    Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky The first Monday Night Football game in Houston Texans history comes in a setting where the team has played substantially better in several categories.

    None are more important, of course, than the 3-2 record at home as compared to 1-5 on the road.

    Under Gary Kubiak the team is a respectable 13-8 at home, but has offset that with a 5-17 road mark.

    Here are some reasons why they've been so much better at Reliant Stadium than away from it, things that can fuel hope for Houston fans leading up to the game against Jacksonville. The 13.1 average point differential is bigger than I ever would have guessed.
