Besides Bill O'Brien, here are 3 coaches doing less with more
17 September 2019
The Texans barely beat the Nick Foles-less Jaguars on Sunday which has some fans concerned with Bill O'Brien's ability to get the most out of his team.
Is Bill O'Brien the worst coach when it comes to getting the most out of his team's talent, or do other coaches across the NFL struggle with this even more than O'Brien?
ESPN 97.5's Joel Blank, Barry Laminack, and Raheel Ramzanali weigh in on O'Brien's struggles and discuss which coaches are the worst at maximizing talent in the NFL.
The Houston Texans will look to get back on track this week against the Broncos, who are suddenly back in playoff contention after ripping off five straight wins.
Too bad Houston didn't get to play the Broncos earlier in the season.
The Texans host Russel Wilson and company this Sunday at NRG and are currently 3.5 point favorites. Vegas is expecting a lot of points as they set the total at 47, the second-highest of the week.
After two straight games with over 100 yards rushing, Devin Singletary and the Texans rushing game came crashing back down to Earth with 32 rushing yards combined between Singletary and Dameon Pierce.
Things could change this Sunday, with the Broncos allowing the most rushing yards per game (155.18). To be fair, many of the Broncos stats are skewed with their terrible start to the season, and a game in which they allowed a whopping 70 points to the Dolphins.
During Denver's winning streak, they held the Chiefs and Bills to 9 and 22 points, respectively. But the one edge the Texans have over almost every team in the NFL is quarterback play.
The Texans and CJ Stroud are 1st in passing yards per game (297.6) and 4th in total yards per game (396.4).
So who will come out ahead in this critical matchup?
