Millionaires — Houston Texans
Andrew Luck is a very special quarterback. In his career, he’s thrown 14 touchdowns and three interceptions while going 5-1 against the Houston Texans. But that was before a shoulder injury sidelined him last week. For this year, the Colts have defeated the Titans and Jaguars by a total of five points while losing to Buffalo outright in week 1. Luck’s five TDs have yet to overcome his seven picks in addition to being sacked five times in three starts. His magic is certainly in question. The offensive pieces that surround him are mediocre at best. The Texans will look for the run to counter any Colts offensive point total. Adrian Foster looks to be on track after getting back on the field last week.
It’s definitely up to the Texan defense to win this game by stopping the Colts and Luck. They failed to show up on the road last week against Atlanta and played horribly in their look ahead to this game. Even at 1-3, this is the Texans first divisional game and are full of hope and excitement as this is when their season begins. Ryan Mallett will be on a short leash and really needs to get back on track. Having Foster in the backfield can only help. Look for Mallett to go to DeAndre Hopkins about 10 times and added with a great defensive effort the Texans lock up a win tonight.
