Colts Texans after the bye

Recommended Posts

I'm going to watch a couple clips of Jags vs Texans.  I recall that being a pretty tight game most of the whole way.  Want to see some of the things the Jags did to stymie Watson this year.

 Brown plays for Seattle.. Tunsil is healthy

I feel like you can’t solve this one with Xs and Os.  Each team is in a defensive pickle.  Colts: how do you slow down a red-hot Watson and a Top-5 rushing attack at the same time?  Texans: how do you stop TY from killing you (which he always does), while still keeping enough guys in the box to keep Nelson/Mack from killing you?  So, what happens?  My money is on the Colts, because they are the mentally tough team.  Houston has been terribly inconsistent under O’Brien, and I think they’ll lay an egg against a rested Colt team...

Knowing this team, our solution will be to play zone

I have no idea what to expect. This could go a lot of ways. It could be close and either team wins, Texans could blow the colts out. Not sure the colts could blow out the Texans though. Hopefully we won’t be rusty to start coming off the bye week.

Ramsey has been traded to the rams. If we beat texans the division  should be easier  to win now

  Bleacher Report on which team has the advantage. Should be a close game and the team that makes the fewest mistakes, will ultimately have the advantage.

  I do think coaching = advantage Colts but we will see.

I agree that coaching is advantage Colts.   QB is advantage Houston though.

The Colts should have the advantage overall since they are at home and coming off a bye.

Wow after a week off Desir and Moore still couldn’t practice. If they can’t go Sunday that would be disasterous.

I don’t remember the last time the Colts have played the Texans with a healthy Fuller and Hopkins. I still have trauma from Keke Coutee looking like a top-10 WR against us...And they should all be playing if I’m not mistaken.
It’ll be a fun one at Lucas Oil! I’ll be up in the nose bleeds screaming my head off haha

DNP doesn't  mean "Could not". If it did, it would be CNP.

Everybody knows Chloe just has to have something to worry about!  Desir is just coming off an injury and probably shouldnt have even played against the Chiefs.  They are probably just resting him as precaution.

Fuller usually doesn't even finish any game where we have played him healthy.  He starts off healthy and then ends up injured.  I don't ever really remember too many games where Fuller was an impact.

I am not worried. They both practiced Monday so I am sure It was just a day to rest injuries. It’s something to watch though to see if it carries over to Sunday. He has had very good success against Hopkins.

Bradley Roby was limited in practice which was surprising since he is supposed to miss a month.

One thing that is interesting about this game is both teams beat up a wounded KC team. Neither team has what you would call a great win. Texans s lost Carolina and only won by one point to the jags. As much as those wins against KC were great they were wounded. I think this is going to go a long way to show how good or average one of these teams are.

Hooker is practicing today. Moore and Desir still are not practicing. I am praying hard they can go Sunday. I am shocked after a week they aren’t practicing. Our corners would be rock and Wilson. Taylor would be the slot. Moore would be a huge loss if we can’t use him to blitz. Going to be interesting if both teams have both their starting corners out.

And the Texans have now gone 2 straight games without allowing a sack on Watson.  I'm more worried about DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller, and KeKe Coutee carving up zone.  Can we cover man to man well enough and get pass rush pressure on some critical (3rd down?) plays?

ITS going to be ingesting to see if their oline is fixed. They played Atlanta and the chiefs in the last two games. They gave up 6 sacks to Carolina before those two games.

They played 2 teams with a weak pass rush so we really don't know how their o-line is but they still have issues on the o-line

Houston is a slight favorite despite the game is in Indy. Watson for the first time ever  is starting to scare me.

Reich said when Moore and Desir went out the they were going to have to go to a basic vanilla scheme. If they don’t go it’s going to be hard to confuse Watson. They also have guys that can run routes. That’s why the man won’t work as well. I saw someone breaking down the KC game their WR we’re  just running to a spot. They were not running routes. Makes it easier to cover them in man.

Reich is the better coach.   They have more talent.   Let's see which one wins

In a way the home team always gets 3 automatic points. So by only being a one pt fav people are betting the Texans win.

 

I just saw this stat and it’s kind of jumps off the page with the way the Texans have been passing.

 

The Texans have allowed 1,608 total passing yards this season compared to 1,542 passing yards of their own.

All I am saying is it seems most of the money is going on Houston since it’s a one point spread. Most of the time if it’s evenly matched don’t you usually see the home team with a 3 pt fav? Not talking if the home or road team is a clear favorite but if it’s between two evenly matched teams.

That’s not quite how it works.. 

 

What did the market open at, and how far has it moved towards the Texans?

Basically, the way I see it, if Houston beats the Colts this weekend, Houston WILL win the division.  If the Colts win, then of course the Colts will be in the driver’s seat, and more importantly, the Colts will have emerged as even MORE impressive of a threat.  
 

To me, bottom line for the Colts to win the division, not only is it an absolute MUST to beat Houston this weekend, but they would have to win the rematch as well (in addition to running the table against the Jags & Titans).  Fingers crossed. Go Colts!

What's up with Ebron. I saw on the injury report he DNP and listed as "illness".

 

Any info is appreciated.

As for the spread, with the Colts favoured by 1 ... my understanding is the goal of the sports books is to get action to be 50/50.  Ergo, by the Colts giving away a point, that would seem to indicate that the action has been heavier on the Colts, so the book gives a point away to try to get more action betting for Houston, to try and draw the over all action to 50/50 weighting.

