    Texans have to start a new win streak. The BYE Cancels a win streak.

    hoping the training wheels come off the offense after the bye week, and we start scoring more ala last season

    The Texans are not going to be the offensive machine they were last year.

    No Will Fuller.

    They will need Fuller and the play action (running game) and the offense will be damn near unstoppable. But that wont be until next year for the most part.

    I predict 150 yards rushing and 250+ yards passing in DC.

    Look for the Tight Ends to get involved more going down the stretch which should hopefully offset some of the sting from a lack of Fuller.

    Nuk and his disciples.

    The good news is, with their remaining schedule they don't need to rush him back.

    The play action isn't out of the question against the Redskins. While they overall run yards allowed is low, their yards allowed per attempt is 4.2. I think the Texans run it heavily early one.

    Unfortunately the titans have an easier schedule...Texans have no room to let up.

    The bad news is the only other slot receiver on the team is a cast-off from Philly. Even if you move Hopkins inside and waste his talent, who is going to be on the outside opposite Demaryius?

    Coutee said that there's a strong possibility of him playing this week. They don't want any setbacks this time and want the hammy to be 100%.

    I think Carter was a Brad Seely grab, and there really is no plan to include him in the offense unless there is an emergency to do so. Look for both Akins and Thomas to be heavily integrated into the offense post-bye similar to how BoB and the Patriots waited until after the bye to get Hernandez and Gronk integrated in the offensive scheme during their rookie year in New England.

    I think Carter was a "safe" pickup with playoff field position battles in our future. Ervin really struggled on punt returns this year, and I think they believe Carter can step in and improve that output immediately. If nothing else, he could be a fully healthy skill for skill replacement of Ervin who BoB feels hadn't fully recovered from his patellar tendon injury.

    The Texans have it pretty easy as well. Their remaining opponents have a total record of 28-36-1 (which includes a pretty shaky 6-3 Redskins). Also, 4 of the 7 games are at home - and all three games against the AFC South are at home.

    My conservative pick is Texans finishing 11-5, but I could easily see them going 12-4... and I don't think it would be shocking if they win out.
