The Colts held on to beat the Texans on Thursday Night Football.
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 have long seen their offense strike when the iron is hot and consistently run up the score, but they’ve needed the defense to keep the lead. With some players leaving and others are not living up to the hype, J.J. Watt brings the whole package to a team that is getting better every season.
The NFC blew past the AFC 62-35 in a Pro Bowl that could be the league’s last.
Arian Foster ran for 140 yards and a touchdown, and the Houston Texans used a stifling defensive effort for a 19-13 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday.
