Angry Pass interference & blatant referee bias against the Texans!

Now, I'm not one to ever buy into the whole biased referee conspiracy theory (even though Sportscenter constantly reminds us that Jerry Rice gets a "free pass" because of his HoF career, whatever)...I've always assumed that we get some good calls, some bad calls, but it evens out at the end of the day.

but, during the radio gamecast, Andre and Mark were saying that the Browns defensive pass interference call WAS THE FIRST FOR A TEXANS OPPONENT THIS YEAR (against us)!!!

WTF?!? Where can I get facts about this? Is there an NFL stats site that can confirm this?

If true, that means that our offense had more pass interference calls against it than opposing defenses!!!

And if true, is the league really trying to say that through 15 GAMES, with a Pro Bowl WR (AJ), that opposing defenses have NEVER committed pass interference against us?!?

Heck, they even called an offensive interference call against AJ on Sunday, when it was CLEAR AS DAY that he was going for the ball!

Man, if this stat is true, then I have to admit that there is definitely some kind of blind bias AGAINST our Texans! There is just no way to justify this stat against the law of averages!

Somebody please tell me this stat is wrong and our announcers were drunk...my mind just can't grasp the nature of this truth!
