Sunday Night Football heads to Houston as the Texans welcome in the Colts for an AFC South clash.
The Texans currently sit in first place at 3-2, while the Colts sit tied for 2nd at 2-3.
The Colts haven’t looked pretty this season, but they’ve managed to grab a pair of wins to avoid digging themselves an early season hole.
Indianapolis opted to pick up the tempo on Sunday and it ended up working out it was eventually a 29-23 victory over the Bears.
QB Andrew Luck benefited the most from the up tempo pace as he finished with 28 of 39 for 322 yards with a pair of touchdowns. His final touchdown found TY Hilton for the go ahead score as the Colts need him and Hilton to continue their connection going forward.
RB Frank Gore has also been a big part of this offense. Gore has averaged 4.2 yards per carry as he has taken some of the pressure off Luck.
With the Colts going up against the best pass defense in the NFL, Gore will play a huge part here on Sunday night. Look for him to get a lot of touches early on to try and open up the pass game a bit for Luck.
The Texans sit in first place of the division, but all is not well for them.
This past offseason, they dished out a lot of money to make Brock Osweiler a franchise QB. Through 5 weeks of his contract he continues to struggle to live up to the expectations.
Osweiler threw for just 184 yards on 19 of 42 passing in the Texans loss to the Vikings on Sunday.
This year, Osweiler has thrown for just 1133 yards while tossing 7 interceptions. He has yet to eclipse the 300 yard mark and has been under 200 yards twice now.
This team has leaned on the defense, who has allowed just 20.8 points per game. They have allowed just 300 yards of offense against them as they have no allowed any sort of big plays on a consistent basis.
With the tempo they’ll deal with here, look for them to really put pressure on Luck and try to force him into some bad throws and mistakes.
