Reading the coverage: Long-snapping an issue for Texans

What's going on in the AFC South? Here's a late-morning rundown.

Houston Texans

  • Gary Kubiak's record through 34 games is exactly the same as Jeff Fisher's. Good stuff from John McClain spelling out why calling for Kubiak's firing is silly.
  • Defensive coordinator Richard Smith is trying to be creative with Mario Williams, writes Dale Robertson.
  • Bryan Pittman's poor long-snapping was one reason Kubiak was a bit reluctant to kick field goals last week, according to Megan Manfull. If it's so bad as to impact what an offense can and can't do, doesn't a change have to be made?
  • Sloppiness had Kubiak concerned, writes Michael C. Wright.
  • The Texans have good history against Jacksonville, says Brooke Bentley of

Indianapolis Colts

Jacksonville Jaguars

  • Offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter was at least part serious when he guaranteed bigger plays from the passing game, writes Vito Stellino.
  • Matt Jones is different, says Tania Ganguli.
  • Reggie Nelson has a bruised knee. It's a relief it's nothing worse, but still has him day-to-day, according to Kyle G. Nelson.
