The Houston Texans are among the worst teams in the National Football League this season. All-Pro pass rusher J.J. Watt isn’t happy.

Houston fell to 1-6 on the season following Sunday’s 35-20 loss to the Green Bay Packers. The team fired head coach/general manager Bill O’Brien following an 0-4 start, but things haven’t gotten much better since.

Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson summed up his mindset right now.

“S— sucks, honestly,” Watson told ESPN on Sunday. “I mean, this is new to me, so I’m going through it just like everyone else. This is my first time experiencing something like this, so I’m just learning on the fly, trying to stay positive, continuing to lead the guys, continuing to come to work each and every day and try to improve and just trying to find ways to win.”

Watt was far less outspoken.

Cody Bellinger is in good spirits after dislocating his shoulder during Sunday night’s National League Championship Series game.

The 25-year-old Los Angeles Dodgers player gave his team a 4-3 lead at the bottom of the seventh inning of Game 7, where he hit a pitch into right field that helped them advance to the World Series.

Upon the completion of his run around the field and his return to home plate, Bellinger celebrated with his teammates, where he smashed arms with AJ Pollock before he did the same with Kiké Hernández. There, Bellinger dislocated his shoulder.

Later in the game, Bellinger motioned to a player off-screen that his shoulder had popped out of its socket, as seen in a video shared by SportsCenter.

Ryan Fitzpatrick is leading the happiest march to obsolescence in NFL history

The Dolphins quarterback is keeping the starter’s spot warm for Tua Tagovailoa in Miami. But like so much of his career, he is doing so with style and skillWhen Miami Dolphins rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa made his NFL debut during the final drive of Sunday’s 24-0 annihilation of the New York Jets, no one appeared happier than the man he will one day replace, Ryan Fitzpatrick. The 37-year-old led the sparse home crowd in an ovation with a grin so large it almost outdid his magnificent beard. And why not? Fitzpatrick knows this is his team only temporarily.

(He also threw two interceptions, one
