The Texans got a huge day out of Carlos Hyde as he set a career high and helped Houston take a commanding lead in the AFC South.

Hyde rumbled for the score there, his lone one of the day, but all day had nice runs. He had 46 yards in the first half helping the Texans a ton on their second scoring drive. He carried five times on the drive with carries of seven yards and two carries of six yards. Deshaun Watson would finish off that drive.

In the second half, Hyde was again helping the Texans in the red zone. He bounced a play outside that looked dead to get the Texans a first down. Watson would toss an interception but on the ensuing drive Hyde would have the above rush to finish it out and get the score.

Hyde has now rushed for over 1,000 yards for the first time in his career. He also has a career high in yards per attempt. Not bad for a player the Texans added via trade for a player they were going to cut.

One of the surprising elements to come out of Astros Fan Fest over the weekend was Jeff Bagwell's role speaking with the media about the state of the team. The Astros have three assistant general managers that were asked to speak, all declined, leaving Bagwell to answer all the questions.

Plus, when Jose Abreu spoke at Fan Fest about signing with the club, he thanked Jim Crane, and wait for it, Jeff Bagwell.

The Astros are expected to hire a GM, and we've been seeing reports about interviews taking place. But will Bagwell remain as the mouthpiece of the organization, acting as a buffer between the new GM and owner Jim Crane?

Check out the video above as the guys from The Wheelhouse lay it all out!
