Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans: Week 6 Where to Watch

The Indianapolis Colts head to the southwest to face the Houston Texans on Sunday Night Football. First place in the AFC South is on the line between the two rivals.

The Colts have a shot to take the driver’s seat in the AFC South despite a slow 2-3 start to the season. The Texans have had their own struggles this year but currently sit at 3-2, and own first place as of now.

We’ve spent the week getting you ready for Sunday’s game. We spoke with the editor of Toro Times to get his views on the Texans. And you can check out our answers to his questions here.

Injury updates have the Colts secondary facing issues once again.

GM Ryan Grigson said some things about the construction of the roster versus some of the salaries they’ve handed out. While Andrew Luck‘s contract does hamper things, it doesn’t excuse three years of bad drafting and team construction by Grigson. He was also the subject of a MMQB piece on scouting, it illuminated some of the issues that have led to a poor roster .

Andrew Luck and his release time was a subject of discussion as well, with the balance between protection and what Luck can do to help his line out at the heart of the debate.
