The Houston Texans currently have the perfect game plan to win football games as they are 2-0 on the year and seem like they could get used to this winning thing.

The plan right now seems to be play tough defense, hand the ball to Arian Foster and keep quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick from turning over the football on offense.

In two games thus far in ’14 the interception prone QB has zero INT’s in the Bill O’Brien offense, and the running game of Foster has two 100-plus yard games with 245 yards total in two games.

But it isn’t just the running game who is making waves … future Hall of Fame wide receiver Andre Johnson had 12 receptions this season in games against the Washington Redskins and Oakland Raiders.

In those games he’s combined for 167 yards receiving and 11 first downs. He’s averaging 13.9 yards per competition.

DeAndre Hopkins is also having a big start to his seasons with seven receptions for 111 yards and two touchdowns. Hopkins is averaging 15.9 yards per receptions in his two games.

But the most important stat is they have just two turnovers thus far in 14, both on fumbles. Considering San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick had four turnovers himself Sunday night against the Chicago Bears, I think the Texans are doing just fine.

It has been a good start for the Texans and can possibly get better next Sunday as they are to face the New York Giants, who are 0-2 on the season.

Thoughts thus far on the Texans?
