Summaries especially for @CoachLite :goodluck:

 

Quick Summary - Houston's O vs Colts D

Passing - we gave up 300+ last game and 2 WRs had 100+, but Houston was also playing from behind a lot. Our DBs are a little gimpy and Willis will be out, so I'm assuming Watkins will get his. We had 2 INTs last game which helped diminish the 300+. 

Rushing - We did an outstanding job vs Hyde in the first game. Not sure we can do that again. If we can come out and play well on O, I think we'll force Houston to pass more and run less. If Hyde has a good day, it's probably bad for us.

Overall - I don't think we'll get 2 INTs this week, and I doubt we are able to shut down Hyde again. If Watkins gets over the ankle issue, we'll probably struggle in both phases. We need to dictate from the beginning and get after him with the DL. Hoping Flus is creative this week.

 

Houston Offense

7th in total yards per game (380.2)

14th in passing yards per game (239.5)

5th in total rushing yards per game (140.7)

10th in total points per game (24.5)

6th in Red Zone Offense % (65.71) 

16th best in INTs thrown (7)

22nd best in sacks taken (32)

Out - 

DNP (Monday) - None

LP (Monday - Fuller WR (hamstring - will likely be GT decision), Howard G/T (knee)

FP (Monday) - Watson QB (ankle)

VS

Colts Defense

11th in total yards per game allowed (325.6)

11th in passing yards allowed (228.8)

9th in rushing yards allowed (96.8)

15th in points per game allowed (20.6)

10th in Red Zone Defense % (51.72%)

19th best in INTs (7)

15th best in sacks (25)

26th in blitz % (22.8%)

25th in QB hurry % (8.5%)

25th in total QB pressure % (21.2%)

Out - Willis SS (conc)

DNP (Monday) - Geathers SS (rest), Odum FS (shoulder), Taylor CB (ankle), Ya-Sin CB (ankle)

LP (Monday) -  Desir CB (Hamstring)

 

Quick Summary - Houston's D vs Colts O

Passing - Even when healthy, Houston has one of the worst passing Ds in the league. And they are not healthy. 3 of their 4 starting DBs are banged up, and another 2 depth DBs are gimpy. And while they blitz a lot, they are dead last in the league in total QB pressures. Even with an gimpy WR unit, we should easily dominate them here. Look for Pascal, Hines, and the TEs be very productive if targeted. It would be real nice to get Hilton and/or Campbell back.

Rushing - Houston is decent vs the run, but has been very inconsistent. I think we'll be fine with Williams if we play a man blocking scheme and don't get to cute. Houston is vulnerable on the edge too, so wouldn't be surprised to see Hines get some carries.

Overall - There's no reason we shouldn't score points in the passing game. The game will likely be on JB's arm, and he should have another big game vs Houston this week. Rushing may be a bit frustrating, but I don't think we need a lot vs Houston. If we struggle on O, I think Houston will play ball control, Hyde will do well, and we'll be in trouble. 

 

Houston Defense

25th in total yards per game allowed (374.4)

29th in passing yards allowed (272.4)

13th in rushing yards allowed (102.0)

30th in Red Zone Defense % (65.52%)

28th best in INTs (5)

26th best in sacks (22)

9th in blitz % (32.9)

30th in QB hurry % (7.3%)

32nd in total QB pressure (18%)

Out - 

DNP (Monday) - Adams S (conc), Johnson CB (ankle), Reid S (conc+shoulder)

LP (Monday) - Cole ILB (knee), Gipson S (back), Roby CB (hamstring - will likely be GT decision)

VS

Prediction

Waiting to see how injuries go tomorrow.

If TY comes back I think JB will have the same type of game as last time. Not sure what will happen if he doesn’t. I think we will run better without Watt and Reid.

Watt really isn't/wasn't huge in the running game. 

Reid would be a big loss if he ends up not playing.

On offense, it depends on the health of our WR core. If TY can play then we can get something going on offense, even if he dosnt produce big. Houston will always do their best to take away TY which leaves someone else open. The right side of the line dosnt have to worry about Watt. Hopefully we can still get a running game going with no Mack.

