Arian Foster, Andre Johnson and Owen Daniels, three names that put together one of the most consistent and exciting offenses in the NFL. Daniels is one of the top pass catching tight ends, Johnson is arguably top five at his position with a healthy Matt Schaub and Foster, in my eyes, is the best running back in the league.
A torn ACL at the end of 2009 was the cause for a down year in 2010, but in 2011 Daniels proved he was back to his old form as he caught 54 balls for 677 yards. A pretty impressive number considering T.J. Yates started the last five games of the season.
On 79 targets, Daniels only had two drops, it was one of the lowest rates in the league for tight ends. When the Texans quarterbacks threw in his direction he had a catch rate of 68.4%. In comparison, Jimmy Graham had a catch rate of 67.8%.
After an injury marred 2011 season, Andre Johnson will look to regain his form from 2010 where he was arguably the best wide receiver in football. A healthy Matt Schaub and Andre Johnson can truly do damage as they hooked up 86 times for 1,216 yards and eight touchdowns in 2010.
In 2011, The Houston Texans were one of only four teams to run the ball more than they passed it. A rookie quarterback at the tail end of the season and impressive offensive line play helped the Texans become the most run heavy team in the NFL.
Ben Tate had his fair share of success in limited action, but we all know Arian Foster is the bell cow. Foster has totaled over 4,000 all purpose yards in the past two seasons while breaking just about every Texans franchise rushing record. He now holds the franchise record for the most rushing yards in a single season, the most rushing touchdowns in a season and the most career rushing touchdowns.
In his first two full seasons, he has been selected to the Pro Bowl twice and has been nominated to the NFL All-Pro team twice.
It's hard to find an offense that is this talented across the board. Most offenses will have certain positions that are stacked, but the Texans have difference makers at quarterback, running back, wide receiver, tight end and on the offensive line, which is why they are one of the most dynamic offenses in the NFL.
