The Colts went up 24-0 in the first quarter this Week 6 Thursday Night Football matchup. Could’ve been another blowout, but the Texans made of game of it.
Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts had a great first quarter and did just enough the rest of the way to hold off the Houston Texans 33-28 on Thursday night.
Colts-Texans could come down to a last-second field goal, and it appears to be an excellent week to play perhaps the greatest placekicker in NFL history in the Colts’ Adam Vinatieri.
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.

Hobbled by injuries, the Indianapolis Colts hope (wide receiver) Hakeem Nicks can contribute with the type of production that catapulted the New York Giants to a Super Bowl championship in 2012.
Geno Smith hasn’t officially been named the Jets’ starting quarterback for Week 1, although we all know it’s his job to lose. Nothing changed on Thursday night.
Geno Smith was solid. Michael Vick showed he was still the fastest guy on the field. Both players led scoring drives. Overall it was a good — but not overwhelming — showing on Thursday night.
Michael Vick led the New York Jets on a touchdown drive, capped by fellow newcomer Chris Johnson’s 1-yard scoring run, in a 13-10 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night in the preseason opener for both teams.
Preseason games don’t matter? Don’t tell that to Jets quarterback Geno Smith, because his career may depend on them.
Here is a list of five players who will have a bounce back season.
Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne has earned a reputation for his flashy training camp arrivals and this year was no different. In keeping with tradition, Wayne stepped up his training camp arrival game.
