As we start Week 16 of the NFL season, we now get the final Thursday night game of the regular season with the Houston Texans visiting the Indianapolis Colts. This really should not be much of a game with the high powered rushing attack of the Houston Texans likely to run over the porous run defense of the Indianapolis Colts this evening.
Yes, the Colts logged their first win of the season last weekend while the Texans lost a home game to the upstart Carolina Panthers, but I fully expect the Texans to come out tonight with at least 40 running plays in the offensive game plan, controlling the clock and dominating this contest.
Texans rookie QB T.J. Yates suffered his worst start of the season against the Carolina Panthers last week, but Yates should be able to be a game manager tonight against the Colts. Look for the Texans to control the ball tonight and come away with their 11th win of the regular season.
The Vegas Line has installed the Texans as the favorites, giving seven points with the over/under line set at 40.5. Take the Texans, lay the points and the under. Houston Texans win 23-10.
