Kick-off Time: 1:00pm Eastern

Broadcast: CBSSB Nation Co-Blog: Battle Red Blog

The game billed as "The Biggest Game in Houston Texans History" is, in reality, a big division game for both teams. It is also just simply a great match-up between two good football teams. Injuries for both teams made headlines in the week leading up to the game.

The Texans lost Owen Daniels, their outstanding tight end, is done for the year. Also out for the game is back-up TE James Casey. Looks like Steve Slaton has been benched in favor of Ryan Moats.

For the Colts, we know Bob Sanders, Tyjuan Hagler, and Marlin Jackson are done for 2009. Anthony Gonzalez and Kelvin Hayden are out. Donald Brown is also inactive today even though he practiced most of the week (list of inactives here). Kyle DeVan will start at right guard over Mike Pollak, which is one of the few roster moves of late that has nothing to do with injuries.

This is your open thread for this big AFC South game. Enjoy. Go Colts!
