Texans @ Redskins

Recommended Posts



The Texans and Redskins have met four times previously, with Washington winning the first two meetings (2002 and 2006) and Houston winning the last two (2010 and 2014).

The Texans have won six straight games, one shy of the longest winning streak in franchise history - a seven-game streak in the 2011 season.

Last week, Washington's defense allowed 501 yards of total offense but surrendered only three points. It was just the second time in the Super Bowl era that a team held an opponent to single digits despite allowing 500 or more yards. Coincidentally, the other time it happened was also a Redskins victory - 14-6 over the 49ers in 1986 (allowed 501 yards).

The Texans have lost their last 10 road games to NFC opponents. Houston's last road win versus an NFC opponent was Thanksgiving Day 2012 at Detroit, 34-31 in overtime.

Deshaun Watson has now played what equates to a full season's worth of games (16). Watson has totaled 36 touchdown passes, the second most in NFL history through a player's first 16 games (Kurt Warner - 39).

Adrian Peterson is 52 yards away from becoming the ninth player in NFL history to tally 13,000 yards rushing. If he reaches the milestone on Sunday, Peterson will do so in the third-fewest games (143). Only Barry Sanders (133) and Eric Dickerson (138) achieved the mark in fewer games.
