    (on if there is any way to explain his success over Houston) “We’ve been able to get off to fast starts against them and get ourselves ahead. That certainly helps you. We got out 10-to-nothing in this past game, and they caught us and outperformed us for three quarters, but I think a lot of it has been getting off to those fast starts, getting them out of their running game and getting them into a throwing game. We’d like to do that again, but they’re much more explosive than they’ve ever been when we’ve played them. They’re averaging up in the 370s (yards) and putting a ton of points on the board. So I think they feel good about their ability to score, and that’s probably what makes this team a little different than previous Houston teams we’ve played.”

    There you have it folks. Force Houston into a pass heavy gameplan, get them away from the running game and they will inevitably self destruct :(

    Unfortunately the Texans usually force themselves out of the running game.

    Here is the gameplan for beating the Texans:

    1. Throw the ball deep against us. We can't defend it
    2. Throw the ball to your TE a lot. We won't defend him
    3. Let us move the ball easily until we get to the 20. Then start playing defense, and we'll turn it over
    4. Overload the left side of our line. You'll get sacks
    5. Run screens and draws - our defense is so hungry for sacks you'll get massive yardage
    6. If all else fails, have your QB drop back and then scramble for a minimum of 15 yards a carry
