Coming off a big win at home last week the Texans travel out to Miami to take on the Dolphins. In the past you could almost guarantee a weak performance by the Texans coming off a rout, however this year things may be different with the added confidence that Houston is definitely the most talented team within their division, allowing them to play fast and loose.
Two things to keep an eye on this week is the defense and Arian Foster. Although the defense played well last week, they did have one of the worst pass defenses in the league last year and they are using a new 3-4 base that the team is still becoming accustomed too. Also the Miami offense provides a stiffer test for the defense after facing the Manningless Colts last week. Foster was out for last week’s game, and it is important that this team keeps Foster healthy if they plan on making a deep postseason run. Besides health it will be interesting if Foster can keep up the same type of productivity that he displayed last year.
