HOUSTON --?Texans?head coach Bill OBrien will now call plays on offense after taking those duties away from offensive coordinator George Godsey, a source told ESPNs Adam Schefter, confirming multiple reports. Authentic Marcus Allen Jersey .OBrien, who called plays during his first season with the team in 2014, gave the duty to Godsey last year. On Friday, OBrien wouldnt confirm that hes taken over play-calling duties, only saying that nothing has changed.Im in charge of every play that goes into the game, OBrien said. Youd be amazed at how many defensive calls Ive made, how many special teams calls Ive made and how many offensive calls Ive made in the years that Ive been here. And most of them havent worked, let me put it to you that way. So it doesnt matter who calls the plays. Its about the execution, its about going out there and playing good football.As a head football coach, thats what youre paid to do -- to be making sure that the calls that go into the game are basically approved by you as the head football coach. So none of that matters. I dont even know why thats a story. Its not a story. Nothing has changed.The Texans added offense this offseason, signing quarterback Brock Osweiler, running back Lamar Miller and drafting wide receiver Will Fuller in the first round.Through three games, the Texans, coming off a 27-0 loss to the New England Patriots, have scored only three touchdowns. Houston has also struggled in the red zone, scoring one touchdown in seven tries this season.After the loss to the Patriots, OBrien said he thought the coaching staff had a good plan coming in, but the offense did not execute well.?We really have to go back as a coaching staff and really look at what we did, learn from it, and try to fix it, OBrien said. We really need to put our heads together and get after it and get better for the next game, no doubt about it.The Texans next play the?Tennessee Titans, with whom they are tied with an NFL-low 42 points this season. Houston ranks 24th in the league in total offense. Steelers Jerseys China . Catch all the action on TSN2 at 11pm et/8pm pt. The nine-time Big 12 champion Jayhawks are positioning themselves for another title, as they have run out to a flawless 6-0 mark in conference play thus far. Authentic Terrell Edmunds Jersey . "Four now," Carl Gunnarsson told the Leaf Report proudly following a 5-2 victory over New York on Tuesday night, the clubs fifth straight at home. http:///...aylen-samuels-jersey . Andrew Luck lost his favourite target and the Indianapolis locker room lost one of its most revered leaders when Reggie Wayne was diagnosed Monday with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee that will cost him the rest of the season.PHOENIX - The Miami Marlins managed three hits off the Arizona Diamondbacks. Two of them were booming home runs off the bat of Giancarlo Stanton. That was the difference in the Marlins 3-2 victory on Monday night, the Diamondbacks fourth loss in a row. Patrick Corbin, trying to become the first left-handed starter in 35 years to go 10-0, allowed two hits through eight innings but gave up a soaring, two-run homer to left by Stanton that tied the game at 2 in the sixth. Stantons line-drive home run to right off ex-Marlin Heath Bell (2-1) in the ninth put Miami ahead for the first time. It was the 100th homer of his career, and sixth in 43 at-bats at Chase Field. "He took that thing over, didnt he?" Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "Yeah, that was an impressive, impressive night for him." Stanton, activated June 10 after six weeks on the disabled list with a right hamstring strain, said both were good pitches. "Just help the team win, man," Stanton said. "Thats what I didnt do all April and obviously all May I wasnt playing." Redmond said he expected an adjustment period for Stanton when he came off the DL. "And there really wasnt," the manager said. "He came off the DL swinging the bat great. You could just see he was more confident. His swing was better, everything was better. Hes been lights out ever since." Bell pitched all of last season for Miami, and Stanton was asked if his familiarity with the relievers pattern helped him in the at bat. "Yeah," Stanton said, "for the most part." Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said its time to reassess how to pitch to Stanton. "The guy is swinging the bat good. We have to find a better way to get around him," Gibson said. "You can see how strong he is. He just barrelled it." Mike Dunn (2-1) threw a scoreless eighth inning to get the win. Steve Cishek pitched a perfect ninth for his 10th save in 12 tries. Willie Bloomquist flied out to deep centre to end the game. Paul Goldschmidt drove in both Arizona runs with a homer and a single. Corbin, with no decisions in his last three starts, was trying to become the first left-handed starter to begin the season 10-0 since Ron Guidry went 13-0 for the New York Yankees in 1978, according to STATS. Authentic Chukwuma Okorafor Jersey. Corbin struck out seven and walked one but the Diamondbacks lost for the first time in his 14 starts. Gibson said Corbin deserved better. "Patrick was great," Gibson said. "He pitched his heart out, two runs. We scored eight runs in four games. ... We should have had several runs tonight. We are in a bad spot at the plate right now. Guys are trying to do too much. " Arizona was 1 for 12 with runners in scoring position. "More of the same," Gibson said. Goldschmidt, hitless in his previous 12 at-bats and just 3 for 33, lined Jacob Turners 1-0 pitch over the right-field fence to put Arizona up 1-0 in the third, his 16th home run. The Diamondbacks made it 2-0 in the fifth when Gerardo Parra singled, stole second and scored when Goldschmidt singled sharply to centre. Goldschmidt leads the NL with 61 RBIs. Corbin, meanwhile, was cruising through five. Only two Miami batters reached during that span, Stanton on third baseman Martin Prados two-out error in the first and a two-out walk to Marcell Ozuna in the fourth. In the sixth, pinch-hitter Justin Ruggiano grounded out, but Juan Pierres opposite-field single to left ended the no-hit bid. Ed Lucas popped out but Stanton hit a high drive on Corbins 2-0 pitch into the second deck above the Arizona bullpen in left and it was tied at 2. The Diamondbacks, swept in three games at San Diego last weekend, opened a six-game homestand. Turner allowed two runs and six hits in five innings. NOTES: Diamondbacks RHP Ian Kennedy dropped his appeal and began serving a 10-game suspension for his role in last weeks brawl with the Dodgers. ... Arizona RHP Randall Delgado, who came over from Atlanta in the Justin Upton trade, will be recalled from Triple-A Reno to start Tuesday night in the spot normally taken by RHP Brandon McCarthy. Miami RHP Nathan Eovaldi, out all season with right shoulder inflammation, will make his first start of the year. To make room for Eovaldi, the Marlins optioned Ozuna to Double-A Jacksonville. ... McCarthy, out with a shoulder injury, threw off a mound and could get a rehab start next. McCarthy says a seizure, related to the head injury he sustained from a line drive last September, will not affect his comeback. ' ' 'he offseason.
