Sunday wasn’t easy but it was a solid victory. After last week the Texans needed a win to keep their confidence up.
The Texans showed good depth yesterday with Foster beched for the first quarter for off the field reasons. Slaton as usual is a good threat in the shourt passing game and kick returns, as long as he dosen’t step out of bounds. Derrick Ward had a nice strong touchdown run to open the game. This could be a nice three headed monster developing here.
Matt Schaub had a good not great game (192yd 2TD) considering his number one target- the best wide receiver in the NFL didn’t play. Joel Dreessen (TE) caught his first touchdown pass of the year. He also led the team in receptions and yards Sunday. Foster caught the other touchdown pass that Schaub threw. Foster also opened up the second half with a 74 yard TD run which was pretty good. Isn’t it awesome to actually expect this kind of performance from a Texans running back? I think so.
All in all, if I had told you before the season that the Texans would be 3-1, leading the division, without Cushing and have the 9th ranked passing game with the 1st ranked run game, what would have said? It’s a little crazy but it’s real.
And don’t forget,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Cushing is back next week.
