"There’s an alternate-universe feel to the Houston Texans leading the league in pass attempts right now with 362.Although the running game is normally the strength of the offense, this season the Texans have been forced by circumstance to rely more on their passing game. It helps to have star receiver DeAndre Hopkins, who is open even when he doesn’t seem to be so. Hopkins leads the league in targets and ranks second in yards to Atlanta Falcons receiver Julio Jones.
