Houston Texans vs Tennessee Titans 12/15/2019
Houston Texans last collided against the Denver Broncos and were laid low with a 38-24 endgame score. QB Deshaun Watson was going for 28/50 with 292 air yards. He dished out 1 thrown TD and 2 interceptions. Carlos Hyde supported his efforts by rushing through 14 carries. He chalked up 73 yards on the ground. DeAndre Hopkins took care of the receivers’ end, catching an impressive 7 balls through 134 yards.
The Texans’ stats indicated that they tried to be as aggressive as possible. They initiated 26 first-downs. They also rushed for 22 out of 73 plays. The Texans seemed to have favored a mixed-offense style, probably because they faced solid defense. The problem with their tactic was that they over-committed to the offense at the expense of their own defense.
The Texans allowed an 81% throw completion rate and conceded 27 rush attempts. These figures alone can justify the scoring gap between the Texans and their opponents. The Texans should learn how to balance defense and offense so that they don’t end up in a similar predicament in their future matches.
