The Houston Texans are making their first appearance on Sunday Night Football this season, so I made another attempt to put J.J. Watt's dominance in some recent and historical perspective. Naturally, he now has a cast on his left hand/wrist and did not practice on Thursday.

The Wall Street Journal has put together a cool toy that shows every head coach in NFL history, linking them with the coaches they worked under as assistants, as well as their own assistants who went on to become head coaches themselves.
Twelve assistants under Bill Walsh would later take on head coaching jobs. Though Walsh is often cited as the gold standard when it comes to coaching trees, it's worth noting that Marty Schottenheimer and Bill Parcells also saw a dozen assistants graduate to head jobs.

Less than a year after signing a three-year deal worth up to $18 million in free agency, cornerback Cary Williams has been released by the Seattle Seahawks, according to Curtis Crabtree at KJR radio in Seattle. Williams was benched two weeks ago after making a mental mistake against San Francisco, and was a healthy inactive the past two weeks against Pittsburgh and Minnesota.

In advance of the Steelers playing the Colts, this week's NBC piece looks at Antonio Brown. ICYMI, he's really good and does a lot of things really well, though Todd Haley may be calling too many wide receiver screens.
