I think there is just too huge a difference between MS and Luck in being able to create when the play does not work perfectly.
Colts will be able to shut down running game even with all our pro bowlers and then tee off on Matt. Colts just need to shut down AJ and know they won't get hurt by other WR.
Shut down Watt on D and they will move the ball and score. It may not take much offense by the Colts to win this game because I don't see Texans scoring much unless the D has multiple take aways.
I know negative outlook but the memory of last weeks game has not faded yet.
Just my opinion. Hope I am wrong.
Above is post I made before Colts debacle.
I feel exactly the same way this game. Substitute Bengals/Bengals players above. Only this game I feel will be even harder to win because the Bengals have a real defense. I think we will see the true futility in having MS lead this team in the playoffs. Again I hope I am totally wrong.
I bet there is a Bengals fan that said the exact same thing about their team.
All the Texans have to do is stop Aj & Dalton has no where to go with the ball. I think the Texans will pressure Dalton on third down & he'll make mistakes. The Texans are going to shut down our run game & tee off on Dalton.
Shutdown Atkins & they'll be able to move the ball. If our defense doesn't score, the Texans will most likely win.
It's a small world, & the Texans aren't the only ones dealing with issues on their team.
