Snap Counts: Colts-Texans, Wild Card Round

010519_ind-hou-wc-huddle

INDIANAPOLIS — It’s time to take a look at the unofficial snap counts from Saturday’s 2018 Wild Card Round matchup between the Indianapolis Colts and the Houston Texans.

The Colts might've been the sixth seed in the AFC playoff bracket entering the game against the third-seeded Texans, but it sure looked the exact opposite in Saturday's game — especially in the first half, as Indy took a 21-0 lead into the break. Houston was able to break through with a touchdown of its own in the second half, but by then it was too little, too late.

For Colts head coach Frank Reich, he was extremely pleased how his team won Saturday's Wild Card Round game. Indianapolis, which has won 10 of its last 11 games, ran for a single-game postseason franchise record 200 rushing yards, led by Marlon Mack's single-game postseason franchise record 148 yards on the ground. The defense, meanwhile, finished the day with 3.0 sacks, 3.0 tackles for loss, eight quarterback hits, four passes defensed and one interception.

Indianapolis advances to Saturday's Divisional Round matchup against the AFC's No. 1 seed, the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs finished the regular season with a 12-4 record, and boast the league's No. 1 offense, led by MVP hopeful Patrick Mahomes at quarterback; Mahomes completed 383-of-580 passes (65.9 percent) for 5,381 yards with 50 touchdowns to 13 interceptions this season. But the chink in Kansas City’s armor during the regular season was its defense, which ranked 31st in the league in yards, 32nd in first downs, 22nd in passing touchdowns, 27th in rushing yards and 31st in rushing average allowed.
