No, you're wrong. The Texans have won with a complete effort for the most part. When they've won the offense has scored and the defense has held. Both sides have put each other in a position to succeed. The offense gets out ahead early and the defense can pin their ears back. If the offense gets off to a slow start then the defense keeps us from falling behind so the offense can get the kinks worked out.
We've won because we've been balanced and a complete team. Now the offense can't hold up it's side of the bargain anymore. Certain things work well. We ran the ball well last night but clearly Kubiak got spooked with all the turnovers Yates had against Carolina and he's reigned him in considerably. With no credible passing threat our offense can't finish drives and our scoring is down. This puts the defense in a vulnerable position.
