Good win to open the season, that defense was nasty in the 2nd half. #Texans & fans should be pleased with that performance— Daniel Gotera (@DTGoteraKHOU) September 11, 2016
The @HoustonTexans have a 100-yard receiver (W. Fuller V - 107) and rusher (L. Miller - 103) for the 1st time since Week 3 of last season.— Texans PR (@TexansPR) September 11, 2016
Very impressive how Fuller has responded after drop, could have folded as a rookie in 1st game but focused & has had a monster game.— Daniel Gotera (@DTGoteraKHOU) September 11, 2016

A look at the game's inactives
Osweiler ready for Texans debut, but Watt could be limited
The Associated Press
New quarterback Brock Osweiler has undoubtedly upgraded the Houston Texans' offense as they prepare for Sunday's season opener against the Chicago Bears.
The question for the Texans is whether star defensive end J.J. Watt will be slowed by back surgery that kept him out all of training camp and from each of Houston's preseason games. Watt returned to practice this week after recovering from the procedure to repair a herniated disk, and insists he's feeling great and is ready to go . He expects the coaching staff to try to limit his snaps on Sunday, but vowed to fight against such a plan.

"I am going to try and play every single play," he said. "I am going to play as hard as I possibly can ... obviously I have fresh legs right now. I'm going to carry this through the season."
Watt was voted the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year for the second straight season after leading the league with 17 1/2 sacks in 2015. His performance helped Houston reach the playoffs for the first time since 2012, but a 30-0 loss to Kansas City in the wild-card round made it clear that the Texans needed an upgrade at quarterback.
They believe they found that in Osweiler, who started seven games for Denver last season before being benched for the playoffs in favor of Peyton Manning. Osweiler is comfortable in Houston and believes his preparation will keep any jitters at bay in his debut for the Texans.
"There's no nerves," he said. "I believe if you prepare the correct way, what do you have to be nervous about? You've already played the game all week long. Now you just need to go connect the dots on Sunday."
