Location: Reliant Stadium Houston, TX
Kick-off time: 1:00 pm ET
Key injuries: Rob Morris is out for the second week in a row. This likely means Rocky Boiman gets the start again at SAM. Dallas Clark and Bob Sanders were held out of some practices this past week, but both are fine and both are expected to play.
I have to give a ton of credit to Texans fans for the blogging they'd done leading up to this game. And as I give them credit, I now have to take a giant Craphonso on the national media, in particular ESPN. I've watched a lot of TV this weekend because 1) I'm not feeling well, and 2) I'm bored. And while watching all this TV, all I keep hearing about is the Texans, the Texans, the Texans. "Hey look! It's the Texans. If they win they're, like, good aren't they?" Kind of left out of all this Texans-uphoria is the defending Champs are playing, and that slight has irked me. Like all things ESPN, rather than simply report the news of the game, they are hyping up what they want to happen, kind of like last week. Makes me sick.
That said, here's to a good, clean game with no injuries. Go Colts!
