HOUSTON - The Houston Texans have already won more games than they did in last years dreadful 2-14 season. Justin Reid Texans Jersey .While theyre happy with their 3-1 start, theyre still looking to do much more, especially with a matchup with in-state rival Dallas coming up Sunday.We have a lot of things that we want to make sure that we continue to improve upon, defensive end J.J. Watt said. We have some other things that we want to really get going. There is always things, even that you do well, that you want to make sure you continue to do better.Watt was chosen AFC defensive player of the week on Wednesday. Watt led the way in Houstons 23-17 win over Buffalo on Sunday with an 80-yard interception return for a touchdown, five tackles and a career-high nine hits on quarterback E.J. Manuel. His interception return was the longest by a defensive lineman in more than 15 years.Watt, who started his college career as a tight end before moving to defence, has two touchdowns this year after also grabbing a TD pass in Week 2.But, as usual, the overachiever isnt satisfied.Every single day is a new challenge, he said. Its a lot of fun. Thats what makes it so fun. Every day you come in and you find something new to work on.Watts big game helped make up for a tough day by the offence. Ryan Fitzpatrick threw two interceptions and the team managed a season-low 37 yards rushing.We have yet to play even close to our best football, especially as an offence, left tackle Duane Brown said. We feel like our defence has really played its tail off and we have to match that, and I think once were firing on all cylinders well be a great team and well be hard to stop.Even though the Texans are looking to up their game, theyre also encouraged theyve been able to get out to such a good start despite struggling in several areas.Without a doubt, but you cant hang your hat on that, cornerback Johnathan Joseph said. Because if you dont fix those problems, somewhere down the line it will come back to haunt you and cost you a game.Fitzpatrick, in his first year in Houston, has struggled the past two weeks after a solid start this season. His five interceptions have all come in the last two games and are tied for most in the league. Coach Bill OBrien has talked often about putting Fitzpatrick in better positions to be successful, but the quarterback wont place blame for his trouble on anyone but himself.Ive got to get a lot better, he said. Every week its almost like a broken record, but the consistency, its just got to get better ... if I look at the first four games and how theyve gone, were 3-1 and thats not too bad, but my level of play has got to pick up.This week hell face a Dallas defence that is allowing more than 271 yards passing a game, seventh most in the league. But the group picked off Drew Brees once in a 38-17 win over Saints last week, and the Cowboys also recovered two fumbles in the victory.Theyve created a bunch of turnovers, Fitzpatrick said. Theyve been an opportunistic defence this year. You really see them flying around and playing fast (and) that jumps out at you when you watch the tape.___AP NFL websites: and Jordan Akins Jersey . The CFL club is making the move after holding its camp and regular-season practices at the University of Toronto campus in Mississauga, Ont. Jordan Akins Texans Jersey . So it was understandable if he was a little shaky early in his return to the Texas Rangers rotation. He spent most of the outing searching for his best stuff, but still managed to shut down the struggling Minnesota Twins offence. . The Italian side scored twice in a four-minute span in the second half to defeat former stars from S.TORONTO -- Rudy Gay skipped shootaround Friday morning, choosing to stay in bed in hopes of beating the flu bug. But by the time the game started, the Toronto Raptors forward felt even worse. And, for three quarters, it showed as Gay shot a woeful three-for-13 from the field. However, he had 11 points in the final 12 minutes of play as Toronto used a dominant fourth quarter to defeat the Washington Wizards 96-88 to remain in first place in the Atlantic Division. Toronto trailed Washington 70-66 heading into the final quarter, but Gay hit all three field goal attempts in the fourth and added five free throws to lead the Raptors to victory. "There was no stopping me. I was going to play," said Gay. "I was out of breath and the sort of things that happen when youre sick but I had to push through it for my team. "In the fourth quarter, I just let it come to me and it got a lot easier." Gays 11-point fourth quarter gave him 17 for the night, tied for team high with DeMar DeRozan, as Toronto (6-7) won for the second straight time to stay atop the NBAs Atlantic Division. "He struggled a little bit early but when it was down the stretch, he came through for us," head coach Dwane Casey said of Gay, who was booed in the third quarter by the 18,671 in attendance for his poor shooting performance and a couple of turnovers. "He was a little weak from the flu but he gutted it out. "He could have easily mailed it in or checked out but he fought through it and gave us 17 big points." Toronto scored the first nine points of the fourth quarter to wrest the lead back from Washington. The Raptors outscored the Wizards 21-9 over the opening 7:34 of the final period and 30-18 overall. It was a dramatic turnaround from the third quarter when the Wizards (4-8) outscored Toronto 32-15, turning a 13-point halftime deficit into a four-point lead going into the final quarter. Waashington point guard John Wall, who had a game-high 37 points, scored 18 in the quarter. Aaron Colvin Jersey. "Teams are going to go on runs," said Toronto forward Tyler Hansbrough, who had eight points and six rebounds off the bench. "As we continue to grow, we cant have lapses where it carries over and have a hangover until the fourth quarter. "Weve got to keep on moving and thats what happened." The Raptors, who shot 47 per cent from the field on the night, featured a balanced attack, with six players finishing with double figures in points. Jonas Valanciunas had 11 points and 13 rebounds. "Third quarter, we have to figure that out sooner or later," said guard Kyle Lowry, who had 12 points, nine assists and six rebounds on the night. "(But) that group that came in in the fourth did a great job getting us a 10-point lead. "They (Wizards) made a run at the end but we closed it out." Toronto returned to Air Canada Centre to open a four-game homestand -- their longest of the season -- leading the division for the first time since they won it in 2007. And the Raptors came out flying, shooting an eye-popping 67 per cent from the field in the first quarter to take a five-point lead, which they widened to a 13-point edge at halftime. It appeared the Raptors were on the way to an easy victory before Wall, the first overall draft pick in the 2010 NBA draft, who signed a five-year, US$80 million contract extension in July, went off. "You can see why he got paid all that money," De Rozan said. "Hes definitely a heck of a player. "He has the passion to win and he showed that in the third quarter to try and bring his team back. "We had to withstand that as much as we could and get the win." The Raptors return to action Tuesday hosting Brooklyn before closing out the homestand with games against Miami and Denver.
