Jadeveon Clowney - 90.2 Run Defense Grade
He was an absolute monster along the lines of what he has become known for on this Texans defense. He scored a touchdown and the Colts rushing attack was almost non-existent. Clowney got after the quarterback but this is where he can truly show how back he is for the Texans.
Keke Coutee - 66.0 Offensive Grade
The grade might not match the box score here, but I am positive the coach's film would confirm some of this grade. Coutee was dynamic but there are certainly rookie mistakes Coutee made. He had a drop early and Bill O'Brien mentioned Coutee will see some of his mistakes and be even better when he corrects those mistakes.
Kendall Lamm - 69.4 Pass Block Grade
Taking over at right tackle Lamm performed well in his opportunity. This is the highest grade he's ever turned in. He played well slowing down a sneaky good Colts defense. Though his run block grade, 43.2, needs some improvement.
Shareece Wright - 61.8 Defensive Grade
This isn't the best grade but good enough for Wright who was pressed into heavy duty for the Texans after showing up after the season started. Wright will be getting a lot of work with Aaron Colvin's injury. He graded out 10 points higher than Johnathan Joseph and 30 points higher than Colvin.
Demarcus Lawrence - 11.4 Pass Rush Productivity
Only Khalil Mack has a better rating in this statistic. It combines sacks, hits and hurries relative to how many times they rush the passer. Lawrence is a pass rushing monster. He attacks the quarterback from the left side as good as anyone. He leads the league in sacks and could end up being one of the most terrorizing forces on the Texans schedule.
