Numbers Don't Lie with the Houston Texans Offensive Line

much of the discussion will be focused on the offensive line and how they will handle the new season. Now, if you have been paying attention to the offensive line discussion since the end of the 2016 season,Heading into training camp, most would say that this Houston Texans unit is near the bottom of the NFL.

which was not always glowing., Xavier Su'a-Filo, Greg Mancz,The offensive line was mainly comprised of Duane Brown, Jeff Allen and Chris Clark. Kendall Lamm The injured Derek Newton and now departed Oday Aboushi also played parts in the line production. Much was said of their play as a unit and of the individual performances of particular players

the Texans offensive line gave up 32 sacks on the season,Authentic Jared Goff Jersey,In 2016, ranking them tied for 11th in the NFL. Their 97 quarterback hits allowed ranked them 22nd in the NFL.

A look at the running game showed a little more substance on how the line is not as bad as many seem to think.

it is pretty clear that the Texans are above average in opening up holes and getting running backs to where they need to be,With those stats, leading to the question of why is there not more production from the running game?

or a running back not creating or breaking tackles from defenders. The proof is in the numbers,It could be a missed block on the second level from a lineman or another skill player, especially against the league average. that the offensive line's performance might not be as bad as some feel this unit is outside of Houston.

There is improvement needed still, but the offensive line might not be too far from being a top five or top ten unit in the NFL if they can improve on their numbers from 2016.