I’m also fairly sure that’s not how it works. 
 

American spreads are slightly weirder, but here they’ll set the market at the most likely result, put a margin either side (which is their profit in effect) and then the market moves in line with amounts wagered on buy/sell. 
 

Using sports books to predict games is nonsensical, two different things.

They don’t get into what it is. Probably just how we all get sick once in awhile. Kelly missed a  practice before the Oakland game with a illness.

The opening line was -1.5 to -2.5 depending on the service. Most have moved to -1, meaning the money has been going to Houston.

    • Dallas won't let him go.  They traded a 1st round pick for him and even if he isn't worth it, Dallas would still resign him
    • Sorry 2006, but you get 4 Pinocchios :-). Lawrence's true freshman year was a lot better than Luck's redshirt freshman year, and sophomore years are shaping up to be very similar, which Lawrence has at least 2 games to go (the numbers include bowls for both)   Keep in mind Lawrence is only a true Soph, and Luck took a redshirt (so he had a year advantage in learning the system, and the stats below).   Here's their comparative stats.   Frosh Year Lawrence 65%, 3280 yards, 8.3 avg, 30/4 TD/INT ratio, 157.6 PR Luck (red shirt) 56%, 2575, 8.9 avg, 13/4, 143.5 PR   Soph Year (Lawrence's soph year isn't done yet) Lawrence 69%, 2870 yards, 9.1 avg, 30/8, 171.5 PR Luck 70%, 3338 yards, 9.0 avg, 32/8, 170 PR
    • Right there with you brother. They’re the last team I’d want to see in the playoffs... 
    • Stats farther below   Quick Summary - Buc's O vs Colts D Passing - The Bucs have the 4th most passing yards per game in the league while we're the 11th best defending the pass. Winston is a bit hobbled, gets sacked a lot, and throws the most INTs in the league. They have a bottom 10 OL, and will be missing their starting RG. Their best WR is a bit hobbled. Rushing - They are not the best rushing team (22nd), and Winston shouldn't be much of a running threat either with his knee.    Quick Summary - Buc's D vs Colts O Passing - One the worst passing Ds (31st) vs one of the worst passing Os (26th). TB blitzs more than most teams in the NFL, yet aren't very successful in pressuring the QB and average in INTs. It's really all about containing Suh. While not starters, TB has hobbled #2 rotational DBs. Will we see Campbell back and will he torch a very bad group of DBs? Rushing - 4th best rushing O meets 2nd best rushing D. If we rush well tomorrow, I'll be surprised given they are already good, and will likely do everything they can to make JB beat them. I'd hate to see Mack get hurt trying to come back quickly.   The Bottom Line Indy should win the game regardless of injuries. TB is near the worst passing D in the league, and our guys will be open. The only question is will JB see them. Given we should be limited in the running game, it's another great opportunity (3rd in 3 weeks) for JB to crush a horrible pass D. On D, Winston and their #1 WR are a bit hobbled, and we should not have too much problem keeping him in check even without Moore. I could see both Sack and INT success tomorrow.    Prediction - I expect the Colts D to hold TB to 24 or under, and could see our guys getting some picks and sacks. I have zero idea what to expect on O. JB should have a career day.. but..., should have done better the last two weeks vs bad pass Ds. If Mack and/or the other RBs have success tomorrow, then WOW vs a very good run D.    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Top Five Bolded Blue' Bottom Five Bolded Red Injured Starters Bolded Green   Buc's Offense 5th in total yards per game  4th in passing yards per game  22nd in total rushing yards per game  4th in total points per game  13th in Red Zone Offense %  32nd best in INTs thrown  24th best in sacks taken  Out - Cappa G, Miller WR, Logan RB Questionable  -  Banged up  - Godwin WR (shin) - was FP, Winston QB (knee) - was FP VS Colts Defense 13th in total yards per game allowed  11th in passing yards allowed  9th in rushing yards allowed  11th in points per game allowed  9th in Red Zone Defense %  18th best in INTs  17th best in sacks  26th in blitz % (23.3%) 18th in QB hurry %  17th in total QB pressure % (22.2%) Out - Moore CB/N,  Questionable  - Hooker S (Foot), Ya-Sin (ankle) Banged up  -      Buc's Defense 17th in total yards per game allowed  31st in passing yards allowed  2nd in rushing yards allowed  29th in points per game allowed  13th in Red Zone Defense %  16th best in INTs  14th best in sacks  2nd in blitz % (43.3%) 29th in QB hurry %  25th in total QB pressure (21.5%) Out - Nelson OLB Questionable  - Dean CB (shoulder) - was FP, Steward DB (knee) - was FP Banged up  - Pierre-Paul OLB (knee) - was LP VS Colts Offense 19th in total yards per game  26th in passing yards per game  4th in total rushing yards per game  17th in total points per game  8th in Red Zone Offense %  16th best in INTs thrown  10th best in sacks taken  Out - Hilton WR Questionable  - Banged up  - Mack RB (hand) - was FP, Alie-Cox TE (thumb) was FP, Campbell WR (hand) was FP,       
    • Great news I'd rather have Hooper for the other tight end. With Cox also around, we wouldn't need to draft a tight end this year or probably next. I wonder how early is too early to extend Leonard and Nelson - it will probably get more expensive every year.
