Lamar Miller ran for 61 yards on 18 carries Thursday in the Houston Texans' 13-9 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. He added three receptions for 26 yards.
Miller has been quiet through two games, totaling just 126 yards with no touchdowns.
Miller rushed 18 times for 61 yards and secured all three targets for 26 yards in Thursday's 13-9 win over the Bengals.
With rookie Deshaun Watson starting his first NFL game, the plan clearly called for a heavy emphasis on the ground attack. Miller and rookie D'Onta Foreman thus entered halftime with eight rushing touches apiece, but Miller pulled away in the second half. His post-intermission efforts included a key 19-yard scamper on the Texans' final scoring drive, a 13-play march that culminated in a Ka'imi Fairbairn field goal. Despite a serviceable final line, Miller did find tough sledding on the ground overall, totaling just 42 yards in his 17 other totes. However, if Watson continues to develop as a passer as expected, that dimension, coupled with the threat he poses with his legs, should allow Miller to face some beatable seven-man fronts as the season unfolds. He'll look to build on Thursday's performance against the Patriots in Week 3.
Lamar Miller ran for 65 yards on 17 carries Sunday in the Houston Texans' 29-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. He added two receptions for 31 yards.
Miller had a solid enough showing in the opener, but clearly better play from the quarterback position and Houston's offensive line would go a long way toward improving his numbers even more.
Miller rushed 17 times for 65 yards and caught both of his targets for 31 more in Sunday's 29-7 Week 1 loss to the Jaguars.
Miller played well, given the score and the awful quarterback play around him. Tom Savage and Deshaun Watson combined for just 164 passing yards with one touchdown and four turnovers, allowing Jacksonville to stack the box and corral Miller. The 26-year-old running back will suffer from a lack of scoring opportunities unless the Houston offense as a whole takes a dramatic step forward from here on out.
