Top 14 Observations: Houston Texans vs. New Orleans Saints
4 of 4
Observations 13-14 / Texans vs. Saints
- The starting offensive unit was much crisper against the Saints. Offensive back-ups played a strong game against the 49ers but were less effective this week. It should be noted that the 49ers and Saints were among the worst defenses last season. The upcoming game against the Cardinals will provide a much clearer picture of where the Texans offense stands.

- With Jadeveon Clowney and Brian Cushing back in the line-up and Christian Covington significantly elevating his game the starting defense played much better against the potent Saints. It looked capable in the short-term of withstanding the loss of J.J. Watt until he is fully recovered. He should be able to ease his way back into the line-up, not having to carry a full load from the opening game.
