    Ok i said AJ would have a big day against the jags but DAMN. AJ is back to his old self for sure guys and it feels good.

    OK

    Texans 28

    Lions 21

    Foster always plays good during prime time games, so i say Foster runs for 165 yards and 2 TD. AJ gets 114 yards and 1 TD. With OD grabbing the other.

    Gonna be fun stuffing my face while watching my favorite team play on thanksgiving. OF course to to health reasons i dont prefer a repeat of todays gazme.

    Agreed. Savor the win today (ugly as it was, you don't get extra credit for style points in the NFL). Worry about the Lions and Suh's cheap shots tomorrow.

    All I want is a win.

    I don't like the short week after playing almost 5 full quarters and having to travel. It's going to be a tough game for the Texans but I still think they pull it out. I won't predict any score until we see if Graham is a Texans tomorrow or not.

    I actually think we might lose this game.

    ONLY BECAUSE we will be tired after the marathon game we had today.

    It's a Thursday game, and it will be tough on our guys.

    I do think we have the better team, but the layoff after this game will be nice.

    My Prediction?

    Pain!

    On three days rest there's definitely going to be pain. Hopefully we give as much as we receive.

    We could definitely lose this one. Brutal game against Chicago, marathon battle against Jacksoffville, short turnaround flying to Detroit. Especially if Joseph is out. Gonna be tough to guard Calvin.

    Calvin Johnson must be going 'Muhahaha' after seeing what the rookie receiver Blackmon did to us.

    J. Jo being out is very concerning. I think he needs to sit if he is anywhere less than 95% and use the long break to heal up. Texans still win due to pressure on Stafford

    The Texans are playing up to, and down to their competition regularly this year. They usually (eventually) get around to putting a thumping on the bad teams but they've let them hang around a lot this season and seem to be doing it more as the year goes on. The flip side of that is they're hanging tough with the good teams too.

    They're in every game though (except for that Green Bay game, that was a 2012 season aberration if ever there was one.) and I think they can win Thursday. They may not. This was a bad time to play 5 tough quarters against a lousy opponent but they've responded well to wake up calls so maybe this works out for the best.

    He's going to get his. We have to make sure our guys do their part. It'll be a tough game because Stafford and Megatron are a tough match up for anyone.

    I predict I'm gonna eat too much mashed potatoes, and not leave any room for pumpkin pie, and eat it anyway.

    Not going to predict the game, but i am 90% certain if the texans win they will clinch a playoff spot.

    Too early to tell on that one.

    We have to at least wait for Indy to fall to 6 losses.
