Tonight the Indianapolis Colts play the Houston Texans in Reliant Stadium. Andrew Luck is throwing the rock with authority this year and is the NFL’s leader for passing yards with 1617 yards after 5 games of the regular season. The Colts have been on a role as of lately and tonight they will face a very strong Houston team that has been pretty solid themselves. The Thursday night games so far for the NFL have been pretty lopsided, but tonight that might not change. The Colts have owned their opponents on Thursday Night games especially when their team is on the road.
The Colts have won seven consecutive road games on Thursday Night. The road teams are 1-3 in Thursday games this season, but expect that number to go to 2-3 tonight.
The Texans will need a huge game from J.J. Watt who leads the NFL in batted passes since entering the NFL in 2011. If Watt can continue to apply pressure on the Colts and slow him down the game could be relatively close.
