Before the 2019 season began, this was supposed to be all about Deshaun Watson and Andrew Luck, with DW4 trying to avenge the Texans’ embarrassing home loss in the Wild Card Round of last year’s NFL Playoffs. Now the focus is on whether the explosive offense we’ve seen from the Texans the last two weeks will travel to Indianapolis. If it does, the odds are extraordinarily good Houston will move to 5-2 and find themselves with a commanding lead in the AFC South. If it doesn’t, Jacoby Brissett and the Colts will likely improve to 4-2 and to the top of the same division. It’s only Week Seven, but this is a game with real consequences.
As we watch the clock tick toward noon, discuss Texans, Colts, and anything else football-related to your heart’s content in the Comments. The first quarter thread will post at 11:45 a.m. CDT.
