That's not quite how 3 and outs work. It only deals with the first set of downs on a drive. After you get a first down, you can no longer go 3 and out on that drive.
I can't remember what happened right before the INTs in the Jags game, but I know the Vikings INT came after we had already moved the ball downfield.
I think you're right. Autry has been playing very well though, so IDK. Autry is bigger (taller and heavier) than Houston, but I tend to agree he's better technically and may fair better. Pretty sure Houston is stronger and faster too. If memory serves, Autry has played a few more snaps than Houston each game, which surprised me a bit. I knew Autry might float between DT and DE picking up higher than thought snaps, but just thought Houston would be on the field more. Also surprised Becton is grading out as high as he is this early (he's around 80).
Also keep in mind though that Becton was on the injury list and LP 2 of 3 practices with a bum shoulder. Doubt he's 100%. And prior to that, was LP due to a bum knee. I think we should have Buckner and a DE sandwich him a couple times to kick the game off lol.
But yes, we should feast.
