Five Keys: Chargers at Texans - Ricky Henne
"I thought it would be a lot better.  We’re only at 50% scoring touchdowns.  We’ve had 46 possessions and only scored 23 touchdowns.  I think we could be a lot higher. It’s just some little things from week to week that we haven’t executed the right way.  And there’s certain things teams have taken away.  But the way we’ve been going up and down the field, I’d like (red zone scoring) to be higher.  It’s been a point of emphasis all year."

What the Texans are Saying about the Bolts - Joe Gigliotti
"I think it is a talented group that plays extremely hard. It starts with their front seven. you look at Ingram, Bosa;  they are making it very difficult for the offense to move the football down the field because of their presence on the edge. I think they are a group that rallies to the ball; I think they play hard (and) physical. (Corey) Liuget in the middle, he is going to make your day very difficult and is a guy that can wreck your day all on his own so we are going to prepare very hard for him and have a plan for him and the rest of the group." – QB Brock Osweiler

After a sub-par Week 10 performance, Miller exploded on Monday night, racking up 104 yards and score on the ground. This week, he faces a Chargers defense that gives up the second-most PPR points per game to opposing running backs. San Diego has allowed at least one rushing touchdown in each of their last four games.

Chargers LB Denzel Perryman primed for impactful return - Eric Williams
"He’s been doing a great job with that," Pagano said about Toomer making the defensive play calls. "I didn’t want to just change it to change it. I feel like Denzel coming back is going to have a lot on his plate. After his first couple hits he’s got to get focused on seeing the formation and making the calls on certain things, so we didn’t want to overload him right off the bat.
