Texans vs. Raiders: Will Houston's Defense Start to Click against Oakland?

During the fourth game of the 2009 season the Houston Texans hosted the Oakland Raiders at Reliant Stadium, and rectified a run defense that was at the time the worst in the league.

This was accomplished by shifting the front four around a bit, and the addition of strong safety Bernard Pollard. These adjustments changed the tide for the Texans defense, which went from No. 32 against the run in the first four games to No. 13 overall by the end of the season.

This season the Texans defense has flip-flopped from being riddled with gaping holes for running backs, to burst through to a medley of missed assignments, tackles, and opportunities in the passing game.

Here is a look at some adjustments that will need to be made in order for the Texans to overcome this virus this weekend for good.
