I thought I noticed a lot of interesting alignments and movement along the defensive front. So, I went back and charted every play in the first half of the game. Here are the observations I thought were interesting:

In 41 plays:

Texans Defense played Nickel all 41 first half plays (a key to the game)

9 blitzes in 41 plays (always 5 rushing)

0 DB blitzes.

Texans played a 3-3 alignment on 6 plays. They blitzed 4 of 6 times out of that alignment and dropped 8 players into coverage twice. They never rushed 4 men when in the 3-3 defense (Nickel version of 3-4). CONTINUE READING (http://www.texansbullblog.com/film-study-defensive-line-alignment-indy/featured-articles/film-study/)

"Nading/Cushing played 5 snaps at LB. They played both DE spots the rest of the snaps."

Cushing?

Oops! Barwin... that would be a big story!
