O'Brien lists four areas for improvement by Texans


The Texans polished off the Cowboys, 28-17, Thursday night in Arlington. They finished the preseason with a perfect 4-0 record, led the NFL in points scored with 102, takeaways with 12 and defensive touchdowns scored with three.

Head coach Bill O'Brien said Friday that he likes the "good chemistry" he's seen from the club so far, as well as the willingness to compete and work hard. 

But he listed four specific areas in which he wants the Texans to get better. In his words, here are those spots to get better.

  1. "I think we have to be better on both sides of the ball on third down."
  2. "I think our return game needs to be better, punt return and kickoff return."
  3. "I think we need to run the ball better."
  4. "I think based on the Arizona game, we better be ready to stop the run better than we've done."

O'Brien said the Texans players will have the weekend off, before returning to practice on Monday.
