Everyone already knows that for this offense to succeed we have to run, run, and run the ball. After that, it's a snap to play action pass, run the bootleg, and even (gulp) run the QB up the middle. Our success running the ball provides that domino effect that makes everything else work and gives you the following stats. Texans - Run 42 Pass 23 Total 65 Colts - Run 18 Pass 27 Total 45 We ran 20 more plays Time of Possession - Texans - 35.59 Colts - 24.01 We held the ball 11 minutes more than they did and in the 4th Q we had the ball 10:47 min. to their 4.13. Carr can now manage the game like Kub wants without having to force the ball downfield when it's not there. I noticed they even handed off to Dayne on a few 2nd and long plays. Now that's confidence in your running game. Special Teams needs noting as well. Out of 7 drives for the Colts, they started 5 inside the 25 yd line. We had two starting at our 39 and one in Colts territory at the 47. Dexter has been a great pickup for this team. His last return to the 39 was huge. Especially after AJ got caught holding and negated Dayne's last TD run. That one mistake could have easily lost us the game had we ended up in OT and the Colts win the coin toss. Just goes to show you that you can play a perfect game and one mistake will make the difference between winning and losing. Give us back that TD and we cruise to a win. To beat the Colts, this team had to execute perfectly and that's what they did. Run the ball effectively, control the clock, win the field position game, no sacks, no int. and no fumbles. Sounds like a lot and it is. This was a great team effort and hats off to the players and to Kub for some great playcalling. Next up is da Browns......think we'll be running the ball?
