What If? The 2010 Houston Texans: Their One Good Defensive Performance.

2010 Texans: This has to rank as one of the more disappointing seasons in team history. The offense was up for the challenge. In addition to the continued brilliance of Andre Johnson, the team saw the emergence of Arian Foster, who went from undrafted rookie to leading the league in rushing (1,616 yards). However, if the offense was playoff-caliber, the defense...was not. While it was not great the previous season, finishing in the middle of the pack, the 2010 version made the 2009 Texans defense resemble the 1985 Bears. In particular, the Texans finished the year in a 2-8 tailspin with the defense surrendered over 30 points/game.