 

On defense, I think they're about to put some points up. They just about got shut out, and offenses like theirs usually follow those  with high scoring games. The secondary is going to have their hands full we with Hopkins if Desir dosnt play. 

 

37 - 35 Colts

Even if TY just plays as a decoy it will be a big help. 

Houston's standard MO is to double the top WR/TE threat. And they're so bad we should have plenty of options regardless if TY is back or not. Of course we want TY to play, but there should be plenty of folks open regardless.

I wonder why this thing is still a problem he hasn't played in almost a month and a half week 7 was his last game played since he missed the Denver, Pittsburgh, dolphins, and jags game.

Hamstrings on corners can be bad. Roby has missed a month for the Texans. I think they have tried to get him back as close as they can’t to 100% for this game. I think they trust the other corners to get things done.

That was a complete debacle of coaching prep and game plan.

I don't see that happening again.

The last three games since the Watt injury the Texans are allowing 6.61 yards per carry. Which ranks 31st right ahead of Jax.

The last three games.

Raiders - 4.0

Jags - 4.9 mainly because of Minshew having a couple big scrambles

Ravens - 7.3 - due to L. Jackson's big scrambles, and a 60+ yard TD run by Edwards.

 

The 6.3 is a little misleading. It's really one game, and that one game had only a few big gains from the QB scrambling and a very long TD of 60+ yards by Edwards (this is an edge run where the DBs all get manhandled downfield - link below).  And the Jags game wouldn't be 4.9 without several big scrambles. Not sure how much I put that on the loss of JJW. More of an impact to sacks/qb pressure, which they don't rank well there to begin with. Unless JB is going to use his feet a whole lot, not much to see here.

This is Crennel fear mongering his players lol. Whatever it takes I guess, but he's throwing a dart with a blindfold on in terms of prediction.

We are now approaching the endgame for our season: the war of attrition. Last men standing basically wins.

Shocked Paris can't go yet with him being limited all week, still struggling to catch the ball I imagine. Nice to see TY has a shot and Wilkins looks like he's good to go. 

 

So our healthy corners for this game are:

  1. Desir
  2. Moore
  3. Tell
  4. Wilson
  5. Hopfully Rock

Haven’t seen that they have activated him yet. My guess is next week.

They can activate him tomorrow I believe.  But I do agree, I doubt see him this week

If Roby can’t go or is hobbled the Texans have two new corners. This might get interesting.

With it being a away game not sure they would do that on game day. Someone has to be released also. Haven’t seen that yet. I think they will want a contact practice first.

Agreed. Just saying technically, they could. In practice, they wont.

    • With 3 interceptions Winston's QBR was 11 points higher (better) than Brissett. This shouldn't even be possible when you score 35 points but we did it.  Our completion % is horrible 
    • We're just starting to get all the pieces of the puzzle. This needs to continue, but we need to learn how to put them all together and play for 60 minutes.   We really need to figure out how to address suffering too many injuries. I suspect people are trying to overplay their positions and talent level. This is especially true when one player tries to cover the mistakes of another player. Just don't do it!
    • Agreed. That is what is so dang upsetting about this season. This TEAM is better at every position than it was two years ago and even last year (when healthy) except for one position. That being QB. Brissett is not a bad QB. He’s a solid QB but he’s still lacking in several non-physical areas. Being that they are mental, perhaps they can be coached out. But I don’t think he’s going to be much more than a Alex Smith type QB. I see that being his ceiling. Now does Ballard pull a magic trick and upgrade, maybe. That remains to be seen
    • The sticking with the zone D was my biggest disappointment. I don't expect miracles from Brissett or supposedly elite Hooker (who admittedly is tackling better but seems out of position a lot either by mistake or by the design of the D). Maybe they were afraid to play man out of some combination of fearing they couldn't match the speed of Goodwin/Evans or with Moore being out. But the zone obviously wasn't working. If they had to stick with it, couldn't they have at least changed it up to put at least one lb in the deep middle like Okereke to try and stop the not so slow death of playing zone D?
