Your Houston Texans have not lost a game at home yet this season. Tonight, they welcome the Colts to NRG Stadium, hoping that the evening concludes with that streak still going strong, Houston once again sporting a two-game lead in the division, and Bill O'Brien steadying a ship that many fans believe has taken on water. To make that a reality, the Texans will need their offense, led by Brock Osweiler, to perform much better than it has for much of the 2016 season. Here's hoping that wish comes true, as this place will devolve into an asylum (more so, anyway) if the Texans lose to the Colts tonight and the offense looks impotent against what may well be the worst defense in the entire NFL.
