The Texans have allowed an average of 267 YPG over the last three games. If you compare that to the stats for all teams for the year, that would put the Texans at 3rd in yards allowed. Yes I know the Raiders skewed the numbers a little, but we faced two potent offenses as well. Stats from NFL.com: Raiders: 165 Cardinals: 340 Bengals: 296 I don't like to cherry pick data, but it's pretty telling. After the Jacksonville game, the simplification of the defense is paying off. I'm fairly confident this is not a top 5 defense, or a top ten defense, but if we can get in to the mid to low teens that would be awesome. I know this was talked about a lot in the offseason.
