I didn't add my posts to be an end all be all stat. I added it to remind everyone that the Texans are better on O in the red zone than the defense is, even though it appears the opposite based on the Ravens game.
If you are talking 2013 only.. That assessment is true:
Offense Red Zone TD % - 77.78%
Defense Red Zone TD % - 87.50%
But, using percentages 3 games into the season is misleading.
To get a better idea we can look at 2012:
Offense Red Zone TD % - 54.69%
Defense Red Zone TD % - 51.06%
I will not argue that either unit is playing up to their respective talent level, but the defense had a well above average game against Baltimore.
Either way.. We will see what this team is made of over the next 2 weeks.
