Mike Clay recently ranked every backfield in the NFL Johnathan Joseph Jersey , and his findings are not encouraging if you’re a fan of the Houston Texans.In Clay’s view, the Texans boast the second-worst running back crew in the entire league, ahead of only the Indianapolis Colts.He writes:I’m one of those people who’s extremely skeptical the Texans will get anything out of D’Onta Foreman this season, so Clay’s analysis might somehow be too optimistic for me.I’m also more bullish on Lamar Miller than many Texans fans Youth J.J. Watt Jersey , but there’s no denying he hasn’t lit the world on fire since he came to Houston as a free agent a little more than two years ago.While it’s entirely reasonable to attribute a hefty portion of Miller’s struggles to a poor offensive line and/or questionable play design given what we thought were Miller’s strengths with the Dolphins, I don’t think you can put it all on the offensive line or Bill O’Brien.Back in Houston on a one-year deal after presumably finding a frigid market for his services in free agency, Alfred Blue’s most significant contributions come on special teams; that’s not exactly a glowing endorsement of him as a running back.Is Houston’s RB corps truly this poor?Or is this a case of seeing a sky that’s not really falling? Baker Mayfield capitalized on Denver's depleted cornerback corps and dubious decisions in leading the Cleveland Browns past the Broncos 17-16 on Saturday night, keeping alive their slim hopes of ending the NFL's longest playoff drought.Mayfield's 2-yard TD toss to Antonio Calloway with just under 12 minutes left provided the winning margin for the Browns (6-7-1). They snapped an 11-game losing streak to the Broncos (6-8).Improving to 3-28 on the road over the last four seasons Authentic Zach Cunningham Jersey , the Browns still have a shot at their first winning season since 2007 and even their first playoff berth since 2002 thanks to their first win over Denver since 1990.Calloway's touchdown made it 17-13 and came with safety Justin Simmons in coverage because the Broncos were down five cornerbacks.The Broncos responded with a 13-play drive that ate up more than seven minutes, but coach Vance Joseph inexplicably sent in kicker Brandon McManus for a field goal instead of going for it on fourth-and-1 from the Cleveland 6 with 4:35 remaining.TEXANS 29, JETS 22EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) 鈥?Deshaun Watson threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to DeAndre Hopkins with 2:15 left Deshaun Watson Jersey , lifting the Houston Texans to a 29-22 comeback victory over Sam Darnold and the New York Jets on Saturday night.After Darnold and the Jets took their first lead of the game on Elijah McGuire's 2-yard touchdown run, Watson and the Texans (10-4) answered right back.A holding call on cornerback Morris Claiborne on third down prolonged the drive, and Watson completed passes of 20 and 3 yards to Demaryius Thomas and 7 yards to Hopkins to get to New York's 14. Watson then found Hopkins streaking down the left sideline and launched a pass that the receiver somehow came down with despite being tightly covered by Claiborne.Ka'imi Fairbairn's 40-yard field goal made it 29-22 with 54 seconds left. Darnold and the Jets (4-10) had one more opportunity to try to tie 鈥?or win 鈥?but Houston held on.
