1. The Crimson Tide of the NFL: The combination of Matt Schaub's brains and Wade Phillips' defense has allowed the Houston Texans to become one of the league's most dominating teams. Dating back to last year, Schaub has won his past eight games. Houston's average margin of victory is 20 points in those games. Watching the Texans dismantle AFC teams is like watching Alabama plow through the SEC.
Doesn't really make a good connection to the Tide other than dominating opponents with a great defense, but it's a funny coincidence.
