Our analysts and experts break down the most important angles of this game.
Here’s an excerpt, but you can read the full story here.
I am by no means enamored with the backfield duo of Carlos Hyde and Duke Johnson Jr., but on a team level, the Texans have been efficient on the ground with their 0.55 rushing success rate and 5.0 yards per carry.
It helps that they have one of the league’s better rushing quarterbacks in Watson, who has averaged 5.9 yards per carry for his career. And Hyde is actually having a better season than most people realize. His 4.3 yards per carry is acceptable, and his 0.59 rushing success rate is exemplary: It’s actually the highest rate in the league for any lead back.
