Look for the Saints to expose the Colts inner D-line.
Running up the middle until somebody stops them.
Also look for Brees to dump off to the 2nd and third options.
ie; 5 to 10 yard passes up field...taking advantage of the inexperienced linebackers.
Screens set ups will be be used early to try and open up for the long pass.

Why couldn't the Texans just stay bad?:o) Why did they have to go suddenly be 2-0 for the Colts 3rd game @ Houston? Not that you can ever take a fellow AFC South opponent lightly -- but this game has that feel of either a Colts loss or a Colts blowout around mid-third quarter. Hoping for the latter.

Homer? No, your scouting report is not entirely wrong but damn near. I will say this, I have'nt seen the Colts play this year, but if the defense is an upgrade from last year than that means the Texans probablly won't drop 30+ on you. while I won't call the Texans a lock for the win I will say this the pre-season games final score against Dallas was misleading; the two regular season games the Texans have already played, the scores are misleading. Fasten your seatbelts Colts your about to run into a Texans team this Sunday that will prove, despite the loss of Andre "the freak" Jonhnson (whom we didn't even need to beat you last year) this will be a special year. by the way congrats on your run last year....baaaad aaaass!!!! for T. Dungy that should be your 2nd ring (T.B.) Good Luck Colts

At this point, I wish the Texan's had not won last December. Unfortunately, that gives the Colts somewhat of a reason to win this game. Otherwise, I think the Colts would be overlooking this game - just what the Texans need.

This city is looking for 3-0. I don't think we will get it this Sunday, but don't be surprised if you barely escape out of Reliant stadium with a narrow win....

At least you are smart enough to know that you are going to lose.

It's good for the AFC that the Texans have improved.

I think that the Colts will prevail. We just have too many weapons on offense, and the defense has definitely improved from last year.

Last year, by the time the second game against the Texans, we had already won 11 games. During that matchup, Bob Sanders and Dallas Clark watched from the sidelines.

I'm sorry, but was I mistaken when I saw that Houston was 2-0? Are they really that good....or have they just played 2 terrible teams like Kansas City and Carolina? Even in Houston, the Colts emerge victorious. The Texans are an improving team, but still have a couple of years before they can contend against a very tough AFC. Mario Williams is the real deal and will be a huge help to Houston in years to come. One thing I've learned from being a Colts fan is that "Patience IS a virtue". Your time will come in Houston.

The Colts defense is much better than anyone is giving them credit for right now. I think mosty because people are gunshy of giveing them the credit they are due, because of the horrid play in the past. Marlin Jackson is tied for 2nd in the NFL in tackles, and with him and Kelvin Hayden on the field, it's almost like haveing three Bob Sanders out there! I loved Cato June, but Freddie Keiaho is much better, and when Rob Morris gets healthy he is a big upgrade over Rocky Boiman. This team doesn't even resemble the holey defense of our past! These guys love to hit! They love being more physical than the other team! This defense is what champions are made of, and the reason that we will have a real chance at winning future Super Bowls!
Colts all the way
