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.
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'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.
