The Baltimore Ravens have lost another piece of their 2013 Super Bowl champion team. Safety Ed Reed signed a three-year, $15-million deal with the Houston Texans on Friday. "I know already what they want to do and that's win a championship. I came here to do that,” Reed said. “Houston already has the attributes. I pray and hope I am the attribute needed to take us to the next level.” Reed, 34, made $7.2 million with the Ravens, who, since winning the Super Bowl, have had Ray Lewis retire, traded receiver Anquan Boldin to the 49ers and have lost linebackers Paul Kruger (Cleveland)

" Now I know that you might think the Texans did not exist back in 1961. And neither did the AFC for that matter. But if you can't believe an Old Navy T-shirt, what can you believe?

Buffalo Bills defensive end Mario Williams returned to Houston on Sunday and was booed. The former Texans star found that flattering. "It was great," Williams told the Buffalo News after the 21-9 Texans win. "The biggest thing for me is, if you go out and make a play and get booed, I know I'm in your heart. That's the most important thing. If it'd been quiet, then I would've felt something different. I know you're thinking about me. " Next week's NFL games feature other intriguing reunions, including Tampa Bay Buccaneers receiver Vincent Jackson facing his former San Diego Chargers teammates; Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley drawing up a game plan against the Kansas City Chiefs, the team that fired him as head coach last season; and the Seattle Seahawks' Pete Carroll facing the New York Jets' Mark Sanchez, the USC quarterback he tried to persuade to stay in school.

Detroit Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh's reputation for being a dirty player was called into question again on Thanksgiving during a game against the Houston Texans. Suh was rushing Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub when he was blocked and tripped over offensive lineman Derek Newton. As you can see in the video above, Suh kicked out at Schaub's groin area as he fell to the ground. But was it intentional? It's hard to tell by watching the video, but Suh's reputation makes it hard to believe otherwise.
