Houston Texans special teams played pivotal part in wildcard win

The Houston Texans offense struggled to put up points in the first half against the Buffalo Bills, but the defense and special teams played a pivotal role in limiting the Bills to only 13 points in the first two quarters.

In the battle for better field position, Texans’ punter Bryan Anger finished the game with five punts due to the offense’s early struggles but managed to flip the field effectively to put the football inside the Bills’ 20-yard line three times.

Anger averaged 43.2 yards per punt and had a net average of 41.6 yards per punt attempt.
