From Elias: The Texans are the first team in NFL history to lose consecutive games on go-ahead TD passes in last 10 seconds in consecutive weeks.
Mark Sanchez completed 5-of-7 passes for all 3 TD and 0 interceptions when the Texans sent 6-or-more pass rushers on Sunday.
Including the game-winning TD to Santonio Holmes, Mark Sanchez completed both of his pass attempts into the end zone in the game. This is nothing new for the Texans - Houston has allowed 10 TD on just 14 pass attempts (71.4 pct) into the end zone this season with zero interceptions. To put it in perspective, the league average coming into this week was 35.7 pct.
Houston's pass defense has been exposed this season, especially when it sends 5 or more rushers. The Texans have now allowed 10 pass TD and recorded no interceptions when rushing at least 5 defenders.
