Houston Texans Morning Huddle–Osweiler’s Eyes
Here are your daily Houston Texans stories for Sunday:
Osweiler’s eyes are giving him away by Sports Xchange
"Osweiler has a habit of locking onto his primary read, staring down his targets, often allowing defensive players to simply read his eyes to determine which direction the football is going.Osweiler looked at Pro Bowl wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins from the moment he took the snap, failing to use a head fake or pump fake to get the defense off-balance. Because of that shortcoming and a fast reaction from Jamie Collins, Osweiler never saw the gifted Patriots outside linebacker breaking on the football as he undercut his errant pass intended for Hopkins."
This is a good breakdown. Brock Osweiler needs to do a better job of looking off his primary target. It will prevent the defense from sitting on routes. That will be instrumental in cutting down on the interceptions–he has four in three games.

Miller’s workload being monitored closely by Patrick Starr, State of the Texans
"Lamar Miller continues his track to a 400 carry pace for the season with 74 carries through three games for the Houston Texans. Miller has never carried the football over 25 times in a game with the Miami Dolphins and now he has accomplished that twice in three games, putting some work on the Texans featured back. With those 74 carries, Miller has 269 yards and averages 3.6 yards per carry, which is well off his 4.6 yards per carry with the Miami Dolphins.The Texans are trying to find the right combination for Miller and get him to the edge more but have primarily asked him to run inside the tackles in the power game, which is not his strong suit. Bill O’Brien is trying to even out things for Miller and the Texans running game."
The Texans need to cut down on Lamar Miller’s carries. At this rate, he won’t be fresh when they need him to play big in December.
