To help get a better eye on the Texans before this week's game, I once again turned to Steph Stradley. Steph was voted the ultimate Texans fan in 2006 and when not practicing law in Houston writes the Texans Chick blog on the Houston Chronicle's website. You can also follow her on Twitter @StephStradley, where she says smart things about the Texans and mean things about Bud Adams. In addition to answering questions from me, she also sent me questions I answered over at Texans Chick; I'll add that link when those go up.
In an effort to keep things fresh and interesting, I tried not to duplicate things I asked her in our first exchange, so check that out for more information on the Texans. On with the new Q&A.
Total Titans: 458 yards and 37 points against the Jaguars. 525 yards and 31 points against the Lions. What the heck is going on with the Texans defense, especially a pass defense that's allowed 791 yards the past two games, that wasn't happening ...

The Texans won the last two weeks but, not by much. They need to figure out what's going on with their defense if they want to make a playoff run.

Jacksonville at Buffalo - Chad Henne is proving that he can play QB in the NFL. I...
HOUSTON -- Suddenly the Houston Texans are broken. Not as a franchise, and not their season. Not metaphorically broken. Actually broken. Like with injuries.

Brooks Reed, cornerback Johnathan Joseph and offensive lineman Derek Newton.

It’s not often we talk about other players not associated with the Houston Texans, but the name of Oakland Raiders inside linebacker Rolando McClain has come up. According to multiple sources, the former 8th overall pick (2010 NFL Draft) is set to “no longer” be a Raider.
These tweets came out about McClain and his recent comments.
Former Bama LB Rolando McClain no...
SONG THAT NEVER ENDS
Lions defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham ripped Matt Schaub for his comments about Ndamukong Suh and defended Suh's hit.

When asked about it, he said, “It’s huge. It’s a long season...
Houston Texans defensive tackle J.J. Watt was fined $15,750 for striking Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford in the head/neck area in the fourth quarter of their Nov. 22 game, according to NFL.com. No penalty was called on the play. Otherwise, it would have put Detroit in field-goal range at the 30-yard line and in position to win the game. Houston eventually won 34-31 in OT.
Texans coach Gary Kubiak says cornerback Johnathan Joseph, linebacker Bradie James and offensive linemen Derek Newton and Antoine Caldwell will miss Sundays game at Tennessee.
