B+. Lamar Miller was criticized for his lack of effectiveness in the run game on this site recently. While it’s pretty certain he couldn’t care less about that, he did respond with one of his better outings as a Texan.
<p>His final rushing yards wasn’t his most as he recorded 82 yards on 19 carries. What was nice was his 4.3 yard per carry average. He allowed Houston to control the clock near the end and was enough of a threat to open up some deep passes.</p>
<p>The team limited his total carries and it seemed to work. It could be a huge benefit to the team moving forward if he can continue to average above the four-yard mark going forward. </p>. RB. Houston Texans. LAMAR MILLER
