    Texans' Brian Hoyer: Nightmare performance in loss to Chiefs

    Hoyer endured a horrendous performance in Saturday's Divisional Round loss to the Chiefs, connecting on just 15 of 34 passes with no touchdowns, four interceptions and a pair of fumbles (one lost). The veteran picked an inopportune time to have his worst outing of the season, as he registered his lowest yardage total in a game he completed and threw multiple interceptions for the first time, after totaling just seven in the previous 11 starts. Hoyer's turnovers included a crucial interception near the goal line as Houston tried to cut the Chiefs' lead to six, and he could never establish any consistency against their ferocious defense. This nightmare performance likely finished off any chance Hoyer had of heading into next season as the starter, and the Texans will likely be in the market for a quarterback this offseason.

    Texans' Brian Hoyer: Leads Texans to postseason with victory over Jags

    Hoyer completed 25 of 40 passes for 249 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Sunday's win over the Jaguars. The veteran returned from a two-game absence due to lingering concussion symptoms, and Houston made his job a bit easier by leaning on the defense and ground game in the division-clinching win. Hoyer showed the ability to effectively lead the offense when healthy this season, and Sunday's return bodes well for his the franchise's upcoming return to the playoffs. It is unclear whether the Texans plan to roll with Hoyer into next season, but his play in the postseason could go a long way in determining that.

    Texans' Brian Hoyer: Out of concussion protocol and set to start

    Coach Bill O'Brien confirmed Wednesday that Hoyer is out of the NFL's concussion protocol and will start at QB for the Texans on Sunday against the Jaguars. For his part, Hoyer noted Wednesday that he feels "great" and has no reservations about playing this weekend, in a game in which the 8-7 Texans would clinch a playoff spot with a win. As it is, however, the Colts have only a slight chance to overtake the Texans for the AFC South crown, with the odds thus strongly in favor of Hoyer and company seeing postseason action when the Week 17 dust settles.
