"Schaub has been sacked 11 times in the first four games — second-most in the league along with Kyle Orton and Michael Vick — though the Raiders didn't get to him last weekend.
Even with the sacks, Houston ranks second in the league in total offense (415.5 yards per game) and has put up big numbers both running and passing, though usually not in the same game. The Texans said the Bears and offensive coordinator Mike Martz were too predictable in their play-calling and it cost them against New York.
"Defensive linemen in this league are not stupid. They know what's going on," Houston left tackle Rashad Butler said. "They knew the Bears were going to throw the ball 40-plus times a game. I'm pretty sure after a while they weren't even trying to play the run."
Houston will test the Giants with the NFL's leading rusher, Arian Foster, and the league's top rushing offense (172 yards per game). New York's defense ranks 22nd in stopping the run (117.2 yards per game), and let Tennessee's Chris Johnson rush for 125 yards and two touchdowns in a 29-10 loss two weeks ago..."
The Tennessee and Chicago games are little indication of where the Giants stand. Those are two games are at each end of the performance spectrum. The Giants only allowing Chris Johnson 2.6 yds per rush for the first 55 minutes of that game when he ripped-off a 43-yard run. The Bears were throwing because their rushing game was going nowhere.
Houston will try to do what Indianapolis did - call more plays at the line of scrimmage. This way they will be able to offset any personnel mismatches and catch the Giants flatfooted with a quicker pace.
