Week 12: at Houston Texans

All QB vs HOU

FBG says: Great matchup. Jacoby Brissett wasn't spectacular in his return from injury against the Jaguars last week, but he got the job done and showed minimal signs of limitation as he should be good to go for this week's Thursday game. Brissett had his best game of the season in Week 7 against the Texans, passing for 326 yards and four touchdowns as he spread the ball all over the field. That game marked a breakout for receiver Zach Pascal, who had over 100 yards and two touchdowns. Pascal has been up and down since then, but for the most part, he has been disappointing with minimal production despite the absence of T.Y. Hilton. With Hilton likely out again this week and Parris Campbell also potentially sidelined, it will be up to Pascal and these tight ends to carry the load. Eric Ebron has been the top tight end for the Colts in the past two games, but he has had unreliable production with low volume all season and has been battling both an illness and ankle injury since last week--making his status worth monitoring coming into Thursday. Given the injury to Marlon Mack, it could be conceivable to see a slight uptick in playing time and volume for Nyhiem Hines, who has remained consistently involved in the passing offense this season. Houston's defense had a very rough outing last week as Lamar Jackson basically had his way with them, passing for four touchdowns in just about three quarters of play. This defense has given up three or more passing touchdowns in five of their last six games, with the only decent game coming against a completely inept Jacksonville passing offense that still put up over 300 yards on them. They rank near the bottom of the league in almost every metric against the pass, and their lack of talent in the secondary reinforces just how exploitable this unit can and will continue to be. The only shining light is the possible return of cornerback Bradley Roby, who has been sidelined since suffering a hamstring injury in Week 6. Roby himself is not an elite player by any means though, so even his return wouldn't be enough to save this secondary that should afford every bit of an advantage to each Colts receiver and tight end. The Texans were noticeably more successful when blitzing against the Colts in their last meeting, so look for some pressure to be dialed up as this Houston front tries to crack through a very strong Colts offensive line and force Brissett to get the ball out quickly. However, Houston's pass rush has been a shell of what it was with J.J. Watt in the lineup, and the Colts still hold the clear advantage in the trenches though with their elite offensive line.
