Texans Colts Predictions


Recommended Posts

The Texans racked up a whopping 7 points yesterday against the Bears & Trubisky threw three TDs. Granted, the Colts lucked out with the Texans fumble in the last game but that is football. There is no reason, none ,not one to believe the Colt won't win out this season.

The Texans really need to bounce back. Watson looks almost hopeless at this point, and if Crennell wants to avoid being booted from an interim job yet again they need to show something fast. Coming out and beating us would be a good start for that. Don’t expect the Texans to just roll over and die. It doesn’t matter how bad their season is going, they still take an immense pride in beating us, and it’s something they always get up for as a team.

Gotta contain Watson. Last game was a miserable series of missed tackles

and Watson running around wild. Contain him and they win. A repeat of the last game and Houston wins. 
I think our D will rise to the occasion.

Colts 33-20 winners. 4 fgs for Hot Rod.

Odd im the only one picking Texans 

 

I get that Colts won big Sunday but as proved a week ago Texans always play us tough .

 

Let's not overlook them

I agree, I'm surprised too. Just like the last matchup with them it is sort of a "trap game" but less so since we're deep into "must win" mode, so I think we're coming to play and win we do we're the better team. Watson and the Texans can be a scary threat to spoil some things, but I have a feeling we beat them pretty definitively this time. 16-27 Colts.

 

Every serious prediction I try to make with this one has me thinking it will be closer than I like, just because of what Watson is capable of.

He had a 43 QBR for that game.  He was running around alot, but not doing much.  He didn't do anything in the 2nd half.

 

I'll take a repeat of last time esepecially the -2 the Texans and Watson put up in the 2nd half.

Buckner tweeked  his ankle in practice yesterday and will be questionable Sunday. He did not practice today. Rigo will punt Sunday. I think Buckner will play but at least we have Autry this time and would be fine if he doesn’t.

I'm sure the coaches and players aren't over looking them.   It makes no difference if fans do

    • Very true.  Even day two.  After Pitts the drop off is significant.  There will be FAs with experience that would be just as good or better.  
    • I disagree with this. I believe Ballard didn't want to pay up for an EDGE rusher. He admitted he wanted Autry back, and he went to the Titans instead. That was plan A. Afterward, he signed Rochell and re-signed Muhammed to somewhat stabilize the D-Line. He is now having to decide whether to re-sign Houston, or draft an EDGE in the first two rounds.    We are being forced to see what we have in Banogu, Turay, and Lewis. They are all 2nd round picks and it's sink or swim for them. They definitely aren't better options than Autry and Houston. I would say the same about the top EDGE rushers in FA this year. Cheaper? Yes. Better? No. Right now, we don't have an EDGE rusher that we can depend on. Maybe that changes, but EDGE is our biggest weakness on the team, bar none. At least with LT, it can be masked with Q and the rest of the O-Line along with some solid depth we signed. We are literally masking the entire EDGE spot with Buckner right now, and we're fully dependant on signing Houston back, or drafting an EDGE rusher that makes an immediate impact without knowing yet if Banogu, Turay, or Lewis improves.   Unfortunately, losing Autry hurt pretty badly. That will be hard to make up without some luck.
    • Tremble has been one of my early favorites   I saw one of the commentators mention the other day, that Tremble has had issues with drops   The little games I have watched, they didnt throw much to him...... is this an issue?    
    • You may end up being right, but lets be honest, these 4 are not playmakers, they are just familiar names to us on a roster.   We need some pass rush to get this defensive scheme to work. None of these 4 have proven that they can bring this on a consistent basis   When the offensive line was weak, we drafted both Q and Smith in the same year   I hope they take the same tact this year. 1 early, and 1 mid rounds that can develop.   Also, 3 of these 4 are free agents next year. We will have some churn next year.   We had better load up at an important position, IMHO              
    • OtC has us at $23.5m w/o Carrie signing. I imagine he is close to minimum, but will figure him in at $2m for this. So that would be a top 51 cap hit of $1.2m. Dropping us to $22.3m.   Now if we were to sign Ertz and Houston for your $12m that would only be a top 51 cap hit of $10.4m, dropping our cap space to $11.9m.   Currently only 2 of our draft picks count against the top 51: #21 - $2.48m 2nd - $1.15m   Those 2 would only be a top 51 cap hit of $2m, dropping our cap space to $9.9m.     All other picks would fall below that threshold and not count against the top 51 cap.   Saying that, your scenario has us trading down(likely, imo), so good chance  it would be our 1st or 2nd, which would lower those cap hits.     So I would say your scenario would leave us with around $10m left.
