In a pass happy league, the #1 thing teams need after a solid passing game is the ability to slow down the opponents’ pass attack.
Not so long ago your Houston Texans had one of the most feared defenses in the NFL. Between J.J. Watt, Jadeveon Clowney and others, the Texans defense carried Bill O’Brien’s offense for many years.
Those days are gone, sadly.
In 2020, the Texans defense ranked 30th in total yards given up, 27th in points coughed up, 25th in passing yards against and dead last in rushing yards by the opponent.
