  • For better or worse, the Texans are now heavily using TEs in their offense. 14 of Brock Osweiler's 42 passing attempts were directed to either C.J. Fiedorowicz or Ryan Griffin. The two tight ends also combined for 6 of the Texans' 19 receptions. This is now the third straight week of the Texans' TEs seeing double-digit targets.
  • It was the first time this season that Lamar Miller had less than 10 rushing attempts and only the second time that the Texans have run the ball less than 20 times in a game.
  • Another first of the season came on the defensive side of the ball, as for the first time this season there was no Texans player that played every single snap on defense. This of course can be contributed to the various injuries which the defense suffered and the fact that Bill O'Brien pulled the defensive starters late in the fourth quarter. That's something that he did not do for the offense, which saw six players with 100% snap percentages.

Those are your snap counts for this week's game. Does anything stand out for you from these numbers or anything else you saw during the game? Let us know in the comments below.
