A late divisional battle could see the Indianapolis Colts take the AFC South crown with two games still left to go, but the Houston Texans are fighting for a playoff spot and still need the win badly. Dan Fouts of CBS Sports took the time to talk on the big AFC match-up and what it means to both teams.
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.
The key offensive players for the New York Giants finally showed up, and the G-men rode the stellar efforts of Rashad Jennings, Victor Cruz and Eli Manning in their 30-17 triumph over the Houston Texans. The Giants moved to 1-2 on the season, while the Texans dropped to 2-1.
It’s time for the Giants to look in the mirror and figure out how they need to play. Houston has been able to execute, while coach Tom Coughlin’s team has failed to do so.
Since Pro Bowl guard Chris Snee retired at the start of training camp and high-priced free agent Geoff Schwartz was injured in a preseason game, there have been giant concerns about the New York’s offensive line.
Considering the record contract J.J. Watt just got, Muhammad Wilkerson wouldn’t be wrong to at least wonder when he might get paid.

The Houston Texans have long seen their offense strike when the iron is hot and consistently run up the score, but they’ve needed the defense to keep the lead. With some players leaving and others are not living up to the hype, J.J. Watt brings the whole package to a team that is getting better every season.
The shenanigans were limited. The teams scored plenty of points. Yet the results were familiar — another ho-hum Pro Bowl. Now, the future of the game depends on how Commissioner Roger Goodell sees it.
The Houston Texans defeated the Bengals 19-13 and will face the Patriots in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs.
You can look at the standings and get a pretty good read on the teams that are going to be in the playoffs at the conclusion of the year. But several of those teams still have a lot to prove.
Atlanta is still undefeated, but I’m not totally buying into them. It’s all about the playoffs with this group.
The Giants must put the pressure on Romo and keep mistakes to a minimum if they’re to beat the Cowboys on Sunday.
