Default Texans can make statement with win over Colts

Having made the playoffs in eight consecutive seasons, the Indianapolis Colts are a model franchise for other teams to follow. The Houston Texans feel they are on that level, at least offensively. The top two offenses from a season ago get together this Sunday at Reliant Stadium, as the Colts begin defense of their AFC championship against a Texans club that will carry a four-game winning streak dating back to last year into this matchup.
Led by quarterback Peyton Manning, who captured his fourth MVP award last year, the Colts ripped through the regular season in 2009, winning their first 14 games before dropping a pair of meaningless contests heading into the playoffs. They then won their first two postseason games under first-year head coach Jim Caldwell, knocking off the Baltimore Ravens and New York Jets before falling to the New Orleans Saints in Super Bowl XLIV.
Indianapolis led the title game heading into halftime, but was outscored by New Orleans 25-7 in the second half to fall 31-17. The Colts have been itching to get back on the field ever since.
Indy opens up its season with three of its first four games on the road and draws a potentially tough Week 1 matchup in the Texans, who have their eyes set on knocking off a Colts team that has finished first in the AFC South in six of the past seven seasons.

Default Re: Texans can make statement with win over Colts

Prove these idiots wrong. They don't even address that the Colts will NOT be in rhythm coming off a horrible preseason. They are at their weakest point on the road, game 1, against a tough Texans team.........GMAMFB:

OVERALL ANALYSIS:
In what could be the highest-scoring game in Week 1, this matchup could instead come down to which defense is able to push back the hardest. That edge goes to the Colts, who have more experience over a Texans club that will really miss Cushing. While Houston is trying to take the next step forward as a franchise, Indianapolis is all business and knows what is at stake, even in the opening week. Manning won't let his team get off to a slow start. Ultimately, the Colts' seasoning will win out over the Texans' up-and-coming talent. Houston's lone franchise win over Indianapolis did come at Reliant Stadium, but win No. 2 won't go down this Sunday.Sports Network Predicted Outcome: Colts 31, Texans 24

I think it comes down to speed, and this is the fastest Texans team I've seen yet.

How long will Peyton's giant, skyscraper-esque forehead be enough height to keep his Colts team over the Texans' rising water? It was barely huge enough to eek out wins last year, here AND there. I think the Texans are going to come out and destroy Peyton's rythym, he's going to be running for his life while he's on the field and when the Texans' O steps up they've got to average 4 yards per carry. They'll get the aerial attack going, that's never been the problem. The OL and "Bananas" Foster need to bring the pain. Go Bananas. Go Bananas Go!
