Default Re: The Texans a run-first team, I think not!

Otherwise, the run/pass ratio would still be dependent on the yard/down scenario.
I can tell you without looking it up because I've gone through this like "a million times"; there was no real tendency for the Texans on first and 10 (taken into consideration the distance to the end zone) in the first half - or on third down conversion, whatever.

Overall, they did not show their hand!
