To win most games you've got to win 2 out of 3 phases of a game. Coach Joe spots the other team the St's phase of the game every week. That means the Texans have to win on offense/defense every week. They aren't good enough on offense to win that phase of the game consistently, which explains why the Texans are 2-5.
I learned the 3 phases of the game concept listening to Bud Grant and Jimmy Johnson.
Are you suggesting that the Texans D is playing stellar football? The defense has been as big a problem as any other during this losing streak. Losing Cushing will only make it worse.
