5 takeaways from Rams 33-7 win over Texans in Week 10

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

The Texans' best chance to win is to pound the ball between the tackles and try to wear down the Rams' defense. Woods finished the day with 171 yards receiving, with 94 of those on one play when he beat Jonathan Joseph for the long touchdown.

National Football League scoring leader Greg Zuerlein kicked four field goals for the Rams, who hadn't played in LA since early October thanks to two East Coast road trips, a bye and a "home" game in London. The Texans (3-6) dropped their third straight.

Houston's lone score came on a 26-yard touchdown from quarterback Tom Savage to wide receiver Bruce Ellington that gave the Texans a 7-6 lead at 6:31 of the second quarter. The offensive line hasn't been good enough to move defenders off the ball. He just had a career-high passing and touchdown game, and now he faces another defense that has given up over 300 yards passing and multiple touchdowns to opposing QBs over the last two games.

Defensively, the Rams forced four turnovers.

"I haven't done a good job coaching this team this year, and that was my message to the team", Texans coach Bill O'Brien said. When they try to run off tackle, it's nearly hopeless.

"We're the players. We go out there and play", Hopkins said. They were absolutely unstoppable up front for the Rams, helping limit Houston to only 283 yards of total offense.

NOTES: Rams OLB Robert Quinn missed the game with an illness. Houston's quarterback refused to take the cue. Los Angeles RB Lance Dunbar was added to the active roster from the physically unable to perform list.

Texans: The NFC West portion of the schedule continues with a visit next Sunday from the Arizona Cardinals, who will be on extra rest after playing Thursday.
