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

Colts Offense

21st in total yards per game (343.8)

28/29th (tied) in passing yards per game (202.7)

4th in total rushing yards per game (141.1)

16th in total points per game (22.7)

8th in Red Zone Offense % (63.16)

17/18th best in INTs thrown (8)

DNP (Monday) - Alie-Cox TE (Thumb), Castonzo LT (Toe), Ebron TE (Ankle), Hilton WR (Calf), Wilkins RB (ankle)

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

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.

    • Colts Mailbag Colts.com beat writer Andrew Walkers take on Chad Kelly getting a chance...   “Do you envision Colts giving Chad Kelly a chance to show what he can do because I have seen him play numerous times. I do believe that he can be a superior player to Brissett and Hoyer.”   Walker: We get this question (or a version of it) a lot, Jess, and, no, at this point I don’t really see Chad Kelly getting an opportunity to play any sort of significant snaps at quarterback for the Colts over the final four games of the regular season (barring any unforeseen injuries, of course). That’s just my take on the situation. Kelly’s not only the third-string quarterback, but it seems as if the Colts would want to continue to see what they have in starter Jacoby Brissett, no matter how the rest of the season plays out. Then there’s this: Indy doesn’t even typically carry three quarterbacks on its active roster, so while Kelly has clearly done a good job coming in and showing development and taking advantage of his opportunities, his status, according to Frank Reich, remains “week-to-week.”   “Chad has earned it,” Reich said on Nov. 27, when asked how long the team would likely keep three quarterbacks on the 53-man roster. “He has done a good job. So right now we have been able to do that. We will probably stay that way as long as we can.”   https://www.colts.com/news/mailbag-adam-vinatieri-nfl-draft-2019-week-14-tampa-bay-buccaneeers
    • I think the Bucs win this one. We don’t have the fire power in the passing game to keep up with them. 
    • I guess that is in College football. In the NFL, you have to be touched.
    • Lol Jacoby isn’t going on IR. Looks like he didn’t even need the big brace in practice this week.
    • With Leonard yes but not having Moore that might hurt some blitzing.
