Texans DE Jadeveon Clowney was asked what he thought about former teammate Brock Osweiler. “He's not here anymore. So I don't really care for him,” Clowney said. “I don't know. We didn't win a lot with him. Trying to go against him now. Try to get after him this week upfront make him rattled in the pocket, hope he'll throw a couple of interceptions.”

Will Deshaun Watson survive this season?

Mina and Danny Kelly weigh in on the Texans' offensive line and ask what the heck is going on with the Jaguars' defense. Also, can Jacksonville work around Blake Bortles?

Deshaun Watson said on Wednesday that he feels better than he did a week ago while dealing with a chest injury. “I'm cleared to practice,” he said. “I'm cleared to do everything. So I'm good.” Watson said he didn't play with any extra padding on Sunday against the Bills and that his injury didn't affect much of his game other than playing “a little conservative as far as running the ball. Outside of that, it didn't really bother me,” Watson said. “I didn't worry about the injury or anything during the Cowboys game because I didn't know what was going on -- no one did -- and then last week I was fine and I was cleared to play and I was healthy.”
