Broadcast Journalism at CSUN. LA Native, now 26 years old. I'm absolutely crazy about sports, and would say it is definitely my passion. I played soccer all my life, and football at Hart High. I hope one day to continue my football dreams as a professional kicker, either CFL, Arena Football, and maybe one day the NFL.
