Chargers vs. Texans 2022 Week 4: By The Numbers

Let’s take a look at this matchup on paper.

NFL: Houston Texans at Chicago Bears Daniel Bartel-USA TODAY Sports

On to the Texans, as Bill Belichick would probably put it if he were the one coaching the Chargers after last Sunday’s lopsided loss.

The Texans are one of two teams without a win in 2022. They’re currently 0-2-1 with losses to the Bears and Broncos and a tie with the Colts. If there ever was a “get-right” game for the Chargers, especially their ground game, this may be it.

As always, this is just a simple “screenshot” of both teams and how they’re faring on both offense and defense thus far in 2022.
