Sunday Night Football open thread: Colts vs. Texans

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Join us as we take a look at this week's Sunday Night Football game and open a thread for discussion for this AFC South match up.

At 0-8, the Jaguars won't be contending for the AFC South title this year, but watching a couple of division rivals can give us some insight into how we'll stack up over the course of the next few seasons.

The Indianapolis Colts come to Houston's Reliant Stadium with a 5-2 record and an arrow pointing way, way up. They handed Peyton Manning his first loss, they're the only team in the division without a losing record and Andrew Luck has a 7-2 touchdown to interception ratio over the last four games. Can Luck stay efficient with the loss of Reggie Wayne to a season-ending knee injury?

The Houston Texans are 2-5, and in danger of losing their sixth straight game. Matt Schaub has been benched, their stable of running backs is crumbling and their offense is averaging just 13.0 points per game over the last four weeks... but hey, Tampa Bay proved that anything is (almost) possible with a near-win over Seattle earlier today.

This game is huge for both teams -- if the Colts can win, they'll have taken another step towards AFC South dominance... if the Texans win, they'll sit no more than two games out of the division lead, and hold a half-game lead over the Colts in the divisional record tiebreaker.
