Week 4: at Indianapolis Colts

All RB vs IND

FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Texans managed had a rough day rushing the ball last week with only 59 total yards on the ground. Lamar Miller gained just 10 yards on 10 rushing attempts as he found literally no room to run while Deshaun Watson led the team with 36 rushing yards. Miller had been fine until last week with close to 5.0 yards per rush attempt, but the Texans found themselves behind early with a poor game script for the run, forcing Miller to be more active in the passing game. Despite the poor outing, Miller still has little to no competition for workhorse running back role. Deshaun Watson is now averaging 40 rushing yards per game with consistent rushing totals this season (40, 44, and 36 yards). The Colts run defense turned in their second poor performance of the season last week as they allowed the Eagles to amass a whopping 152 rushing yards and one rushing touchdown in the loss last week. After shutting down Adrian Peterson the week prior, the Colts defensive front was simply overwhelmed by the talented Eagles offensive line and high powered ground game. The Colts do have a couple impact players on defense with Margus Hunt playing well on the interior and rookie linebacker Darius Leonard flying all over the field with a league-leading 41 tackles and a slew of run stops. Outside of that, the Colts are indeed lacking talent on the front seven to put up a consistent fight against the run. The Texans offensive line has looked better in run blocking than pass blocking this season, but they still are very much a bottom tier unit overall, making it tough to give them the nod in this matchup even if facing a suspect Colts run defense.
