Jamaal Charles vs. Arian Foster Derrick Johnson vs. DeMeco Ryans "Derrick Johnson is the team's leading tackler and has played well this year. He has only three fewer tackles than he had all of last season. DeMeco Ryans is the Texans' second-leading tackler, and he is very active against the run. He is their defensive leader. These two are among the best in the league at their position." Good to See DJ getting a little recognition for his breakout season. Charles is a given.
