    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

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

    Cushing?
