Pro Football Focus grades every player on every play in every game. I dig their raw number totals and have other opinions on their ability to grade individual plays like this. You may feel differently. No matter how you feel, there’s always something to learn from the work they do. This is what PFF had to say about the Texans’ win against the Redskins.

OFFENSE:

—Jordan Akins only saw 18 snaps against the Redskins, but he made the most of his limited time on the field, catching both of his two targets for 42 yards, 38 of which came after the catch. Akins earned an 87.5 overall grade and 90.4 receiving grade for his performance, both of which are career-highs for the rookie tight end.

—The offensive line looked solid once again, allowing just one sack and two hurries (all of which came from Kendall Lamm). All of the offensive line earned above-average pass-blocking grades for the second week in a row, led by Kelemete (80.3) and Martin (83.2). Rankin performed admirably when filling in at left guard, allowing zero pressures on 24 pass-blocking snaps.

DEFENSE:

—Brennan Scarlett earned a 94.6 overall grade against the Redskins, the highest grade among all players in Week 11. The linebacker was targeted three times, producing a PBU, INT and allowing passer rating of just 2.8 for a 93.4 coverage grade (1st among linebackers in Week 11). Scarlett has made most of him impact this season on special teams, where his 86.5 special teams grade ranks first of 149 qualifying players this season.

—Cornerback Shareece Wright had his best game of the season on Sunday, where he posted a 77.2 overall grade and a 77.2 coverage grade. He was targeted six times but allowed just three receptions for 28 yards, while also producing a PBU and allowing a passer rating of 63.2 when targeted. He also chipped in against the run, tallying four tackles on the day. With Reid emerging on the back end, and Jackson and Joseph turning in career years, Wright maintaining even an average level of play would go a long way.

That’s what Pro Football Focus had to say about Houston’s Week 11 win. What do you think?
