Does the NFL's new 'safety oriented' rules actually give an edge to the Texans offense oriented team an edge to this season? I think it does. Consider that the Raiders set a new team record with a score of 59 today against the Bronco's. Now I know the Raiders are on everyone's high powered offensive teams list, right. Come on 59 points. And there were other multiple above 30 pts scores today. So the question I am asking the board is this. With the Texans poor defense and high powered offense, given that the NFL wants to 'outlaw' vicious hits or hits to the helmet, etc. doesn't this give the Texans an edge. Especially given that the 'knock' on the Texans team is that they are not as physical of a team. The NFL defense's are going to have to 'pull up' on their hits and tackling so doesn't this mean more receptions/ yds/ TD's for high powered offenses such as the Texans? Which should translate into more wins, right?
