The Lions are an improved team - the Texans made a far greater improvement. Give the two rooks a chance to jell and after the Rook corner becomes a shutdown corner (which he will *very* soon), light a fire under the DC to let those linebackers blitz! (If he doesn't - fire him).
Personally I see the Texans making the playoffs THIS year - can't say the same for the Lions. Look at the schedule and tell me I'm wrong.
So many toys... So little time...
