(12/21/14) The Texans defense dominated in Week 16, in a 25-13 win over the Ravens.
The Ravens managed just 211 yards of total offense in the game, despite running 68 plays. The Texans pass rush got home for just two sacks in the game, but they forced Joe Flacco into three interceptions anyways, as they finished the game with 18 Fantasy points, their second in a row with that total.
The Texans DST unit enters the final week of the season riding a eight-game streak with at least 10 Fantasy points, and they should have no trouble keeping it going with a matchup on the way against the Jaguars.

(12/14/14) The Texans defense held up their end of the bargain in slowing down the Colts in Week 15, but it wasn't enough in a 17-10 loss.
The Texans held the high-powered Colts offense to just 278 yards, a bit improvement over the 456-yard effort the Colts managed in Week 6. The Texans came up with one huge play early, as Kendrick Lewis scored on a 27-yard interception return. They finished the game with two turnovers and two sacks.
The Texans' DST unit has been a model of consistency, scoring in double figures in Fantasy points in all but two games this season. They will look to close the season out strong, with a tough matchup against the Ravens on the way in Week 16.

(12/7/14) The Texans DST unit came up with another strong performance in Week 14, a 27-13 win over the Jaguars.
The Texans gave up 13 first-half points to the Jaguars, but shut them out completely in the second half. The Jaguars ended up with just 262 yards of total offense in the game, while quarterback Blake Bortles was sacked four times and surrendered one interception.
The Texans have now picked up double digits in Fantasy points in each of their last six games, a streak they will likely struggle to extend in Week 15 against the Colts. They had 13 Fantasy points against the Colts in Week 6, but opposing DST units are averaging just 6.6 against them overall.

Interceptions make Texans' day
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/30/14) The Texans equaled a season high with three interceptions against Titans quarterbacks Zach Mettenberger and Jake Locker en route to a 45-21 victory Week 13 against Tennessee. They also had three sacks and one fumble recovery, limiting the Titans to 320 yards.
It was a predictable effort for a Texans DST that has been one of the most reliable in Fantasy this season, scoring double-digit Fantasy points in 11 of 13 games. The Texans have benefited from some favorable matchups recently, but with the most favorable one of all Week 14 at Jacksonville, you'll want to keep their DST active.
