Texans are 28th in the NFL in rushing yards, 647 yards, tied for last in NFL with only 3 rushing tds. and twp fumbles. 29th in NFL with negative net points of -38 of course tied for lowest amount of total touchdowns with 11 heading into week 9. Houston's record is 1-5-1 Defense Texans are 23rd in the NFL in passing yards, having only allowed 1,523 passing yards and 2nd in NFL for only allowing 5 passing TDs. Texans are the NFL's worst team in stopping the run, allowing 1,302 rushing yards and tied 28th for allowing 10 rushing TDs. Philadelphia Eagles Offense Eagles are 15th in the NFL in passing yards, 1,822 yards, 19th in NFL with passing 10 Tds, QB rating of 105 only giving up 2 INTS and QB lost no fumbles. Eagles are 9th in the NFL in rushing yards, 1,047 yards, 1st in the NFL with 14 rushing TDS!

Eagles are 9th in Rush Defense in the NFL allowing 803 yards and 13 in NFL allowing 6 rushing touchdowns. Strategy to win Eagles Defense is so far superior to the Texans offense that they should just play a lot of zone and maybe practice the occasional blitz early on in the game. The Texans are so bad at stopping the run, and Eagles are so incredibly great at it that to win the recipe is simple which the Eagles have cooked up all season; Don't Turn the ball over Run the ball, and stop the Run Eagles win 42 to 13 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
