Indianapolis vs Houston game preview
Why Indianapolis wins
Do the Texans have the linebackers to deal with Jonathan Taylor and a run game that is about to be overturned?
Indianapolis’ offensive line is still good, the offense has improved its quarterback — yes, it has — with Matt Ryan, and 28 will once again be the centerpiece of the clock-managing offense.
Run with Taylor, let Ryan hit the ball on third down, rely on a good defense to take the ball away to force a whole bunch of Tex mistakes.

Why Houston wins
Houston has quietly impressive skill sets.
Receivers need improvement, but Davis Mills isn’t bad if he gets time – in fact, he’s good, and Minnesota screamed by taking Kellen Mond – and now it looks like Damion Pierce could be a solid, if not completely, back. – Sad line.
If the O can consistently do anything against the Colt D, the pass rush should be able to get to Ryan. Indianapolis has a Taylor, but it’s nothing special to receive a corpse.

What is going to happen.
Houston will be tricky.
Forget what happened at Illinois – Lovie Smith is a pro coach, and he’s going to improve the defense. The offense resurfaces, and it all boils down to a 64-yard Jonathan Taylor touchdown run late in the third quarter.
