Texans' JJ Watt Suffers Knee Injury

Houston Texans' Whitney Mercilus celebrates after sacking Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton during the second half of an NFL football game Saturday Dec. 24 2016 in Houston

Last season a back injury robbed Houston Texans fans of the opportunity to see this giant of a man play football.

The Houston Texans have become a bit of a rival to the Kansas City Chiefs over the years.

Alex Smith: Smith completed 29 of 37 passes for 324 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. The injury is bad enough that one reporter says the defensive end will be out for the season.

That said, this is less about some sort of hot streak than it is a combination of forces that have bubbled up the best in Smith and established a mind-set that isn't going away. They flipped him onto his back and were looking at his left leg. It's got to be the next guy up mentality you've got to always have ... West said. "We all know the situation here. So we've got to find a way to regroup because we've got a lot of season left". The Texans' overall numbers going into Week 5 were pretty good, but outside of the one-dimensional prolific passing Patriots, they hadn't seen an attack as risky and complete as that of the Chiefs.

Deshaun Watson was incredible once again, with five TD passes.

You could tell by his reaction Watt was in distress. Each victory this season has been a bit different, whether it's been a result of Hunt and wide receiver Tyreek Hill running circles around the opposing defense, linebacker Justin Houston obliterating an offensive line or Kelce making big plays and subsequently dancing in the end zone.

In the past two weeks against Tennessee and Kansas City, the Texans Pro Bowl receiver has recorded 159 yards receiving on 14 catches and scored four of his five touchdowns this year. "But, with that being said, just knowing him and knowing the type of guy that he is, he's an fantastic human being. Obviously he's a guy that whether J.J. and Whitney were there or not, he's a guy that we really rely on to play at a high level, and that's not going to change".

"So it's kind of a good marriage right there".

As for the Houston vs. Kansas City preview, the ESPN matchup predictor gives Chiefs a 60.5 percent chance at winning this game. But Smith has reacted to that with a career season, and he's gotten his name firmly in the MVP conversation because of it.

Hunt didn't make much of a difference in the game, even though he still finished with 107 rushing yards.
