The league average was slightly more than 53% passing/47% rushing (New England was right at the average), & the Texans were 10th lowest in the pass/run ratio. That makes sense as they were attempting to keep the pass rush off Carr as well as develop their new found running game. Still, the Texans were one of only 4 teams with losing records that had a below average pass/run ratio. Usually teams with that low a ratio are protecting leads late in the 4th quarter.
What are we talking about here, really? One or two plays a game where the Texans might have been better served taking a shot downfield rather than another draw? Maybe with the addition of Wade and the maturation of the QB/WR combo, they'll take those chances.
