OK, after four weeks, let's look at the stats. They are starting to tell a story. All numbers are the current league ranking according to ESPN. Oakland Offense total yards 8th rushing yds 1 passing yds 22 points 7 Houston Offense total yds 10 rushing yds 4 passing yds 20 points 8 Oakland Defense total yds 29 rushing yds 29 passing yds 22 points 30 Houston Defense total yds 10 rushing yds 18 passing yds 10 points 4 On offense, the stats are a wash. No real advantage to either side. Defensive stats tell another story though. Our defense has clearly played better. Given a home field advantage, even without AJ, the stats are on our side. Their defense can be had. Being 30th in the league in points allowed as opposed to our being 4th in the league should work to our advantage. But as we all know, it's a new team every Sunday given the history of both Oakland and Houston. We shall see what we shall see.
