There was an interesting note this week in the NFL Media research packet pointing out that the top eight teams in the NFL in total defense all come from the AFC. Pretty crazy, considering it used to be that the NFC was known for rugged defense and the AFC was known for high-scoring aerial attacks.

The Texans have gotten off to a fast start this season, and it’s fast starts that have contributed to that 3-1 record. Houston has outscored its opponents 76-13 in the first half of games. That’s been good enough to hold on for the most part, but the Texans do need to avoid the second-half letdown — particularly in the third quarter, when they’ve been outscored 21-3.

Yes, Darrelle Revis is imposing to opposing fantasy owners, but Jason Smith says you don’t always need to be afraid of him.

This week, the Playbook research staff started its day by putting aside watching every game from Minute 1 to Minute 60. But that doesn’t mean we took a real break.

Andre Johnson’s injury might not be as serious as first thought, but it could still be enough to keep him out for a time.

Week 4 marks the end of the first quarter of the season, a significant landmark for most coaches, and that means a lot of teams will have their first-quarter “grade” on the line when they take the field this weekend.

At 2-1, both Houston and Pittsburgh need to make a statement in this game. The Steelers want to show they are still a contender after starting the season with an embarrassing loss to the Ravens. The Texans, on the other hand, are coming off of a stunning loss to the Saints last week and need to prove that they are a playoff-caliber team.
