Unfortunately the Texans run defense has shown no improvement throughout the season and currently ranks 24th overall in the NFL in run defense. Of the bottom 10 teams against the run, only one (St. Luis) has a winning record. Chris brown is currently averaging 5.6 yards per carry. The Texans are giving up 4.8 yards per carry on average.
Tennessee’s top 4 rushers are averaging 29.8 attempts per game. If they only get 4.8 yards per carry, they will carry for 143 yards against the Texans. I think 30 carries will be conservative. The Titans know that the Texans are weak against the run and will most likely pound it down their throats.
The Texans are going to have their hands full this Sunday.
