The Houston Texans will hire Denver offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak to take over the worst team in the league and help decide what to do with the first pick in the draft. Texans owner Bob McNair said during a news conference last night that the hiring won't be completed until later in the week. The Texans couldn't negotiate a contract with Kubiak until the Broncos were eliminated from the playoffs. McNair's announcement came about an hour after Denver lost to Pittsburgh in the AFC Championship Game.

THE HOUSTON Texans look like the new bullies in the AFC - at least for now. Matt Schaub threw two touchdown passes, Arian Foster ran for two scores and the Texans dominated a showdown of the conference's top two teams, routing the Baltimore Ravens, 43-13, on Sunday. Johnathan Joseph returned an interception 52 yards for a touchdown and the Texans (6-1) finally beat Baltimore, which had won all six previous meetings and eliminated them from last year's playoffs. Schaub completed 23 of 37 passes for 256 yards and the Texans set a franchise record for points in a game and finished with 420 yards.

The Houston Texans know the ultimate success for most NFL teams lies at quarterback. So when the Texans make the first selection in the NFL draft on April 20, they will choose Fresno State quarterback David Carr. That announcement, unusual in that it came more than two weeks before the draft, was announced yesterday by owner Bob McNair, although the decision was made by general manager Charley Casserly and coach Dom Capers. "To win, you have to have a good quarterback. Charley and his people have looked at this long and hard," McNair said.

INDIANAPOLIS - Reggie Wayne will always remember last night's catch. The man with the expiring contract caught a 1-yard touchdown pass from Dan Orlovsky with 19 seconds left, giving the Colts their only lead of the game in a 19-16 victory over AFC South champion Houston. It's the second straight win for the Colts (2-13), who will have to fight off St. Louis and Minnesota for the No. 1 overall draft pick. Orlovsky, who played the last two seasons with Houston, also won his second straight game after losing his first nine NFL starts.

HOUSTON - Andre Johnson turned upfield, fell awkwardly forward and clutched the back of his right leg. In past seasons, an injury to their All-Pro receiver would've doomed the Texans. That was before they had Arian Foster. Foster rushed for 155 yards and scored the go-ahead touchdown after Johnson left with a hamstring injury, leading the Texans to a 17-10 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers yesterday. "I go into every contest thinking that I'm the go-to guy," Foster said.

Last week, an agent for Eric Moulds said the wide receiver wanted to play for the Eagles. That, obviously, didn't work out, and yesterday, he agreed to a contract with Houston and said the Texans have worked out a trade to acquire him from Buffalo. Moulds, who had the Bills' permission to seek a trade, agreed to a 4-year, $14 million contract that includes a $5 million signing bonus. It's not clear what the Texans traded to Buffalo, but it's believed to be a fourth- or fifth-round pick in this month's draft.

The Houston Texans are expected to turn to Jacksonville's first college draft pick ever as their top pick in today's expansion draft. Tony Boselli, the expansion Jaguars' No. 1 pick out of Southern California in 1995, probably will be called on to help build another expansion team. "Boselli is a cornerstone," Texans offensive coordinator Chris Palmer said. "He will be a trivia question if we take him. He'd be the only guy ever picked by two expansion teams. " Boselli, selected for the Pro Bowl five times, played in only three games last season because of shoulder injuries.

The Houston Texans turned to their kids, then to their stars, to win the first playoff appearance in franchise history, a 31-10 rout of the bungling Cincinnati Bengals. Rookie J.J. Watt's leaping interception return for a touchdown late in the first half propelled the Texans in Saturday's AFC wild-card game. Third-string quarterback T.J. Yates, another rookie pressed into action, threw a 40-yard touchdown pass to Andre Johnson, and Arian Foster followed with his second touchdown of the game, a 42-yard run in the fourth quarter, to finish off the Bengals (9-8)

HOUSTON - Nick Foles' left arm was resting in a sling by the time the clock expired on the Eagles' 31-21 win over the Houston Texans on Sunday, and Foles' broken collarbone was not even the most devastating injury of the afternoon. Inside linebacker DeMeco Ryans, the team's defensive leader, needed to be carted off the field in the fourth quarter with a ruptured right Achilles tendon, according to a league source. The carnage continued for the Eagles, whose fortune with injuries from one season ago ran out. They needed backup quarterback Mark Sanchez to help lead the victory.

TWO DAYS after the first costly blunder of his young NFL career, Josh Huff approached Cedric Thornton with a request. "Try to get the ball from me," the rookie receiver said. This was just before the Eagles took the NovaCare Complex practice fields Tuesday for their first practice of the week. Thornton, a starting defensive end, relayed Huff's message to the rest of the defensive linemen, and for the rest of this past week they hounded No. 11 in green whenever he touched the ball.

HOUSTON - Texans fans were wearing red T-shirts that the team handed out on the way into NRG Stadium, Eagles fans were wearing green, but fans and the players on both teams all agreed on one thing yesterday. Watching Eagles middle linebacker DeMeco Ryans leave on a cart, after suffering what a source said was a season-ending tear of his right Achilles' tendon, was heartrending. "Our thoughts and prayers are with DeMeco right now," said Texans center Chris Myers, who played with Ryans for four of Ryans' six seasons in Houston.

JADEVEON CLOWNEY was too sick to play against the Eagles yesterday. But apparently, the Texans linebacker - or someone with access to his Instagram account - was well enough to "like" a photo of a woman at the very same time his team was losing to the Birds. The info comes by way of Nick Wright, a morning-drive host for SportsRadio 610 in Houston. "Man, I just checked," Wright tweeted at the time. "Clowney, or someone on his account, absolutely "Liked" someone's Instagram picture at 12:45 p.m. today.

DeMeco Ryans last played in Houston on Jan. 7, 2012. It was his first playoff game after spending six years trying to help turn the Texans into contenders. He was their captain, a popular player who started every game he ever played in a Texans uniform. By the end of March, he was traded to Philadelphia. Three seasons later, Ryans returns to Houston with the Eagles to play against the team that shipped him away. A combination of football economics and a changing roster prompted the move, although there were questions about whether Ryans could return to Pro Bowl form after he suffered an Achilles tendon injury in 2010.

Eagles offensive lineman Todd Herremans was a full participant in practice Wednesday despite a torn biceps. His left arm was wrapped with a brace and tape. Herremans will try to play Sunday against the Texans in Houston. Herremans was unavailable for comment. Coach Chip Kelly, who has never had a player take the field with this injury, said the decision will be up to Herremans. "A lot of it will be Todd's determination of what he can do and can't do," Kelly said. "A lot of it, we'll just sit down and visit with him at the end of the week and make a determination . . . From a guy like him, a veteran like him that understands himself . . . that has been through a lot, a lot of that is on him and our doctor staff.

Center Jason Kelce, preparing to play for the first time since undergoing Week 4 abdominal surgery, said all the usual things about how smart and fierce Watt is, how hard it is to prepare for an opponent who moves around the line so much. Finally, though, after question number eleventy-billion about Watt, Kelce said this: "We don't care who we're playing, we're playing our offense.

IN THE FALL OF 2008, Chris Maragos and J.J. Watt were walk-ons at the University of Wisconsin, Watt having transferred back to his home state after not getting much playing time as a freshman tight end at Central Michigan, Maragos having left Western Michigan in search of a bigger stage. Watt - shifted to defense and still growing into his 6-5, 289-pound frame - sat out the season under NCAA transfer rules, but a few practices taught Maragos a lot about the man who remains his friend and offseason workout companion.
