The Indianapolis Colts are favored to beat the Texans in Houston Thursday night. But John Madden told the KCBS Radio morning crew he thinks the Colts are starting the game at a disadvantage.
Colts-Texans could come down to a last-second field goal, and it appears to be an excellent week to play perhaps the greatest placekicker in NFL history in the Colts’ Adam Vinatieri.
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.
The Houston Texans are looking better in 2014 and the Indianapolis Colts have turned things around after a slow start to the year. Former NFL quarterback and CBS analyst Chris Simms took time to talk to me about the upcoming AFC South battle on Thursday Night Football, and he had some great things to say.
The Oakland Raiders defense isn’t very good even when healthy, but with multiple injuries to key players on the defensive side of the ball, the Silver & Black may be in for a long day on Sunday in New England.
The Oakland Raiders are 0-2 with no relief in sight, as they travel to New England to take on the Patriots in Week Three. That’s not the remedy for what ails the Silver & Black, of course, so it could be an ugly week for the team. Be prepared, Oakland fans, for a disastrous road trip.
After watching his team be throttled at home by a Texans club that managed just two wins all of last year, veteran Raiders safety Charles Woodson said what much of Raider Nation was thinking.
It was an ugly, ugly day for the Oakland Raiders in their 2014 home opener, as the offense couldn’t get anything going until late, and the defense did a Swiss cheese impression from the opening whistle.
Two weak spots from Week One—the running game and the defense—could struggle again in Week Two if Maurice Jones-Drew and Nick Roach can’t get healthy in time to face the Houston Texans at the Coliseum on Sunday.
The Raiders will host the Houston Texans for a sold-out game at the Coliseum on Sunday and Coach Madden said rookie quarterback Derek Carr will face some challenges.
