Could this be it-the first competitive Thursday night game of the 2014 NFL season? The Colts visit Houston as just a three-point favorite, and both teams are 3-2, so at the risk of being the Mary Swanson to your Lloyd Christmas, I’m saying there’s a chance.

Five Things: Buccaneers Vs. Falcons Thursday Night Roundup

56-14. You just don’t see scores like that in the NFL very often. Tampa Bay didn’t look like an NFL team last night, not scoring until the fourth quarter. For Atlanta, this was exactly the performance it needed.
