Weren’t we just talking about how the Texans were a dumpster fire?
Now Houston are winners of three straight, and tied for the lead in the AFC South. They’ve been stifling on defense, and good enough on offense. They’ll go for four straight against the Saints, who are returning from the bye and have lost two consecutive games.
The Texans defense has sparked their turnaround this season. They’ve allowed just 29 points over the last three weeks, and went ten quarters without allowing a touchdown. But the last three weeks have been against big, physical offenses, and this week presents a different challenge. Houston has struggled against the spread offense this season, and may be in trouble against a Saints team that is 2nd-best in the NFL in total offense.
The difference maker will be, of course, J.J. Watt. 7.5 of his league-high 11.5 sacks have come in the last four weeks, and his disrupting pressure may slow down Drew Brees on Sunday.
