We all have our own opinions on how reliable Pro Football Focus is as a way to grade football players' performances. Nonetheless, it is interesting to see what they have to say. Here are the highlights from their recap and grades for various Texans in the win over the Chiefs.

Brock Osweiler, 56.5

While Osweiler threw two interceptions, neither was an awful throw or decision.

Although he was pressured on just six snaps, he did not complete any of his four passes against a heavy rush, took two sacks and threw one of his interceptions.

Top offensive grades:

DeAndre Hopkins, 86.8

It didn't matter if it was Marcus Peters or Phillip Gaines guarding him — Hopkins was still getting his. He ripped theChiefs' best defensive backs for seven receptions on 11 targets and 113 yards and a score.

Derek Newton, 77.0

"Houston also had solid production from its tackles, as Clark did not allow any pressures in pass protection while Newton was the only positively graded run-blocker on the Texans' offensive line.

Will Fuller, 76.9

Chris Clark, 73.7

Lamar Miller, 71.0

Top defensive grades:

John Simon, 85.1

Whitney Mercilus, 81.9

A.J. Bouye, 81.3

"[Bouye] notched a pressure to go with yielding just two receptions on five targets for six yards."

Vince Wilfork, 80.6

"Houston’s defensive front seven notched five sacks and 10 pressures to along with 15 total stops and no missed tackles."

Kevin Johnson, 80.3
