Panthers vs. Texans Stats

Texans 2015 record:

Series history:
Texans lead 2-1

Last meeting:
Panthers won 23-18 in Houston Dec. 18, 2011

  • Of Carolina's first four opponents, the Texans are the only team that finished above .500 last year.
  • Whether it's Ryan Mallett or Brian Hoyer, Houston's quarterback situation remains uninspiring.
  • New Panthers left tackle Michael Oher will have his hands full with 2014 NFL Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt.
  • Houston's defense could be scary if linebackers Jadeveon Clowney and Brian Cushing are healthy. Safety Rahim Moore and defensive tackle Vince Wilfork were a couple nice free agent pickups.
  • The Panthers lost the only game played in Charlotte in the series. Despite three touchdown receptions by receiver Steve Smith, the Texans left town with a 34-21 win on Sept. 16, 2007.
