Colts @ Texans Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts fans!  :default_20smile: Our Indianapolis Colts try to go above their 6-6 regular season record, as they are in Southeast Texas to play the 9-3 and AFC South leading Houston Texans,  Texans are on a nine-game winning streak since losing their first three games of the regular season, hence their 9-3 record, but the Colts certainly won't be their tenth straight opponent  in as many games to continue their streak.

 

Colts seek to win again in Houston's NRG Stadium this after Jacoby Brissett threw 2 touchdown passes, both to T.Y Hilton from 45 and 80 yards, and Adam Vinitieri added his two field goals from 22 and 53 yards, and his 2 PAT's, for the 20-14 final back on November 5, 2017.

 

Colts seeks to avenge their earlier loss, when Texans kicker Ka'imi Fairbairn kicked his game-winning, 37-yard field goal with 5:00 left in overtime, to help Houston defeat Indianapolis 37-34, at the real Lucas Oil Stadium back on September 30.

 

Indianapolis still leads the all-time regular season series over the Houston Texans over any NFL opponent since the series and rivalry in the AFC South began in September 2002 at 25 wins and 8 losses, but the Texans has won 4 of the last 6 games since December 2015.

 

Texans record has improved by five games in 2018, and were 4-8 after  13 weeks of the 2017 NFL season, due to their second-year QB. DeShaun Watson. Watson may have won NFL Rookie Of The Year and help the Texans from their 4-12 record last year, and continue setting both Texans and NFL rookie record, if it wasn't his torn ACL he suffered in practice after a Week 8 loss in Seattle.

 

NRG Stadium's retractable roof will likely be closed, because mostly cloudy skies at 50 degrees, feels like 47 degrees, is the local forecast for this afternoon's 1:05 PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with 0%  precipitation, 63% humidity, and north/northwest winds at 8 miles per hour.

 

Head Linesman Bill Vinovich and his NFL officiating crew will supervise the game action in the NRG Field between the Colts and Texans.

 

Colts and Texans players continue to participate  during December's 'My Cause, My Cleats,' campaign, by wearing their personal Nike custom-designed football cleats they wear on the field during game action , to raise public aware and support their personal causes and charities.

     

NO injuries, win your seventh straight on the road as they Texans have done earlier in Indianapolis, and LET'S GO COLTS!!!!!   :rock:  :coltslogo:    :1colts:  :colts:   :1colts:   :coltslogo:    :rock:

I'll also predict 28-14 Colts win over Texans Coltsbestever, considering Andrew Luck has more veteran NFL experience and leadership than DeShaun Watson, Colts defence has to also contain and overcome the Texans from the NFL's #5 scoring offense while the Colts have the #15 scoring offense. GO COLTS!!     :coltslogo:  :coltshelmet:  :colts:

Houston is due for a loss, and this week is a good time for that. TY Hilton was questionable, but it looks like he will be playing. That's a positive sign.

No team is ever "due" for a loss or even a win. That's like seeing 10 red spaces come up on a roulette wheel and betting the farm on black because it's "due". The bottom line is that Kelly is probably out, Watt and Clowney are going to wreck havoc, and we are out of sync on offense. We need to establish the run today, get pressure on Watson again like last time, and not turn the ball over.

 

I think we get beat 27-17 or something close. This is a bad matchup for us.

Huge game for both teams.   Houston is in the hunt for a bye and home field advantage.   Maybe more importantly, they want to establish themselves as the class of the division.   It's going to be tough for the Colts to win this one.   I think the Texans win 31-17.    

It's not like the Colts don't have a chance though.   If Luck is on it and can have a good game, we can stay in this game.  

 

It'll be fun to see how both of these teams play in such a crucial game.  Do or die for the Colts.

I hope we can get the run game going today. I think it’s the only way Luck isn’t sacked 4+ times again.

 

Go Colts!

Decent field position here. I liked the 3rd and short situation last drive. Gotta think Ebron will make up for that drop.

    • Looks like we will get both back Sunday. With all the WR injuries I am excited to watch Campbell the last four games and see what he does. He should get lots of opportunities.    
    • Yeah, most mocks I've seen have Herbert going around 8-10, so if that holds we would have to trade up but Love or Eason should fall to us. It's gonna be interesting to see it play out, see if Ballard gets spooked and trades up, or has the nuts to wait and see if they fall...or even ballsier to wait and see if someone falls to the Redskins 2nd.   Hell, he may not go QB in the 1st, if they don't I'm really hoping they get a guy like Lamb, Higgins, or Shenault, a big bodied X receiver to compliment the speed of TY and Campbell. 
    • LOL. I'm not saying college is comp to NFL. What I am saying is if you're trying to gauge his ability to play vs tougher  or elite competition, Bama's D was tops in college for many of those years. I'm not saying his O in college could compete with NFL teams. I'm saying Bama had some of the best talent in college, and for instance, that would translate into increased pressure, tighter windows, etc....   And HS to College really isn't a good comp either. I played for a HS that won state twice while I was there. I had no delusions of them competing against a college team. I might take LSU or OSU over the Bengals this year though lol.
    • This mischaracterizes the issue in its entirety.  Just because it takes a long time for QBs to find generational talents at QB is not a reason they shouldn't try to get better at the position if the team doesn't have a generational talent at QB.  Bill Belichick has had Brady for the past 20 years and he's still drafted a QB every other year.  In the past 10 years, he's drafted 3 QBs in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.     It seems as though what you have in mind is teams selling the farm to trade up and take the #1 QB in the class at #1.  There are so many other viable ways ot get franchise QBs better than the one we have.  If we used a 2nd or 3rd on a QB, could it be the next Drew Brees or Russel Wilson?  Maybe.  But even if it's not and he sits a year and then ends up being better than Brissett, that's a win.  We can try again in another year or two.  You should always try to improve your roster and add valuable depth, no matter what the position is.     Yeah, we have a mediocre QB.  We should still be using higher draft capital and perhaps trading up in cases where it makes sense.  
    • At least he would add to the running game.  But still, no thanks. I'll take our chances in the draft.
