  • Randy Bullock finished with the 6th most field goals made last year but was second 30-39 yard range. This is a good and bad thing because it means the offense is not converting in the Red Zone. The passing game inside the 20-yard line was horrible last year and needs to change in order to convert more field goals into touchdowns.


  • Unfortunately the Texans punted 7th most in the NFL. Shane Lechler once again finished top five in punt yards to give the defense the best field position possible.
