Houston Texans quarterback Brock Osweiler said a green laser that was shined onto the field and into his eyes


Houston Texans quarterback Brock Osweiler said a green laser that was shined onto the field and into his eyes during the Texans’ 27-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders in Mexico City was “very distracting.”

Throughout the game, someone in the stadium shined what appeared to be a green laser pointer on the field when the Texans were on offense.

Coach Bill O’Brien was less than pleased with the officiating in the Texans’ 27-20 loss Monday night to the Raiders in Mexico City.

After hanging with the Raiders through three quarters, the Texans came undone in the fourth on Monday night in Mexico City.

Prescott added 9.3 more points to his team’s scoring margin than an average QB would have with the same number of plays, the largest contribution of any QB in Week 11. On the season, Prescott leads the league with 48 QB points added, which is a stat that generally correlates with MVP voting.

Remember when Cousins took off at the end of last season and led the Washington Redskins to the playoffs? Well, he looked a lot like that poised QB Sunday night against the Packers.

Smith gained positive expected points (EPA) on 77 percent of his plays on Sunday, the second-highest rate for a QB in a game this season (Dak Prescott, 83 percent versus Chicago in Week 3). Put simply, more than three-fourths of his plays contributed to the team’s scoring margin, given the context and situation.

Smith’s biggest play was his 11-yard scramble for a touchdown in the second quarter, which added 3.3 EPA and was the biggest EPA play for a QB in Week 11. Because of that play, Smith entered halftime with a 99.4 Total QBR, and despite a drop-off in the second half, his overall per-play efficiency was among the best in Week 11.
