NFL teams don't have the luxury of looking past the game directly in front of them. But fans sure can.
So what's it going to be when the Colts come to town for a primetime match-up on Thursday night? A 2-2 Houston Texans team that has seemingly righted the ship, looking to take control of the AFC South? Or a 1-3 Texans squad staring into the abyss of a possible 1-4 start and the very real prospect of having taken a sizable step back in Bill O'Brien's second season at the helm? The difference is stark and depends entirely on what happens today in Atlanta against the Falcons.
