  • Will Fuller saw a lot of the ball on Sunday. In 54 snaps, he was targeted 11 times, with 5 of those targets being catches.
  • The Texans used three OLBs quite a bit, with Clowney, Mercilus and Simon often being on the field at the same time, each seeing 80% or more of field time. This is indicative of the various defensive alignments that Romeo Crennel used, often putting Clowney at a DE spot with Merc and Simon working around him.
  • Lamar Miller played a huge role in the Texans' offense, seeing the ball on more than half of his snaps (28 rushing and 4 receiving).
  • The TE spot saw a interesting three-way split. C.J. Fiedorowicz still leads the TEs in snaps, but the gap between him and the other two TEs on the roster is getting smaller. This is especially highlighted by the fact that Ryan Griffin and Stephen Anderson both saw more targets in the passing game than CJF.
That's the brief cliff notes for now. What do you make of these early season numbers?  Anything that stands out? Anything that you think might become a trend as the season goes along? Let us know in the comments below.
