San Diego- They played better than the S.D. defense did

Houston = or > than Ravens defense
Houston > Seahawk defense
Houston < SF defense
Houston < Rams defense. Although a ST's fumble/Int TD's certianly didn't help
Houston = K.C. Defense minus Cushing.
So overall I would say the Texans defense has held up their end of the bargain. How many games have the ST's/Offense outplayed the opposing ST's/Offense this yr?
Agreed, I'm afraid that the defense will turn into the end of last yrs defense without Cushing. Mitchell just isn't good enough to hold up against double teams against the run.
