    [​IMG]Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky Three numbers that strike me as interesting about the 1-4 Houston Texans:
    1. Place kickers shouldn't count on any chip shots against the Texans, since they've allowed a touchdown 15 of 16 times (93.8 percent). The one stop came in overtime, when the Jaguars kicked a game-winning field goal. There is a huge gap between Houston and the next-worst red zone defense, Jacksonville (72.2 percent).
    2. After gaining 485 yards in their win over Miami, the Texans jumped from 13th to fifth in total offense and 11th to sixth in passing offense.
    3. Turnovers kill. And despite an offseason emphasis on protecting the ball and taking it away, Houston is still terrible in this category. The Texans are a league-worst minus-8 in turnover differential and their 13 turnovers are second to the 49ers' 15, but San Francisco has played one more game.

    Haha, the 2 worst red zone defenses are in the AFC SOuth, and neither are the Colts. Weird.
