    You may question why the Colts are 1 point favorites in this game, but the Colts are may favorite play on Sunday. Simply stated - Houston is overrated, even in their win over the Chiefs, Watson hasn't looked great recently, and the Texans also picked up a couple of key injuries. Indianapolis on the other hand is finally starting to get healthy, with Leonard and Geathers both coming back after multi-game absences. That's huge for the Colts defense and Watson will also be without his starting right tackle for this one. I like Indy at home to give the Texans a reality check.

    My Pick: Indianapolis -1

        • Houston's Defense is hard to put your finger on but looking closer at the numbers, they're sneaky good. Indy on the otherhand is believe it or not, 28th in Defensive DVOA this season at 10.9%. They'll have their hands full with the top WR unit in the league and a Deshun Watson that is blossoming as he gets more aquainted with a manageable if not, talented Offensive line that's giving him time.

          My Pick: Houston & Under 47.5

          • Texans DB Bradley Roby downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Colts.
            ANALYSIS
            Roby will not travel with the team to Indianapolis. Expect Lonnie Johnson to play an increased role in Houston's secondary as long as Roby is unable to go. On a positive note for the Texans' defense, Jonathan Joseph (hamstring) is expected to suit up Week 7, per Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

                Houston Texans
                (56% consensus). With Andrew Luck's surprising retirement on the eve of the regular season, the debate over the best quarterback in the AFC South was settled and Houston's Deshaun Watson became the obvious choice. Watson will try to guide the Houston Texans to a third consecutive win when they visit the Luck-less Indianapolis Colts on Sunday... http://bit.ly/2B6GOva

                Fansided: Colts vs. Texans: Week 7 weather update

                The Colts have a retractable roof and window in their stadium, though most people wouldn't know it since both are rarely open. Most of the time the Colts play indoors at home without any outside weather coming in. That won't be the case tomorrow when they face Houston.

                Jim Irsay tweeted out that the roof and the window will be open for the game tomorrow. This is great because the weather is supposed to be superb. At kickoff, it's supposed to be about 66 degrees and mostly sunny. Excellent weather to play football in.

                Because the weather is supposed to be picture perfect, this won't have too much effect on the game.

Flip the CLOSED signs to OPEN at the vacant Blockbusters and K-Marts across the country, to make room for transient employees huffing fog machines and peddling cheap fabric and novelty plastic to transfigure goblins into nurses and blue aliens from a movie that came out ten years ago. Pump me full of cinnamon and pumpkin coffee. Kiss my neck. Take me to that exotic place, the Wegman's.

                Stampede Blue: Colts vs Texans Week 7: Game Time, TV Schedule, Radio Info, and More

                The Colts come out of their week 6 bye not quite as healthy as we might have hoped, but facing a season-impacting match-up with the Texans all the same. They'll be without several key pieces on defense, and they're up against a Texans offense that has been firing on all cylinders in recent weeks.

                Frank Reich said this week that every game plan is unique to the opponent, and so it will be interesting to see how the Colts attack this Texans team. The top two cornerbacks for the Texans are both listed as questionable and have been dealing with hamstring issues that could make an aerial attack a favorable option for the Colts.

                Indianapolis Star: Colts injury report: Secondary depleted ahead of critical game vs. Texans

                INDIANAPOLIS -- For the second straight game, the Indianapolis Colts will face off against one of the league's premier passing attacks without the benefit of a healthy secondary.

                Two weeks after his short-handed defense smothered the Kansas City Chiefs, Colts coach Frank Reich announced Friday afternoon that a depleted secondary will now be called upon to slow down MVP candidate Deshaun Watson and the top-10 passing offense of the Houston Texans. The Colts, Reich confirmed, will be without starting nickel cornerback Kenny Moore (knee) and perhaps two other starters.

                Moore missed the entire week of practice nursing a knee injury he suffered during the Chiefs game.

                Fansided: Colts injury report: Several out against Texans

                Coming off a bye week, It was hoped that the Colts would be a much healthier team. While some of the players that had missed games prior to the bye week are back, they are still without several players for this crucial game against the Texans.

                Kenny Moore will be out for sure. He is missing the game with a knee injury. Pierre Desir is going to be a game-time decision with a hamstring injury, and Malik Hooker is still doubtful. The Colts could be with out 75% of their secondary for the second straight week.

                The Colts get to stay at home after the bye week, as they play the Texans in a battle for first place. Houston is coming in red hot, especially on offense. The Colts are coming in high on confidence as well, but still a little banged up. How will it all shake out?

                First off, this game should be close the entire way. Neither team has really shown the ability to be a truly dominant team this season. Both have shown flashes of greatness, but have mostly played inconsistently. That's why this game should be close throughout.

                Deshaun Watson has been playing some really good football early this year.

There is little to be impressed with over last week's game however. The Chiefs were allowed, we presume by flag-happy referees who hate the Motherland and probably stomp on the teddy bears of children for their own sick amusement, to score 24 points against vaunted Texans defense; while our offense, the mighty juggernaut which inspires equal parts horror, dread, and awe in our enemies, only scored a paltry 31 points.

                Stampede Blue: Colts Thursday Injury Report: Hooker returns as limited participant, Houston DNP with calf injury

                In Wednesday's injury report, we saw the defense, and most notably the Indianapolis Colts' secondary, dominating the list of those who did not participate. Pierre Desir, Kenny Moore, and Malik Hooker were all Wednesday casualties, if you will, with a few others from the defense limited as well.

                Parris Campbell was the only offensive player who failed to make it on the field which is good for the Colts heading into their Week 7 matchup with the Houston Texans. Right now, with the Colts adding a couple pieces up front in the last week or so, it may actually be a sign that Tyquan Lewis may be on the shelf a bit longer.

                Fansided: Colts run game will face a test vs. Texans

                The Colts have become a run-first team this season. Marlon Mack has been the backbone of this team all season long. The Colts as a team are the fourth best rushing offense, averaging 142 yards a game. They've done well so far in the running game. But they haven't faced a defense this good.

                Houston has the 8th best run defense in the league so far, only allowing 88 yards a game. They have done a good job plugging up the middle on opposing teams. They will have to do the same on Sunday if they want to stop Mack.

                Stampede Blue: Bold Predictions for Colts vs Texans Week 7

                The past two weeks have been huge for the Colts. They ground out a tough road win against the Chiefs and then had a chance to get their bodies right over the bye week. Now they will host the Houston Texans in a huge divisional match-up that will almost certainly have playoff implications for two teams that are yet again on a collision course. Ahead of that match-up, let's take a look at these teams and make some bold predictions for Sunday's game.

                This first prediction might be a bit too bold.
