Bill O'Brien gets some face-time

Bill O'Brien is not a camera hog.

But he's on camera more than most NFL head coaches.

The Wall Street Journal published an article Wednesday morning documenting the amount of cutaway shots each head coach and quarterback got during a game broadcast. The publication watched two games from the 2014 season, per team, and the Texans' head coach was 11th out of the Leauge's 32

coaches. O'Brien was shown an average of 31.5 times per game.

San Francisco's Jim Harbaugh was shown an NFL-high 45.5 times per game, with New England's Bill Belichick right behind him at 44.5 times a broadcast. Mike McCarthy from Green Bay was only shown 13.5 times a game, ranking him 32nd overall.

Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, meanwhile, came in at 28th on the list with 9.5 cutaways per contest. Peyton Manning leads the QB category with 31 shots per game.
