Default HPF:Texans put the cats out

Quote:
What Went Right?

Feeling a Bit Defensive?
We all may owe Richard Smith an apology. This was easily the best overall defensive effort of the season. The Texans won the turnover battle 2-0 and dominated time of possession. The front seven harassed Leftwich all afternoon. Mario collected another sack and recovered a fumble. Ryans and Peek were all over the field. The unit as a whole held Jacksonville to 16 points and nearly 100 yards under their averages.

Don't Make Him 'Angry'. You Won't Like Him When He's 'Angry'!
Andre Johnson continues his Pro Bowl caliber season with another eight catches for 106 yards (his fourth 100-yard game this season) and a highlight reel touchdown. His totals agains the Jags gives him season numbers at 47 catches for 591 yards and three touchdowns. Thatís a 125 catch, 1,576 yard, eight touchdown pace.

Carr Just Keeps on Cruising
Another efficient, productive outing by David. Another game (his third of the season) with a passer rating over 100. Two more touchdowns. No fumbles, no picks. Made plays when needed. Better get used to the fact that heís not going anywhere.
What Went Wrong?

Not Much!
This is usually a three item feature, but it can be summed up in one entry today. Really, what went so wrong? They DID give up 102 yards on the ground. But, thatís 16 yards less than Jacksonville averages. And Brownís missed field goal was infuriating, although he nailed two others and three PATís for 9 points. Sandersí pass interference penalty? Pretty ticky-tack. Honestly, who wouldnít take that effort every week?
Key Play Of The Game

Driving for a go-ahead touchdown (or at least a tying field goal) behind the yeoman work of running backs Fred Taylor and Maurice Jones-Drew, the Jaguars' Byron Leftwich handed off to Taylor at the Texans 28 yard-line. Stacked up after a one yard gain and fighting for additional paydirt, Taylor had the ball torn away by Texans linebacker, Antwan Peek. Mario Williams fell on the ball and the Texans drove for a quick touchdown; never looking back as the rout was on.

They beat up a beat up team today. Richard Smith did the only thing he could do with this group. He sold out to the gaps and jammed the running game. Look for draws screens and traps this week from the thumb tacks. Give Fischer two weeks to game plan, and he could come in with Division II college guys and give us fits. The big question is can this team win three in a row? Can they win one on the road. Hold together through the third quarter offensive drought one more time. Create three turnovers once again. Lots to ask from this group. Will they grow up this week ? We'll see.

Well the Jaguars had the bye week to prepare for us. I don't know if the Titans have the bye week or not, but I think the Texans have a lot of momentum going into the game after this huge win for us.
