Default Potential Texans Season Records/Firsts for 2012

Thought this would be an interesting thread for people to follow as the season moves along. I'm sure others will find additional records/firsts to add to the list. Let's try to keep it to realistic, achievable records. Not things like Schaub throwing for over 4.7k yards. The season is still young but many of these are on pace to be reached/surpassed. I researched these but could have missed something so let me know if anything seems wrong and I'll fix it.

Nice to know the Texans have already accomplished something the Oilers never did, even if it is just a START to the season.

Has Balt.'s D fallen off THAT much, or is Minn. really looking THAT good? I figured the Ravens game would be our toughest game again--with the exception that I don't remember which games are at home or away...

I'm still more wary of the Ravens and Pats more than I am anyone else on our schedule. Hell, I'm much more concerned about the Ravens game than I am Green Bay.

Baltimore is giving up chunks of yardage. Had Greg Little not dropped what should have been a TD, the Browns-Ravens game may have turned out a lot different. Losing Suggs to an Achilles and Jarret Johnson to FA has put a big crimp in both the pass rush and stopping the run. And while Webb is an outstanding CB, his counterparts in Cary Williams and Jimmy Smith? Not so much. They give up way too much yardage. Reed is still Reed, but if you stay away from his side of the field you get Pollard. Who is great against the run and short passes, but is never going to stay with WR's downfield.

I guess I am used to the Ravens defense being #1, #2 or maybe #5. Not #23 (#13 rush, #29 pass).

The Vikes? Can't put my finger on it, other than just appear to be a tough team to play this year.

Texans host Ravens this year at Reliant.

They've got a pretty good coach, they'll have a lot of things fixed by the time we play them.

Baltimore is going to be a tough game.

Also, the Oilers never started 5-0. So that could be added to the notes.
