Notes from Monday night

Sacks without blitzing: Dwight Freeney set the tone by forcing Houston’s first punt with a sack on third-and-10, and later put the game on ice by strip-sacking Matt Schaub (again on third-and-10) on the Texans’ final play. The stellar performance moves the tandem of Freeney and Mathis within striking distance of the league’s top pass-rushing duos.

Osi Umenyiora and Justin Tuck of the Giants and Jason Babin and Dave Ball of the Titans have each combined for 11 sacks out of four-man pressure this season. Freeney’s sacks put him and Robert Mathis at 10.5 as a tandem without blitz help.
