The Texans are going to be a run-happy team that takes advantage of short passing and play-action. There's no reason why wind and snow will be a problem for that kind of play.
Don't know if you were talking to me, but I agree. I wasn't saying the texans would have problems with the cold. Though indy has had quite a TE manning the end of the line for quite some time. But you are right, its about quickness and route running with Indy. I wouldn't mind if it was raining cats and dogs sat and for one reason or another they weren't able to get the roof closed when indy came to town. Better yet.. maybe the sprinklers will magically come on for 2 days straight before the indy game.
