The Colts come in to tonight's game off a win last week over the Baltimore Ravens and tied atop the the AFC South with the Houston Texans. Both teams are now 3 and 2 on the season. Indianapolis also has a streak going of 9 straight wins when playing on Thursday's. The Colts are led by former 1st round quarterback Andrew Luck who is more than living up to his 1st round status this season. Luck comes in to this week after 5 games having thrown for 1,617 yards. He has also thrown for 14 touchdowns over that span to lead the NFL while also leading the NFL in interceptions throw at 6. The Colts are hoping to keep up their improvement on defense giving up 892 yards in the previous three games (after giving up 819 in just the first 2) leading to their now three game win streak.

The Texas on the other hand are coming off a heartbreaking overtime loss to their cross state rivals the Dallas Cowboys last week. Houston starting running back Adrian Foster comes in to tonight's contest after putting up 157 yards on the ground and two touchdowns last week in Dallas. It also marked the third time in 5 games that Foster has topped the 100 yard mark. The Texans to date are 4 and 20 against the Colts but won their last meeting in November of 2013, breaking a three game losing streak. Texans long time wide out Andre Johnson comes in to this game on what so far has been a down season for him but in the past has had great success against the Colts averaging over 150 yards in their last 3 meetings to go along with five touchdowns.
