Well folks, we are halfway through the second quarter, and the first points of the board were put up by the Minnesota Vikings. Up to this point, the Houston Texans' defense had looked solid; now it looks more like it should—a game of back-up players.

Few players have impressed me thus far. Bryan Braman continues to bring pressure to the QB, and Brooks Reed is getting the respect he deserves from the Vikings offense. Dominque Barber has played well for the special teams but has otherwise played average overall.

Stay tuned for more!
