Texans struggle to stop the run during Week 3 loss
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Texans defense had its worst performance of the season during a 30-17 loss Week 3 at N.Y. Giants. Not only did the Giants total three touchdowns and three field goals, but they finished with 419 yards, which included 176 rushing yards from Rashad Jennings.

The Texans did force a fumble down inside the 5-yard line as the Giants were driving for a score in the first half. They also got a sack from J.J. Watt, while linebacker Brian Cushing finished with a team-high 17 tackles (eight solo). Safety Kendrick Lewis had a team-high 11 solo tackles and finished with 12 total tackles and one forced fumble.

The Texans will look to rebound Week 4 vs. Buffalo.
