  • The Texans' defense has been know for its multiple looks over the past few seasons, but this week's defensive mentality was clearly to have five plus players drop into coverage with a pass rush of mainly Clowney, Watt and Wilfork get after Alex Smith. These nickel and dime looks paid off by restricting Chiefs TE Travis Kelce and forcing Alex Smith to beat the Texans with his arm. Considering the success of the scheme against a less than excellent QB, it might be worth looking at for the Texans' upcoming contest with rookie QB Jacoby Brissett and the Patriots.
  • For the second straight week, the tandem of DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller dominated the passing game, with both players seeing more targets than the rest of the team combined. For all the talk of the Texans' offense being varied and inclusive of multiple players, it has mostly revolved around Lamar Miller and the two receivers to various degrees of success. It'll be interesting to see if this trend will continue or if the Texans will look to include more players into the offensive workload.

Those are the snap numbers for this week. Snap Counts will be back on Friday due to the Thursday night game, so until then, what say you on this week's numbers? Anything stand out? Anything worth commenting on? Let us know in the comments below.
