“If you can win the seventh, eighth, and ninth innings, you have a chance to win the ballgame, and if you are behind you have a chance to get back in the ballgame,” Baker said after the game. “I have always managed that way and I always preach to the team to win the eighth and the ninth innings.”
For the first 30 minutes on Sunday, the Houston Texans looked as if they would be able to steal a victory from the Cleveland Browns at their own home stadium. Unfortunately for Houston, the game is a 60-minute contest, and the Texans allowed the game to get away from them in the second half as they lost to the Browns by a score of 31-21 to fall to 1-1 on the season.
"I think people took Tyrod for granted,” said Mayfield about his former teammate. “He's an extremely good leader. Obviously, great athlete. He's a great QB. I'm very thankful to have stepped into the QB room with Drew Stanton and Tyrod. I was able to learn from those guys. It’s something I’m obviously very grateful for.”

One thing I have never witnessed until Friday night in the Astros 4-3 extra innings victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks was a bases-loaded walk-off hit by pitch. No, you did not misread that last sentence. Yes, the Astros won a game with a walk-off hit by pitch. The last time Houston got a victory in that fashion was on Aug. 8, 1998. It was also the third time in franchise history that it has happened.
Prairie View A&M (1-1) will square off against an unfamiliar foe in their home opener when they face Houston Baptist University (0-2) on Saturday in their home opener at Panther Stadium. It will be the first time both teams have met since HBU began its football program in 2013. The Panthers will be looking to rebound from a 40-9 defeat they suffered against University of the Incarnate Word on last Saturday.
With the Texans upcoming game against the Cleveland Browns, a lot has been made about the one-two punch of Browns running backs Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt, and rightfully so as the two combined for 230 yards rushing in a Week 10 victory over the Texans. Yet, it may be another offensive weapon that starting quarterback Baker Mayfield has at his disposal that Houston should pay attention to and that is tight end David Njoku.
The Houston Astros got some much-needed offense on Wednesday in a 7-2 defeat of the Texas Rangers. One day after producing only one run in a loss on Tuesday to the Rangers, Houston used back-to-back home runs by outfielder Jake Meyers and infielder Marwin Gonzalez in the second inning to get on the board first and that lead would never be relinquished as starting pitcher Jose Urquidy (7-3) pitched six innings and only allowed one run.
The David Culley era of Houston Texans football began on Sunday at NRG Stadium against divisional foe Jacksonville Jaguars. The tenured NFL positions coach who was given an opportunity to become a head coach by the Houston Texans after the team fired Bill O’ Brien, won his first game with a 37-21 victory over the Jags.
