What the Texans need to win in Week 1

The Texans are riding a nine-game winning streak, but the winless Browns still hold a 2-1 lead in the AFC South.

The Texans have been outscored by 17 points in the past four weeks.

The Texans have the league’s worst run defense and the Browns are allowing 4.9 yards per carry.

They’re giving up 6.8 yards per rush, including 2.6 on third downs.

This could be a shootout.

If Houston can avoid allowing the run, the Texans would be 3-0.

The Browns are 2-2, but have given up three touchdowns on the ground.

Houston needs to keep its offensive line in check and hold its ground in the second half.
