You're assuming the few defensive woes we have can all be laid at the feet of the Defense. It just isn't so.
If the Texans Offense could generate long drives and points, it changes the calculus of the opposing team's gameplan. As it stands right now, the Texans Defense is losing hope and motivation with the Offense laying (goose) eggs.
When you don't score a TD for more than 6 quarters, there's damn little your Defense can do
