2. Take advantage of a weak Colts secondary
The Indianapolis Colts do not have a great secondary. Especially with a receiving corps like the Texans, the Colts will not have a chance to try to defend the Texans. In the Week 4 game against the Colts, DeAndre Hopkins played his best game of the season thus far, catching 10 receptions for 169 yards and one touchdown.
Keke Coutee caught 11 receptions for 109 yards and Will Fuller had four receptions for 49 yards and a touchdown. The trio of receivers for the Texans amassed a total of 25 receptions for a whopping 327 yards and two touchdowns. Although Fuller is injured, Demaryius Thomas has done a great job taking over Fuller’s spot, so the passing game should not be a problem.
It is crucial for head coach Bill O’Brien to take advantage of the Colts’ weak secondary. This will allow the Texans’ offense to run all over the Colts and could lead to an easier game.
In addition, the Texans should integrate Coutee into the lineup more. The Colts clearly exposed a big gap when defending the slot receiver. This will allow Coutee to once again express his dominance against the Colts.
