Texans are a ‘run identity team’

Kyle Allen might not have actually begun yet for the Houston Texans, however he is aware of what makes the offense tick.

The brand-new beginning quarterback, who will be making his Texans launching versus the Miami Dolphins Sunday at 12:00 p.m. Central Time at Hard Rock Stadium, met press reporters Nov. 25 and discussed the identity of the offense.

“It’s great, and we’ve committed to [the run], too,” stated Allen. “That’s why last game when we were struggling in the run game, it hurts the whole offense. We’re a run identity team.”

The Texans were not able to move the football on the ground in their 23-10 loss to Washington at NRG Stadium in Week 11. Rookie running back Dameon Pierce was stymied with 10 brings for 8 backyards. The offense’s only hurrying goal originated from quarterback Davis Mills on a 4-yard scramble. The since-benched signal caller had a team-high 10 backyards on 5 brings. The Texans produced 21 backyards on 16 brings for the afternoon.

Allen, who has actually not begun a video game in the NFL considering that 2020 with Washington when he went 1-3, is enthused about the Texans’ running back steady.

“It’s great,” Allen stated. “Dameon has played awesome. Rex (Burkhead) is a seasoned vet in the league, he’s played great. Dare (Ogunbowale) has been awesome in the spurts he’s got, too. We’ll need to get him going on Sunday.”

The Dolphins might offer a chance as they quit 4.9 backyards per bring, connected for the ninth-most in the NFL. Their 116.9 hurrying backyards gave up per video game (16th) and 256 hurrying efforts versus (seventh-fewest) recommend Miami chases their opposition out of the run early due to their own offense’s capability to produce dynamite plays. If the Texans have the ability to develop the run early and play to their own identity, they might challenge whether Miami is really stopping the run or requiring groups to desert it.
