The Rams have to face the defense in the Texans, what do think the Rams need to do to offset the defense of the Texans and make the game competitive with their offense?
According to Pro Football Focus, the Texans are ranked 14th in run defense, 7th in pass rush, and 23rd in coverage this season. Obviously, the St. Louis Rams top priority will be keeping J.J. Watt off of Bradford. If they can keep the quarterback upright, they should be about to move the chains through the air against some less-than-stellar defensive backs. Moreover, Sam Bradford has had considerably more success against 3-4 defense, for whatever reason, which should bode well for the Rams.
