Houston Chronicle - about 1 year
Former Texans director of college scouting Mike Maccagnan and former Texans interim head coach and defensive coordinator Wade Phillips were honored by the Pro Football Writers of America. Maccagnan was named the PFWA Executive of the Year and Phillips shared NFL Assistant Coach of the Year with new Cleveland Browns coach Hue Jackson.

Huffington Post - about 1 year
  The NFL's wacky wild-card weekend is in the books, and for those who need a quick refresher, it was an unprecedented couple of days. For the first time in playoff history, all four road teams won in either a wild-card or a divisional round. Two of those teams, Seattle and Pittsburgh, needed nothing short of a miracle to move on. The other two, Green Bay and Kansas City, were flat-out dominant against the wildly overmatched Washington and Houston.  With that in mind, here are the key factors to each game in round two. Kansas City at New England -- 4:35 p.m. EST, Saturday (CBS) The last time these two met was a Week 4 battle last season in which Tom Brady endured one of the worst losses of his career while throwing for a measly 159 yards and two picks. You know what came next. Expect something much different this Saturday, but don't rule out Andy Reid, whose red-hot Chiefs have rattled off 11 straight wins to become the first 1-5 team in 45 years to make the playoffs. ...
