It's time for a trip to Arizona to see some old friends and hopefully break their hearts along the way. Here's my "By the Numbers" look at this matchup with the Cardinals.
124 - The Texans ran for a season-high 124 yards, averaging 4.3 yards per carry against the Colts in Week 6. That was the first time since Week 1 that the Texans topped the 100-yard mark.
1 - The Texans have one individual 100-yard rushing performance in the last 26 games - David Johnson against the Bengals in Week 16.
3 - Texans WR Brandin Cooks has three NINE catch games this 2021 season. Prior to his arrival in Houston, he had three nine+ catch games in his career.
5 - In essentially a calendar year's time (10/18/2020 to 10/17/2021), Cooks had five NINE+ catch games.
92 - Through six games, the Texans have scored a total of 92 points.
65 - The Texans have scored 65 of those points in the first half, over ten points a game
27 - Doing the math, the Texans have scored 27 points in the second half of the six games.
43 - In Cardinals QB Kyler Murray's three years as Allen HS (TX)'s starting quarterback, he never lost. The Eagles won three state championships and 43 straight games. In fact, Murray has lost just once to a team based in Texas in his career - the 2018 Red River Rivalry to the Texas Longhorns. He's 43-0 against Texas HS teams, 4-1 in his college career and 1-0 against the Dallas Cowboys.
3 - There will be three Heisman winners in the building on Sunday - Murray (2018 winner), Texans RB Mark Ingram II (2009 winner) and our pal Andre Ware (1989 winner - only one to have done so from the University of Houston)
4 - Texans DL Jon Greenard has four sacks in four games played.
119 - Greenard has played 119 snaps in those four games, producing a sack 3.4% of his snaps, which puts him third in the league with that percentage.
4 - The magic number for Texans receivers on Sunday against the Colts was four. There were four pass catchers with four or more receptions - Brandin Cooks, Nico Collins, Jordan Akins and Chris Moore.
9 - Texans rookie QB Davis Mills completed a pass to nine different pass catchers, with seven catching at least two passes and only one pass catcher that was targeted who didn't catch a pass.
Alright, that'll do it as we get ready to take off for Phoenix/Glendale to take on the 6-0 Cardinals. See ya' Sunday, everyone!!
