Going into the season, head coach Bill O'Brien said he felt consistency on the offensive line was important, and that played out during the season. That group saw much more consistency than the skill groupings. The Texans used the lineup of left tackle Duane Brown, left guard Ben Jones, center Chris Myers, right guard Brandon Brooks and right tackle Derek Newton for 863 of their 1,062 snaps. The second most used offensive line lineup was that of Brown, Jones and Myers at their regular spots, with Newton at right guard and Tyson Clabo at right tackle. That lineup played 69 snaps, all in one game against the Baltimore Ravens.
