It's better to combine everything on the field to come to a final conclusion.
Here's why it's a big deal and why I tried finding the stat. Coming into last week's game or the game prior, I heard a stat that the Texans D allowed 10 TDs in 11 red zone visits by opposing teams this season. That's a rather alarming number of red zone trips resulting in TDs, not the 3 out of 4 you were hoping it could mean.
Granted, the D has been working with short fields, but anyone watching this year's D can tell something is wrong. They'll play well for spurts, then just give up the booty on the next series.
With the offense, it's easy to point fingers at the QB position, RT and coaching as being piss poor, but where has our D gone? In two years...TWO YEARS, our D has gone from being dominant to a jekyl and hyde group of players who are really playing some bad ball.
