Lamar Miller hungry for more TDs

Lamar Miller hungry for more TDs
Now that Lamar Miller has found the endzone, he wants to do it again.
And again.
"It felt good," Miller said. "I haven't been in the endzone since last year so for me, it was a blessing. I was just happy to get my feet wet to get into the endzone."
Miller rushed for a season-high 149 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's overtime win over the Colts. He also had a receiving touchdown on a ten-yard catch-and-run late in the fourth quarter. He credits the Texans offensive line for his performance in the 26-23 victory.
"I just thing the offensive line did a great job just giving me the opportunity and I was just going off them guys, you know, just trying to make a play," Miller said. 
The Texans starting running back currently ranks third in the AFC and fifth in the NFL with 520 yards rushing. Each week, Miller has gradually gotten more comfortable in the offense and has worked on his blocking and decision-making. 
"When you are in space and you get past that first level, making the next defender miss - he did that quite a few times - some of those big plays over 15 yards were not only just receivers downfield but also him creating some extra lanes there to get a few more extra yards," offensive coordinator George Godsey said.
With the return of starters Derek Newton and Jeff Allen to the right side of the offensive line, Miller will run behind a healthy unit for the first time this season when the Texans return to primetime to face the Broncos.
"That's what everybody dreams of growing up, playing Monday Night Football," Miller said. "You're the only game on TV. The whole world is watching and I'm pretty much excited."
The (4-2) Texans travel to Denver to face the (4-2) Broncos on Monday Night Football in Week 7. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. CT on ESPN and SportsRadio 610.
