The Football Fan Spot:
Last week: 21 (-1)
Despite their 2-7 record, the Texans actually rank 12th in rate of moving the chains differential, moving the chains at a 75% rate, as opposed to 72% for their opponents. They probably aren’t as good as that (Football Outsiders has them 29th in DVOA), but they’ve just been killed by turnovers (-13) and return touchdowns (-7 touchdowns). They won’t make the playoffs are anything, but they’ll pull some “upsets” and be underrated down the stretch.

I have no inside information, no sources to speak of; this is just a man and a random nugget of thought that crossed his mind when he read this...

The Houston Texans are relying on only one punter this season, and he is currently too sick to even practice. What are the Texans to do if their pro bowl punter, Shane Lechler, is unavailable for Sunday’s matchup with the Oakland Raiders, a team in which he spent 13-years with?
