The Houston Texans know Chris Johnson. The Tennessee Titans running back trampled them to the tune of 197 yards earlier this season. The Texans are just hoping Johnson doesn't recognize them . That's because Houston figures its run defense is a lot better than it was in Week 2, when Johnson scored three touchdowns and racked up 284 yards from scrimmage. Over their last six games, the Texans have yielded an NFL-best average of 60.5 yards on the ground. "To me, they're getting better and better," Texans Coach Gary Kubiak said of his defense.

HOUSTON -- The Astrodome, once lauded as the "Eighth Wonder of the World," may soon be a landmark of the past.
