Re: Trend - giving up big plays on 3rd and long
You know what? Yeah they got exposed. No J-Jo, No Cody, No Dobbins, 4 days with no practice. Couple that with the fact Detroit had a home game last week and the Texans traveled, and still found a way to win. I remember Schaub saying a while back that if the offense started slow then the Defense would pick it up. I personally think the offense became too reliant on the D at times, and is a huge wake up call to start off faster so the D won't have to save them everytime. Rest, practice, getting J-Jo back on D will help, as well as Tate on offense to help control the time of possession.
