The Texans, through 5 games, are giving up an average of 329.6 yards per game passing. Let's assume they improve immensely and only give up an average of 250/game the rest of the year. That would still leave them giving up an average of 275/game for the season. I looked back through 1977 to see what the most yards/game passing a defense has given up in a season. Before 1977, teams didn't even give up more than 200 yards/game, even the worst teams, so I stopped there. The worst pass defense, statistically speaking, in history is the 1995 Falcons defense. They gave up 283.8 yards/game passing. The worst of the rest... 2005 49ers - 276.7 1986 Jets - 274.3 1981 Chargers - 269.4 2002 Chargers - 268.4 1985 Chargers - 268.3 2009 Lions - 265.6 I was sitting in the stadium today watching this debacle, and it dawned on me that we don't have what normal fans would call a bad pass defense. That's like saying that the Chicago Cubs are in a dry spell. This is statistically the worst pass defense, by far, in the history of the NFL.
