Houston Texans Ready for Thursday Night Showdown Against Indianapolis Colts
Both the Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts are working off of short weeks in preparation for Thursday night's game in Houston.
Each team has a record of 3-2 and is tied for first place in the AFC South. A win for the Texans legitimatizes their 2014 season and puts them on the path towards a playoff berth.
The game will be played in Houston and Texans DE J.J. Watt told NFL.com he wants the fans to be loud. "We want our fans to be excited and jacked up in [NRG] Stadium. We create a great atmosphere at home. So, we're excited to be playing at home."
Meanwhile, the Colts know they have to know where Watt is on the field at all times.
“He’s a freak. He’s big, he’s fast, he makes plays,” Colts QB Andrew Luck said in a conference call for NFL media on Tuesday. “Obviously, he made one heck of an interception return for touchdown (against Buffalo). He does a lot of things very, very well. But at the same time, I think we have a bunch of good players up front that are up for the challenge and ready to against him."
Colts at Texans kicks off at 7:30p and can be seen on KLBK (CBS) and the NFL Network.
