Three And Out: Useless Predictions For Sunday's Game

Dare I predict your Houston Texans do something on Sunday afternoon that they've NEVER done before--waltz into the RCA Dome and beat the Colts?  You'll have to wait until the end of this post to find that out.  And that, my friends, is what the folks in the business call a "tease."  It's also what I call 91.2% of the women I've dated, but I digress.  RIMSHOT!  Without further ado, three (3) things that shall come to pass on Sunday:

  1.  Remember in Week Three when Amobi Okoye sacked Peyton Manning?  Despite Amobi struggling with the rookie wall for much of October and November, he's recently shown signs of recapturing his early season form.  Thus, it is without any trepidation whatsoever that I proclaim that Amobi Okoye will sack Peyton Manning again on Sunday.
  2.  Indy didn't have to deal with Andre Johnson back in September, and I think it's fair to say that his presence could very well have changed how that fateful day played out.  I look for 'Dre to make up for lost time on Sunday by posting eight (8) catches for 121 yards and a TD.  In other words, what Santa Claus would do if he was the best wide receiver in the NFL.
  3.  He came damn close to doing it three (3) months ago before getting offed by a punter, and I believe that Jacoby Jones will finally notch his first regular season TD on Sunday.  I know, I know...I've called this several times before.  But this time's different.  It's never been December 20, 2007 before.
PUT YOUR NAME ON IT:  I would love nothing more than to pick your Houston Texans to beat the defending Super Bowl Champions on Sunday.  Really, I would.  Alas, I cannot.  It's going to be close, but I see the Colts having just a wee bit too much for our boys.  Call it Indianapolis 27, Houston 24.
