Tillman Picks Texans to Super Bowl, See's Watt's Return...

Fox Sports 1 analyst, and ABC 13's Inside the Game Co-Host, Spencer Tillman sees a lot of good things coming out of NRG on Kirby. With Romeo Crennel's 3-4 D, the pressure is coming from all over the place. In light of Scarlett's injury and Cole being on the IR, Jacob Martin is seizing the opportunity and Tillman believes he is a great addition on the outside edge with tremendous speed. The Texans have shored up the secondary with the return of Bradley Roby, and are seeing great linebacker play out of the Swat Team, Benardrick McKinney and Zach Cunningham.

Spencer also sees the Texans high powered offense, with tremendous quarterback play and Watson's use of all of the tools in the toolbox, starting to fire on all cylinders. If the Texans can play at a high level to finish the season, and with what he believes as a realistic chance of JJ Watt retuning as early as round one of the playoffs, Tillman thinks the Texans, sitting at 8-4, can make a legitimate run for a Super Bowl appearance.

Here's a segment of our interview with Spencer, as we break down the Texans' win over the Patriots, talk about the rise of the Ravens and the Forty-Niners and the potential return of JJ Watt.

If a person isn't a real Houstonian until they have favorite places for staple foods like burgers and Tex-Mex, then Astros pitcher Justin Verlander has officially embraced his new home.

In an interview that occurred during the Thursday, August 11 broadcast of the Astros game against the Texas Rangers, YouTube announcer Scott Braun asked Verlander if he found any food in Houston that he couldn't get in Detroit.

"I like Nancy's Hustle's burger," the pitching ace replied.

Indeed, what's not to like? The Nancy's burger — a double patty cheeseburger with chopped onions, pickles, and aioli on a housemade brioche English muffin — has been a staple since the restaurant opened in late 2017. Here it is, as captured by Houston food influencer Abbas Dhanani.

Beyond its deliciousness, Verlander's affection for the burger makes a certain amount of logistical sense. The EaDo restaurant is only about a mile from Minute Maid Park, and it stays open until 11 pm, making it a perfect post-game treat.

Nancy's co-owner Sean Jensen tells CultureMap that he and chef-owner Jason Vaughan consider Verlander and his wife, supermodel Kate Upton, to be regulars. "They have always been supporters and super nice when they visit," he writes in an email.
