Thursday Night Football Open Thread - Colts vs. Texans

Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

Tonight, the Indianapolis Colts take on the Houston Texans on Thursday Night Football to kick off Week 5 in the NFL.

The Colts just barely escaped with an overtime victory this past Sunday in a game in which Andrew Luck had to sit out due to injury. It looks like Matt Hasselbeck is getting his second straight start tonight, and if Indianapolis had to pick any two-game stretch during the year to start their backup, they've at least made out like a bandit in that regard. The Texans aren't clicking right now, and the quarterback turmoil over the first four weeks has contributed to that. With Arian Foster ready to take on a bigger role, the Texans should be able to piece together enough to out-score a Hasselbeck-led Colts. Texans 24, Colts 16
