Standouts on the Texans 2022 Schedule | Daily Brew

Last week, I broke down the QB roster the Texans will face in 2022. As expected, the non-QB roster the Texans will face is just as stout. Consequently, I decided to dive into just HOW stout that group of non-QBs is in 2022. As such, here are the top 100 non-QBs the Texans will face in 2022.

The Top Ten (in alphabetical order)

  1. WR Davante Adams, Raiders - (trade from Packers) 123 receptions, 1,553 yards and 11 TD - named 1st Team All-Pro for the second consecutive year and earned fifth straight Pro Bowl invitation.
  2. DE Joey Bosa, Chargers - 16 games in 2021, 10.5 sacks and 20 QB hits - earned Pro Bowl status for fourth time.
  3. DE Myles Garrett, Browns - The 2017 #1 overall pick gets better and better - racked up 16.0 sacks and 17 TFL, in addition to four forced fumbles in 2021.
  4. RB Derrick Henry, Titans - Henry is still The King, even missing the majority of the season due to injury - in just eight games, he ran for 937 yards and ten TD.
  5. WR Tyreek Hill, Dolphins - (trade from Kansas City) - earned Pro Bowl honors every single year in the league and has been named 1st Team All-Pro three times - caught career high 111 passes for 1,239 yards and nine TD in last year in Kansas City.
  6. TE Travis Kelce, Chiefs - Hall of Famer in the making - seven time Pro Bowler, three time 1st Team All-Pro - caught 92 passes for 1,135 yards and nine TD in 2021. Numbers were down for the first time in a while and the loss of Hill will impact his production in 2022. But, BUT he's still TK87 and that's scary as he--.
  7. OG Quenton Nelson, Colts - played all season with an ankle/foot issue and was never 100%. Yet, he was still the technician-monster combination that has wreaked havoc all over the league - opened holes for RB Jonathan Taylor to lead the league in rushing - earned his fourth consecutive Pro Bowl honor.
  8. LB Micah Parsons, Cowboys - the 2021 Defensive Rookie of the Year went OFF in a new hybrid rush/stack LB role - 13.0 sacks and 84 tackles in 16 games, add in 30 QB hits, 20 TFL three forced fumbles and three passes defensed - wow.
  9. DT Jeffery Simmons, Titans - 2nd Team AP All-Pro, earned first Pro Bowl invite - 8.5 sacks and 16 QB hits (both were career highs) - total thorn in the Texans' side since he got into the league
  10. RB Jonathan Taylor, Colts - in just his second season, Taylor was unreal, rushing for 1,811 yards to lead the league - earned both Pro Bowl and 1st Team All-Pro honors - received some MVP votes as well.

The Next Ten (in alphabetical order)

  1. WR A.J. Brown, Eagles - glad he's in Philly, whew! We'll still see him, but just once. Yay!
  2. RB Nick Chubb, Browns - ran for 221 yards on 30 carries combined in last two meetings w/Texans
  3. DE Maxx Crosby, Raiders - earned his first Pro Bowl invitation after 8.0 sack season
  4. OC Creed Humphrey, Chiefs - best center in the league as a rookie
  5. LB Darius Leonard, Colts - I loathe seeing him on the other sideline…because he's THAT guy.
  6. DE Khalil Mack, Chargers - HBC Brandon Staley pushed hard to get his former pupil to LA.
  7. DB Kenny Moore III, Colts - the most underrated great player on this list.
  8. OT Rashawn Slater, Chargers - As a rookie, he was outstanding and he'll get better
  9. OG Trey Smith, Chiefs - the Chiefs took a calculated risk on his medicals and it paid off HUGE!
  10. WR Jaylen Waddle, Dolphins - 104 catches on 140 targets as a rookie, just getting started.
