Later in the game the Texans showed the same look, got the same D alignment and torched them for a long bomb. It was set up by what they saw on the scripted play.
Last year, in the Atlanta game, they had a 4th and 1 early in the game. They were going for it, but IIRC, false start killed the play. They kicked a field goal. Later in the game, they came back with the exact same formation, maybe even play because they knew how ATL was going to defend it, and Foster scored a TD.
