  • Braxton Miller and Tyler Ervin continue to struggle to find a place within this offense. Miller has suffered due to injuries over the past few weeks as he's missed games, but the share of snaps that he got in the first two games are now firmly in Jaelen Strong's hands. As for Tyler Ervin, this was only the fourth game this season where he has seen snaps offensively. Considering the talk of Ervin's role before the season, it's a bit disappointing to see just how little he's actually factored in the offensive game plan.
  • This:
  • This was also the first time this season that a player other than Lamar Miller led the Texans in rushing yardage.

That'll be all for now, folks. Any comments on this weeks snap numbers or any other statistical anomalies you've discovered? If so, let us know in the comments below. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to drink myself into a stupor and imagine that the Texans traded for Philip Rivers.
