Thursday Night Football Breakdown: Indianapolis Colts At Houston Texans

Could this be it-the first competitive Thursday night game of the 2014 NFL season? The Colts visit Houston as just a three-point favorite, and both teams are 3-2, so at the risk of being the Mary Swanson to your Lloyd Christmas, I’m saying there’s a chance.

Raiders Defense Has To Be Better In Week 2 If Oakland Wants A Win

The Oakland Raiders gave up 402 yards in their opener against the New York Jets on the road, even though they gave up just 19 points. Some of that was due to the Jets QB struggling to hold on to the ball, of course, but the Silver & Black defense will need to be a lot tougher at home in Week Two for the Raiders to emerge victorious against an efficient Houston Texans offense.
