When you see the Texans giving up 3rd down conversion after 3rd down conversion this is indicative of what they are. This is showing you the lack of consistency that they're sufferring from. Ending drives in turnovers is a good thing but most teams (particularly most good teams) aren't going to give you a mistake you can exploit for a turnover on most drives.
The Texans need to stop more drives by forcing punts. The turnovers are nice, great even, but they've got to be able to lock a team down and keep them from getting that next ten yards if they want to win games.
YES ! When our defense starts doing this we will be contending for and making the playoffs and you can forget all the "stuff" that is spewed forth here about the offense. That will take care of itself.
