The Houston Texans have one of the most high-powered offenses in the NFL.
Just last season it was like pulling teeth for the Houston Texans to put points on the board.
It looks like the Texans have done a complete 180 now that they’re ranked fourth in the NFL in points per game with 28.8 points. In comparison, Houston averaged 17.9 points per game in 2016.
The Kansas City Chiefs are averaging the most points per game with 32.8. The New England Patriots are third with 29.6 points per game. Coming in at No. 2 is the Los Angeles Chargers with 30.4.
The Texans are ahead of teams like the Green Bay Packers (27.4) and New Orleans Saints (23.2). That’s pretty impressive.
Despite all of the points that rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson has helped the Texans score this season, he’s still facing the most pressure of any other quarterback in the NFL, according to Pro Football Focus.

Of course it helps Watson that he’s able to escape the pressure that he faces week in and week out. But it’s not easy to throw on the run while under duress. It’s amazing how accurate Watson has been while running around.
I thought Watson wasn’t accurate. That’s what the doubters said going into this year’s NFL Draft and they were clearly wrong.
This Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns should help the Texans improve their points per game average after putting up over 30 points against a good Chiefs defense in week five.
