Before the season, we would have thought that this was going to be one of the top games of the season. Now, the Texans are looking to stay away from the basement and the Colts are looking to be on top of the league. The Colts will be without Reggie Wayne for the rest of the season. Who will step up on the roster to take his production. The Texans will have Case Keenum under center and he will be looking for that first win.

Colts Player to Watch: T.Y. Hilton
With Reggie Wayne gone, someone will have to step up and make plays. Darrius Heyward Bey and T.Y. Hilton are the top options for Andrew Luck on the outside now and Hilton seems to be the best bet for the team. Heyward Bey is just too inconsistent to be the start for the team on offense. Look for Luck to get the ball to Hilton down the field and in other situations he would be looking for Wayne.
Texans Player to Watch: Case Keenum
Case Keenum looked poise against the Kansas City Chiefs in his first start of his career. He gets another opportunity to prove that he can be a starting quarterback in this league. The Colts have a good defense though, so it won’t be a walk in the park for him. It will be interesting to see how he does this week. Hopefully he has some of his running backs available for him.
The Texans are just a mess of a team right now. The running backs keep going down with injuries and they have a quarterback with no experience leading the troops. The Colts are hot, but they will be without one of their top weapons. How will they respond with Reggie Wayne out of the game. I think they will be fine this time around.
Colts 17, Texans 13
