Research Notes

  • The Texans improve to 2-1 against the Colts when ANYBODY other than Peyton Manning is the starting quarterback after going 2-16 against Indy when Peyton was under center. They're scoring a touchdown more per game and allowing FAR fewer points and passing yards with Peyton out of the mix.

  • Matt Schaub posted a season-high 90.4 Total QBR against the Colts, his highest since Week 10 of last season against the Buccaneers (92.0). With the win, the Texans improve to 17-2 in games in which Schaub has an 85+ QBR over the last 5 seasons.

  • Houston sent five or more rushers on 52.9 percent of Andrew Luck's dropbacks on Sunday. Luck was able to handle the pressure in first and second down, but failed to complete a pass in five attempts on third down.

  • Arian Foster rushed for a season-high 165 yards, including 115 yards before contact. He had three rushes of at least 20 yards, including two rushes of at least 25 yards late in the fourth quarter to put the game out of reach. Entering the game, Foster had averaged 58.8 yards before contact per game with five 20+ yard rushes in 13 games.

  • J.J. Watt finished with three sacks on Sunday against the Colts, and had six plays overall tackling a Colt for a loss (10.5 percent of Indianapolis' total plays from scrimmage). Watt now has 34.5 disrupted dropbacks this season (sacks + passes defensed + interceptions), 15 more than the next-closest player (Aldon Smith). Watt has disrupted 5.9 percent of dropbacks faced by Houston's defense, with no other player higher than 4.0 percent.
