Default Texans and Titans: the numbers

ESPN ranks us at 17th after last week, which is about right. I would say we belong somewhere in the middle of the pack as far as NFL teams go. They rank the Titans at 12th.

So, on to the numbers for this week.

Offense

Texans 347 ypg, 91 rushing ypg, 256 passing ypg, 22 points pg
Titans 309 ypg, 132 rushing ypg, 177 passing ypg, 18 points pg

Defense

Texans 333 ypg, 119 rushing ypg, 214 passing ypg, 23 points pg
Titans 292 ypg, 91 rushing ypg, 200 passing ypg, 20 points pg

It looks like they can run on us and we can pass on them. The Texans score four more points a game than the Titans do, but we give up three more points a game than they do. On paper, we have a very slight edge. They have the home field advantage.

We need to take this game. As Captain Kirk would say, I need you, badly.

It'll come down to - oh no! - turnovers again. They give it away a lot like we do. Interestingly, of our 14 fumbles, only 4 have been on rushes.

I actually like our chances against Young more than I did against Collins. Young is a turnover machine. If we execute (which we probably wont), our defense should have some fun with him.

Default Re: Texans and Titans: the numbers

How many times did we turn the ball over to them last time.....6? It's a wonder that we even had a chance in that game. Protect the football, and I like our chances against alot of teams. Gonna be hard to run up the gut this weekend that's for sure. I think the line favors the Titans by 4, and that's about right considering we are playing there.
