    is susceptible to exploitation in the short and middle zone.
    Their LBs' coverage skills are questionable.

    The good thing for us is that their interior D-line is not as strong as the outside guys.
    That ought to help us in both phase of offense;
    at least that what I hope for. :texflag:

    D.Brown must have a good game against Odom, or at least an average game.

    Outside of Roy Williams, their secondary is inconsistent.

    Our receivers can beat them.

    If healthy, Tank Johnson is capable of giving the Texans interior linemen fits.

    Roy Williams is out at SS. Which should weaken the Bengals run defense, but strengthen their coverage. Still, Owen Daniels is a mismatch versus the Bengals LBs and safeties.

    The Texans have to vertically stretch this defense, in order to free up Slaton and the run game. Pass to setup the run.

    With Tank Johnson slowed by a foot injury (?) I think we match up with them very well.
    We should be able to pass, and therefore, improve our running game.

    So we did set up the run with the pass.

    But with their other DT down, I thought it would have been better to run on 2 and 4 outside their 10.
