They could be in the bottom quartile of the league in the run game for the last 6 years, but it isn't a big concern, because they have that offense.
The game against Miami is one that comes to mind. Miami ran that wildcat all up & down the Colts, controlled the ball for 45+ minutes.
But that offense was able to score enough points for the win regardless.
Scroll to the bottom of this link
Indy had to score 27 points in 14:53
They had to score more than 23 points in 5 games last year
. But no one is crying about their defense.
No one takes a microsope to the Colts, because they win 10-12 games
a year. Going in-depth to highlight their weaknesses is "nit-picking."
You finish with 10-12 wins every dang year, people will give you the
benefit of the doubt when you lose.
The Texans lose as much as they win, and have for the last three
seasons. Thus, people will break this team down to a microscopic level
to determine WHY the Texans can't seem to reach the "10-12 win-per-year" club.
The Colts are the Colts. The Texans are the Texans.
The Texans have YET to prove they belong on the same FIELD as the Colts.
MNF is a huge game. The Texans must win this division, before they win
new believers. MNF will go a long way to show "where this team's 'hoyt' is at!"
