The Leftovers: December games, D'Onta Foreman, Goal line options, more

Texans fans on Facebook sent in questions for Drew Dougherty. He answered a few in the video above, and many more in the article below.

Gabe Marquez: Dear Drew do you think the Texans will run the table and get a 1st-round bye?
DD: Whoa, whoa, whoa. I love an 8-game win streak just as much as anyone else, but let's slow down a little and focus on beating the Browns. They're playing really well and are going to be a challenge. But sure: anything's possible the way the Texans are playing right now.

Brandon McLaughlin: Dear Drew, Will we see D’Onta Foreman either next week in the lineup when we face the Colts, or the following week against the Jets?
DD: I suppose there's always a chance. But if he's not been added to the 53-man roster before the Colts game, he won't be out there against the Jets. The Texans have another week before they have to make the decision to place him on Reserve/Injured (IR) or the 53-man roster.

Steve Hicks: Dear Drew, When is the memorial service for Mr.McNair?
DD: A week from Friday, inside NRG Stadium at 2 p.m. The details are HERE.

Jorge Mendoza: Dear Drew, Why do you never answer my questions?
DD: Ask away, Jorge...

James Garcia: Dear Drew, Keep rubbing that bald head!! Follow me here, since we beat the Titans and the Titans destroyed the Patriots who beat the Chiefs shouldn’t that make us the top seed? Should the league and pundits finally start showing our Texans respect?
DD: Haha, thanks James. Nah, the seedings are based on record, and the Chiefs/Patriots both have better records than the Texans...for now.

Andrew Chase Turlington: Dear Drew, 0-3 when wearing my Watson Jersey. 8-0 When wearing my Andre Johnson Jersey. Can you get me a Ring when we continue and go 15-0 or 16-0 to a championship?? I’m not superstitious but I am a littlestitous.
DD: Keep wearing that #80, then. I'll see what I can do.

Manuel Flores: Dear Drew, Could this be the greatest season in Texans franchise history?
DD: It could...but we're still a long way from all that. Ask me again in mid-February.

Andrew Bowyer: Dear Drew, How can we get fans of other teams to stop calling us garbage?
DD: Win it all. Plus, who cares? Seriously: why do you care about other teams' fans? Just keep having fun watching your team win. Focus on that.

Jonathon Lovil: DEAR DREW, CAN YOU TELL O'BRIEN THAT AFTER GETTING A LEAD TO NOT BE SO CONSERVATIVE AND KEEP THE GAS ON THE PEDAL SO MY BLOOD PRESSURE WONT RISE IN THE 2ND HALF?
DD: IF HE WAS SO CONSERVATIVE, THEN HOW DID THE TEXANS THROW A TOUCHDOWN PASS IN THE FOURTH QUARTER?

Shannon Budaus: Dear Drew, What is the highest record for fan assist at a Texans home game?
DD: Great question, Shannon. I checked with my main man Kenny Perkins, and he said the number was 6. We love it when the Texans crowd gets loud and forces a delay of game penalty, or a false start. Let's beat that 6 number, and soon!

Willis Odika: Dear Uncle Drew, What is your earliest memory of Robert McNair? #RIP #RCM
DD: Willis, I really don't remember my earliest one, but my fondest came when he appeared in "On the Nose with Shaun Cody". I wrote about that and a few more things HERE.

Chris Royal: Dear Drew, Has DeAndre Carter gotten more practice reps at WR during this current Keke Coutee injury concern and will his role increase on Sunday?
DD: Good question, Chris. The Texans didn't practice Tuesday, and had a jog-through on Wednesday. I imagine Carter got, and will get, some work at receiver. He's been dynamite as a returner so far with the Texans. But Bill O'Brien said Tuesday that Coutee was "day-to-day" and trending toward being able to go against the Browns.

Adrian Medina: Dear Drew, The Texans have done real good progressing and improving every week, but when will O’Brien open up the playbook and hit opposing teams with plays they haven’t ran?
DD: Yes. He's maintained since he took the job in early January of 2014 that the Texans are a game-plan offense. That means they look at what opposing defenses do, and tailor the game-plan each week to target matchups they think they can exploit.

Ramiro Rodriguez: Dear Drew, Is that going to be the answer in the red zone for us now, if they try to double up DeAndre Hopkins, then Demaryius Thomas will make them pay, or vice versa?
DD: 'The' answer, no. 'An' answer, certainly. The Texans now have a good group of weapons for Deshaun Watson, Thomas included. The tight ends all have unique skillsets, too.

The Houston Texans Cheerleaders performed and celebrated an incredible win over the Titans.
