Sometimes you have two TE's sets as well, I don't recall the Texans using this too much.
Two TE sets are great. In HS we ran an overload type play with 2 TE's on the field:

TE TE LT LG C RG RT

We even used our LT in goal line situations, so we would run a formation like this:
TE TE RT LT LG C RG

The defense has a pretty good idea of what to expect, but stopping a 305 pound ball carier with 6 blockers in front of him with 2 yards to go is pretty dang tough, even if you know it's coming.
