Colts at Texans: Week 5 Where to Watch


The Indianapolis Colts (2-2) hit the road to face the Houston Texans (1-3). The Colts are hoping to win a record 16th straight game against a division opponent, but will have to do it without Andrew Luck under center.

Matt Hasselbeck will be making his second straight start for the Colts, but he isn’t fully healthy either. Hasselbeck was in the ER earlier this week as he suffered from a stomach virus and needed an IV. He did manage to practice fully on Wednesday and, barring a major rally by Luck, will be starting tonight.

The Colts have a number of other players who could be out tonight with injuries as well. Cornerback Vontae Davis (foot), defensive tackle Henry Anderson (foot), and safety Mike Adams (neck) are all listed as questionable.

We broke down the numbers on the Texans to get a better idea of how Houston has fared so far this season. We also talked with the editor of Toro Times to get some inside information on this week’s opponent. You can also check out our game preview in this week’s What to Watch For.
