In his first career playoff game Carlos Hyde had a game-high 16 carries but averaged only 3.0 ypc for a total of 48 yards. His most notable contribution to the game was a walk-in five-yard touchdown pass to take a 19-16 lead late in the fourth quarter.
The Texans continued to stick with Hyde and the running game even though they were trailing 16-0 in the second half. That type of commitment is a positive for Carlos Hyde as the Texans travel to Kansas City for the Divisional Round of the playoffs. Fellow running back Duke Johnson had three rushing attempts and three receptions in the contest.
