It doesn’t look like to many are going to miss the game. Even if Ebron misses we will be ok. The big one to watch is if Desir plays or not because I don’t think Rock is playing. If we swap Desir with rock we should be fine. If Desir can’t go Wilson is just going to have to step up. Over then that we don’t look as bad as the injury report looked yesterday. It’s much better today.
Houston has given up 6.61 yards a rush since Watt went out. Plus they are most likely down two safeties. One in Reid who is a pretty good player. Then add Johnson out. They will be relying on Joseph and the two new corners they just got. I think we are actually in better shape then they are. We have depth which is good.
If we win this game we are two games up with the Texans playing NE the week after. We also need to beat the titans because they are 5-5 and it’s possible they could actually go ahead of us and Houston. They play the jags Sunday I believe. We need the jags to win. We are in such great shape with a win Thursday. If we go in and impose our will like we did against the jags we will win. Reich said today he thinks defense is playing as good as anyone in the league.
We’ve done a good bit of traveling to away games over the years. Been to KC and Green Bay and those are a step ahead of Indy. Others that we’ve been to - not so much. Love Tenn but not a great game environment. A few others the same.
I believe LOS can get plenty loud. Been a season ticket holder there since the beginning. I find myself on a key 3rd down intently watching the play instead of yelling my head off. Maybe it’s an age thing.
Clearly the manning to luck to Brissett has had an impact. Plus the Colts have mishandled a couple of situations or at least the perception that they did is there I see other cities with plainly visible pockets of empty seats. Maybe just the nature of sports these days.
