STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - Only second time in 15-year history that Texans have visited Vikings in regular season. They played at Metrodome in 2008. ... New Texans QB Brock Osweiler has thrown six interceptions in four games. ... Osweiler has targeted rookie WR Will Fuller seven or more times each game. Fuller averaging 80.8 receiving yards per game. ... DE Jadeveon Clowney has five sacks in last eight regular-season games for Texans, who lost star DE J.J. Watt for year following back surgery. ... With straight seven regular-season wins, Vikings, one of three remaining unbeaten teams in league, have longest streak since nine straight victories spanning 2002-03 seasons. ... Vikings have allowed fewest points (50) through four games in their history since 1988 (47). ... Vikings lead NFL with plus-10 turnover margin. Only giveaway was lost fumble by SS Andrew Sendejo during his own fumble return. ... Sam Bradford has four TD passes and no turnovers in three starts at QB for Vikings, with 105.5 passer rating that's third in league. ... Fantasy Tip: Don't bench Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins just yet, even against stingy Vikings defense and coming off quiet game vs. Titans with just one catch for 4 yards. Hopkins never went more than two straight games without TD last season.
