    This game spooks me the most when compared to our remaining schedule. Division games can always be tough no matter how good or bad the opponent. The biggest reason I feel that we will still finish on top this Sunday is because our team has fought from 0-3 and seems to be more focused and disciplined. We have had opportunities to drop close games or fall into "traps." We didn't. Old Texans teams would have lost. This isn't the letterman jacket team from several years ago. We are balanced and on a mission.

    Frank Reich is looking for revenge. I hope the Texans send Luck and Reich home to Indianapolis with a loss.

    He doesn’t get to have revenge on a Houston team after 35-3

    Going for 10 in the wind. Gonna be a cold one out in the blue lot. Sunday can't get here soon enough.
    Luck is gonna get his (with a couple of sacks and a fumble). TY always gets his (with no defender in camera view).
    But we still got this. Time for 4 to spread it around and have one of his signature games.
    With this win comes the national media blowing smoke up our arse.
    Cause back then they didn't want me, now I'm hot..........

    Let me guess, you're sitting on the john at Buc-ee's and got mixed up and posted this instead of writing it on the wall?

    What is that "something?"

    I hate to sound like a negative nancy - and believe me, I'm enjoying the hell out of 9-3 - hell I even cited the 1993 Oilers when we the team was 0-3 - nevertheless, the 2018 Texans have yet to put together a full 4 quarters thus far.

    I predict that the Texans will have to take another big step on Sunday to win this one.

    D'onta Foreman has been activated from the pup list and added to the 53 man active roster. That gives Watson another dangerous weapon to use in the final 4 games and going into the playoffs.
    Texans will take this game to continue their quest. If Foreman plays any significant time in this game the Texans will take it...

    Colts 17
    If Foreman is held out of this game, the Texans still win, but much closer...

    At this point, Foreman is a totally unknown quantity, who has more chance being meh than marvelous. I definitely hope he proves me wrong.

    Well, I'll tell you this. He brings a whole new dimension to the offense. He's faster and stronger then Blue. He's a threat to run it through any gap and produce more yards due to his strength then Blue is. He can power through a line backer or defensive back for extra yards on a carry. He has better vision then Blue. He's good out of the backfield as a pass catcher so he'll spread defenses out even further laterally which will open things up even further for the offense. He'll at least be the #2 back within the next 2 to 3 weeks because of those things. The Texans just became more dangerous because of him. We saw a sample size of his abilities last year in what he can do. He has been to every running back and team meeting while he was out, so he knows the offense very well and that means he won't have to come back trying to figure things out. That's a plus. I think the Texans just got better with him back.

    I don't think Foreman is activated unless he showed something at practice. Besides, after Miller and Blue, what else do the Texans have at RB?

    Hey, I hope all you said is still true, but all that was before the injury—an injury that historically drastically changes performance for RBs. The deck is stacked against him I'm afraid.

    We shall see shortly. I hope he does well. It will make the offense that much more dangerous and also, on 3rd and short situations, the offense will have a much better chance if converting.

    Besides all that, an 85 or 90% Foreman is still better then a 100% Blue. And I think Foreman is probably closer to 95% or better. He just needs to play, take some hits, get his legs back under him and gain some confidence and he'll be just fine.

    Don't get me wrong, I was glad to see he was activated and was hoping to see him get to play this year. I am hoping he can be an impactful player and not saying it can't happen, but I have no expectation it will based on the injury he is coming back from. I am hoping he proves me wrong.
