Right Combination: Miller TD gives Texans 10-3 lead

Posted Dec 11, 2016

The Texans took a 10-3 advantage when Lamar Miller scored a second quarter touchdown.

The lone Texans' touchdown on Sunday at Indianapolis was Lamar Miller's two-yard jaunt into the end zone in the second quarter.
 

The running back went off for 107 yards on 21 carries in the 22-17 victory over the Colts, but none were as effortless as his second-quarter scoring run. Miller was untouched, he said, because of the blocking from his teammates.
 

"Aw man, they made my job easy," Miller said. "Everybody just got moving up front. (Jay) Prosch, the fullback, just did a great job of getting his hat on a guy. I was just trying to get speed through the hole, just make a play."
 

It was the fifth possession of the game for the Texans, and it broke up a 3-3 tie. 
 

Miller and company began the drive at their own 20-yard line, with 9:45 left in the first half. From there, they reeled off 12 plays and burned 7:19 off the game clock. Miller had runs of eight, seven and six yards on the drive's first three plays. He then was stopped for no gain, but quarterback Brock Osweiler found DeAndre Hopkins for a 22-yard gain on the next play. 

 

The Texans then ran five straight times, with Miller getting back to the line of scrimmage, Alfred Blue picking up five, Akeem Hunt zig-zagging for 19, and Miller carrying for two and three yards. 
 

Then, on 3rd-and-5 at the Colts 8-yard line, Osweiler found tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz, who made a diving grab to set up 1st-and-goal at the 2. 
 

Miller sauntered in on the next play, and the Texans held a 10-3 lead with 2:26 left in the second quarter.
