Default -Looking Forward- Texans vs Raiders 11/17/13

So the Texans next match-up is with the Oakland Raiders. Some stats:

Offense (PPG)
Texans 18.9 (27th)
Oakland 18.4 (29th)

Offense (YPG)
Texans 376.2 (9th)
Oakland 330.8 (18th)

Defense (PPG)
Texans 27.6 (28th)
Oakland 24.8 (21st)

Defense (YPG)
Texans 280 (1st)
Oakland 345.4 (16th)

So the Texans do two things fairly well. They gain lots of yards on offense (But score low in points) and they are stingy with yards on defense. Points on defense, yeah, that number is skewed by offensive turnovers that have been for 6 (Of which we added one more to that total last night). That being said, you really cannot deny the defense is not playing as well as it has in the previous two seasons. JJ Watt is still a madman, but we're missing Cushing again, and the role players aren't really making as much impact on the game as is needed (Swearinger is starting to grow on me as is Keo, weird).

The Raiders however present a unique team. They are obviously over-performing expectations with Terrelle Pryor looking pretty good to start with, but you can say that he's hit a little bit of a slump in terms of passing. Running QB's though, they harry this defense this season, and I'm afraid that almost every game (even the raiders) is losable from here on out.

I think if the Raiders defense is as bad as their team stats project out, then Keenum could have a field day, and thus, might begin the inevitable 4 game winning streak to get us up to 6-7.
