Rookie record holder Davis Mills and your Houston Texans take on the upended Indianapolis Colts this weekend. While the Colts nearly beat the Baltimore Ravens, the Texans are coming off a near-upset of their own of the New England Patriots. With both teams jockeying for the bottom of the worst division in football, this game should be of no interest to anyone outside the team’s fanbases.
