Houston Texans: Week 11 NFL Power Rankings (#1)

Last week: 2 (+1)

Record: 8-1

I guess the Texans move into the #1 spot at Chicago’s expense with their win over them, but you have to wonder what the outcome would have been had Cutler not gotten hurt (he threw an interception on a promising drive immediately after suffering that concussion). It’s a shame that Cutler had to get hurt in what seemed like it would be the most revealing NFL game in terms of how teams stack up thus far this season. Also, that was only the 2nd time since 1991 that two 1-loss teams met this late in the season. It’s disappointing we couldn’t see the two teams as they’ve looked this season personnel wise.


RB Arian Foster: Rushed for 102 yards (65 after contact) on 29 attempts, 4 broken tackles, caught 5 passes for 15 yards and a touchdown on 5 attempts

MLB Bradie James: 5 solo tackles, 4 stops, allowed 4 catches for 14 yards on 5 attempts

CB Kareem Jackson: Allowed 2 catches for 9 yards on 4 attempts, 1 interception, 1 pass deflection

SS Danieal Manning: Allowed 1 catch for 6 yards on 2 attempts, 1 interception, 3 solo tackles, 1 assist


QB Matt Schaub: 14 of 26 for 95 yards, 1 touchdown, and 2 interceptions, 1 throw away, 1 hit as thrown, 2 drops, 63.7 adjusted QB rating, pressured on 8 of 27 drop backs (1 sack, 5 of 7, 1 hit as thrown)

RT Derek Newton: Allowed 3 quarterback hurries on 27 pass block snaps, 1 penalty, run blocked for -3 yards on 4 attempts

TE Garrett Graham: Caught 3 passes for 15 yards on 4 attempts, 1 drop, allowed 1 quarterback hit on 3 pass block snaps
