Indianapolis Colts

The Indianapolis Colts are fresh from a victory against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The team thrashed the opponent with an endgame score of 33-13. Jacoby Brissett played his QB role capably, going for 15/24 and 148 passing yards. He also chucked in 1 TD and 1 interception. Jonathan Williams took the helm of rushing. He carried the ball 13 times for a total of 116 yards. Marcus Johnson was there to catch the ball 4 times, helping the team gain another 38 yards.

The Colts had decent stats. They plugged in 23 first downs with a minimum of 3 penalties that cost them 20 yards. They ran for 36 out of 63 plays, which allowed them to garner more scoring opportunities. The team gained 389 yards as compared to the opponent’s 279 yards. 

The defensive line was average, allowing the opponents a 70% completion rate on throws. The rush defense was impressive, only allowing 9 attempts. This is a clear indicator that the Colts were able to shut down the opponent’s scoring engine. Teams that relied heavily on one type of offense tend to be stifled if they’re faced with indomitable defense.

Houston Texans

The Texans were pummelled by one of the league leaders, the Baltimore Ravens, during their last matchup. The Texans were only able to squeak out 7 points versus the opponent’s 41. QB Deshaun Watson was 18/29 for 169 air yards. He wasn’t able to score a thrown touchdown. Carlos Hyde compensated for this, doing 9 carries at 65 yards. His long run of 41 yards was enough to merit him a rushing touchdown. DeAndre Hopkins caught the ball 7 times, adding in an important 80 yards.

The team rushed for 20 out of 57 plays. The Colts favored a mixed type of offense in response to the difficult defense that they faced. This did not bode well for them, as they were reduced in terms of scoring opportunities. The Texans also had a weak defense, allowing their opponents a disappointing 74% completion rate on throws. But the clincher was the 36 allowed rush attempts which, more often than not, resulted in a touchdown.

The Texans were obviously outclassed by their previous opponents. They now face a team with a similar win-loss record. The Texans will be hungry for revenge.
