Houston Texans balanced team will stay undefeated

The Houston Texans are looking to improve to 5-0 on the season against the New York Jets. Houston has started the year with four straight victories and have won in convincing fashion. In week one the Texans defeated the Miami Dolphins 30-10 behind a dominant defensive defensive effort where they took the ball away on three straight Dolphins plays.

In week two the Texans defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars by a score of 27-7. In this game the Texans dominated the time of possession by controlling the ball for just over 43 minutes and ran 83 total offensive plays. The running game was the key to this game as the team had 216 yards on the ground with three touchdowns.

Week three was a big game for the Texans as they battled the Denver Broncos and their new quarterback (and previous nemesis of the Texans) Peyton Manning. The game was closer than the previous two as the Texans won by a score of 31-25 but showed how balanced this Texans team has been constructed. Against the Broncos the Texans passing game can through to light up the opposition. For the game Texans quarterback Matt Schaub had 290 yards passing for four touchdowns with one interception. Schaub spread the ball around as all four touchdowns were caught by different receivers and no player had more than three catches.

Against the Tennessee Titans the Texans showed their team balance in the 38-14 victory. In this game Schaub has 202 yards passing and two touchdowns. Running back Arian Foster added 86 yards on the ground with a score and the defense had two interceptions returned for touchdowns. In this game the team had success running, passing and on defense.

The Jets will struggle to beat the Texans because they have to prepare for so many scenarios. They have to be able to stop the run, the pass and figure out how to move the football against this vaunted defense. I see the Texans winning this game and continuing their streak.

Watch Chiefs' Smith Hit Conley For Huge TD

Right before this touchdown, Jeremy Maclin may have suffered a serious knee injury, which means the Chiefs are going to need more of this out of the rookie Chris Conley. With a 20-0 lead, the Chiefs will likely advance to the AFC Divisional Round next week.

Texans Actually Tried J.J. Watt At QB

There's something to be said for pulling out all the stops and using every trick play in the book to win a playoff game, but bringing in J.J. Watt to play quarterback in the wildcat formation was probably a giveaway that he would be running the ball.
