      Johnson caught 5-of-9 targets for 77 yards in Monday's 30-23 loss to the Steelers.

      Analysis: Johnson had just one catch for four yards at the end of three quarters, but he finally got it going during a failed comeback bid. This kind of mediocre receiving line is becoming all to familiar for owners, as Johnson is stuck in a below-average offense, catching passes from Ryan Fitzpatrick. He also isn't quite getting the volume he did last season, averaging a still-lofty nine targets per game, down from 11.3 in 2013. Johnson is on track for a respectable 1,111 receiving yards on 89 receptions as the center of Fitzpatrick's attention, but his historical lack of touchdowns has become all the more problematic in the Texans' current offense. Houston has scored just 14 offensive touchdowns in seven games, with Arian Foster accounting for six of those.

      Hopkins (hand) caught 6-of-9 targets for 108 yards in Monday's 30-23 loss to the Steelers, but he lost a fumble at the end of a 32-yard gain in the fourth quarter.

      Analysis: Hopkins quickly went from giving the Texans hope to essentially burying the comeback bid. He otherwise had a solid night, despite catching just one pass for 23 yards in the first half. With the Texans finally forced to throw later in the game, Hopkins and Andre Johnson each had a team-high nine targets, though it was running backs Arian Foster and Alfred Blue who caught the touchdowns. Hopkins is a talented player with a key role in the offense, but the Texans prefer to run the ball, and quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has been mediocre. With Johnson still getting the larger share of targets most weeks, Hopkins has unsurprisingly lacked for volume.

      Blue had five carries for 14 yards and one reception for an 11-yard touchdown in Monday's 30-23 loss to the Steelers.

      Analysis: Blue merely worked as the backup to Arian Foster, who had to be spelled following a 33-yard run in the first quarter. Blue took advantage of the opportunity, catching an 11-yard touchdown pass on the next play. He has established himself as the clear top choice behind Foster, but the veteran is simply dominating the workload.

    • Fitzpatrick completed 21-of-32 passes for 262...

      Fitzpatrick completed 21-of-32 passes for 262 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception in Monday's 30-23 loss to the Steelers.

      Analysis: Fitzpatrick had a tipped pass picked off during the Steelers' 24-point barrage at the end of the second quarter. He otherwise played a decent game, though the plodding Houston offense is still struggling to sustain drives, especially when forced to play from behind. For a second straight week, one of Fitzpatrick's wide receivers lost a comeback-killing fumble in the fourth quarter, but the Texans did bounce back to pull within seven points in the final two minutes. Despite having solid weapons around him, Fitzpatrick has not recorded a 300-yard or three-touchdown game so far this season.

    • Foster had 20 carries for 102...

      Foster had 20 carries for 102 yards, adding four receptions for 13 yards and a touchdown on six targets, in Monday's 30-23 loss to the Steelers.

      Analysis: Once again the centerpiece of the offense, Foster had a mostly solid game overshadowed by a bad lost fumble inside the Texans' five-yard line. He still put up strong numbers, though the rushing yards were hard to come by after he piled up 59 on five carries on his team's first drive. With the last of those carries going 33 yards, Foster was spelled by Alfred Blue, who scored from 11 yards out on a reception the very next play. Foster later scored the game's final touchdown on a two-yard catch with 1:31 remaining. Somehow consistent in an offense that isn't, he'll be looking for his sixth 100-yard rushing performance in seven games when the Texans head to Tennessee in Week 8.
