XN Sports will rank every NFL offense and defense leading up the regular season. We continue the series with the offenses in the NFC.

9. Houston Texans

Despite the addition of Jadeveon Clowney, it’s hard to envision the Houston defense remaining the No. 2 unit in the AFC. Linebacker Brian Cushing has had trouble remaining on the field for the past two years, and this secondary has failed to live up to expectations. While the Texans should have no trouble getting after the quarterback, its run defense and pass defense are suspect.
