How do you feel about the Texans’ offense so far this season?

Currently the Texans are 6-3. They’re hanging around and waiting until next Sunday when they play the Redskins. Since there isn’t a game to talk and think about this week, let’s instead decompress and review what’s happened so far, starting with the offense.

The Texans have scored 214 points, which is 14th in the league. They are averaging 24 points a game. They are 24th in offensive DVOA at -6.7%, 12th in pass offense DVOA at 20.4%, and 28th in run offense DVOA at -18.6%.

Deshaun Watson has completed 64.9% of his passes, has a touchdown rate of 6%, has thrown 17 touchdowns to 7 interceptions, and is averaging 8.5 yards an attempt. He’s also been sacked 30 times and slithered out of thousands more, bringing his net yards per attempt down to 7.09. DeAndre Hopkins has 63 catches on 90 targets for 894 yards and 7 touchdowns, numbers that most receivers aspire to for in an entire season. Lamar Miller is averaging 4.2 yards a carry, a yard more than Alfred Blue. Keke Coutee, despite playing in only four games, is third on the team in receiving yards and receptions.

I’m not here to give my opinion. I want to hear yours. What grade would you give the Texans’ offense through the first nine games of the season?
