All WR vs IND
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. The Thursday Night game will feature two NFC South rivals clashing in Houston's NRG Stadium. The Texans are banged up coming into this one - Cecil Shorts (shoulder) is out and Nate Washington (hamstring) is also not practicing this week, so rookie Kevin Mumphery (seven targets for 4/56/0 receiving last week) could get the start opposite DeAndre Hopkins (22! targets for 9/157/0 receiving last week) at wide receiver. In addition to the injury woes, the Texans benched starter Ryan Mallett (12/27 for 150 yards passing, zero TDs and one interception thrown last week) in Atlanta after the team was down 0-42 - backup Brian Hoyer threw three TDs against prevent defense but was not elevated to starter (yet), so Mallett will begin this game under center (whether he finishes there is yet to be seen). Outside Hopkins, who gets his no matter which guy is pitching the football, it's hard to be excited about any of the receivers on this chaotic unit.
The Colts' pass D allowed 30/47 for 266 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions to the Jaguars last week, after coughing up 27/44 for 367 yards passing, two TDs and two interceptions to the Titans two games ago. To date, the Colts average 268.0 net passing yards allowed per game, with six passing scores handed over vs. a mediocre three interceptions and just five sacks generated to date (tied for 28th in the NFL).
This is a good matchup for the Texans, but it remains to be seen if they can take advantage of it.
