The Colts went up 24-0 in the first quarter this Week 6 Thursday Night Football matchup. Could’ve been another blowout, but the Texans made of game of it.
Colts-Texans could come down to a last-second field goal, and it appears to be an excellent week to play perhaps the greatest placekicker in NFL history in the Colts’ Adam Vinatieri.
Could this be it-the first competitive Thursday night game of the 2014 NFL season? The Colts visit Houston as just a three-point favorite, and both teams are 3-2, so at the risk of being the Mary Swanson to your Lloyd Christmas, I’m saying there’s a chance.
The Houston Texans are looking better in 2014 and the Indianapolis Colts have turned things around after a slow start to the year.

The last time Broncos star left tackle Ryan Clady was involved in joint preseason practices, he got into a fight with current teammate DeMarcus Ware, then of the Dallas Cowboys.
The Minnesota Vikings have a long tradition of having very good defensive tackles. They drafted Sharrif Floyd in the first round of the 2013 draft in hopes that he can continue the trend. He learned a lot of from former teammate Kevin Williams and slimmed down in the offseason to reach his full potential. This season should be the beginning of the Floyd era in Minnesota.
