WHEN THE TEX­ANS RUN

Houston Chronicle Sunday - - SPORTS SUNDAY -

The Tex­ans don’t run as well as the Chiefs, but they’re no slouches, rank­ing fifth in rush­ing. La­mar Miller (257 yards) and D’Onta Fore­man (114) share the heavy-duty work. De­shaun Wat­son has 148 yards rush­ing, more than any quar­ter­back in the league. Miller (3.8) and Fore­man (3.4) don’t have im­pres­sive av­er­ages be­cause the line has strug­gled. The best show­ing by the line­men was against Ten­nessee when they did some se­ri­ous pan­cak­ing, in­clud­ing on the sec­ond level. The Chiefs are 20th against the run. If they can han­dle the run with six in the box, they’ll have more play­ers for cov­er­age. If their front seven is stout, the Tex­ans may be un­able to get a push. The Chiefs have to be pre­pared for Wat­son to run the read op­tion and QB draws.
