Week 5, October 8th: at Texans, 8:25 EST on NFL Network/CBS (Thursday Night Football)
This game will be all about the return of former longtime Houston Texans wideout Andre Johnson to the only home that he once upon a time only ever knew. Johnson is the Texans franchise all-time leader in receptions (1,012), receiving yards (13,597), and receiving touchdowns (64) and quite frankly, is one of the best players to ever wear a Texans uniform (J.J Watt says hello!).
While there are sure to be some hard feelings by the Texans faithful, Johnson should be beloved in that city for being one of the few bright spots on an oft-struggling expansion franchise.
If the Colts are going to drop a game in the AFC South, this is the one that figures to be the most dangerous, as emotions should be plenty high with Johnson’s return, especially with him joining a heated AFC South rival.
The Colts won this matchup 33-28 in Week 6 on Thursday Night Football last season, and if this game once again on Thursday Night Football is anything like last year’s, we’re all in for a real treat.
