State of the Texans:
It may not seem like a big deal to some, but the Houston Texans are scheduled to have the roof open on Sunday night against the Indianapolis Colts.
Roof Forecast for Sunday: 56-70 degrees, no rain. If conditions remain the same, Texans will play with open roof. pic.twitter.com/Isc1tlDYIZ

As always, the final decision will be made by team executives two hours prior to kickoff. — Houston Texans (@HoustonTexans) November 1, 2013
This is the first time the roof has been open since Week 8 (October 30th) of the 2011 season against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Texans won that game 24 to 14 and was also a “Battle Red” day during that game. The Texans have played with the roof open 31 times since 2002, and this will only the 4th time since the start of the 2010 season.
Even Houston Texans defensive end Jared Crick had something to say about the news.
Heard we might pop the top sunday night. Bout time

The always popular running back talk continues in Houston. The Texans are now practicing five players at the position, with Ben Tate and Arian Foster being the most notable participants in yesterday’s practice.
In an update from Tania Ganguli of ESPN, Texans coach Gary Kubiak is pleased with the progress of his backfield tandem, leading us to believe that both will suit up Sunday...

The Houston Texans take on division rival Indianapolis on Sunday night, and will look to put an end to a five-game losing streak that has drastically altered their Super Bowl aspirations. The running back corps is the most afflicted unit on the team, with Arian Foster and Ben Tate both dealing with injuries (Tate has four cracked ribs, Foster is dealing with a sore hamstring).
Texans running back Ben Tate (fractured ribs) will play on Sunday night against the Colts according to coach Gary Kubiak.Fantasy Spin:The other question for Tate owners, of course, is whether Arian Foster will play and the coach said Foster will be a game-time decision. Foster's designation determines Tate's ultimate fantasy value.
Indianapolis Colts (5-2) at Houston Texans (2-5)
You could definitely still argue the Texans are underrated and are better than their record. They are moving the chains at a 75% rate, as opposed to 72% for their opponents. That differential is 12th in the NFL. They have been killed by turnovers (-11), an inability to recover fumbles (37.5%), and a ridiculous amount of return touchdowns...

Indianapolis is coming off of a bye week to face a Houston team that is, for a lack of better terms, is a complete dumpster fire right now. Indy has beaten some top competition this year. They have also lost to some lesser teams. Here’s three things the Colts need to do in order to pull out a win on their third straight prime time game1.Build Confidence in a Third WR OptionThe...
(Eds: With AP Photos.) By CLIFF BRUNT Associated Press The Colts have a major challenge on Sunday night: Keeping the Texans and defensive end J.J. Watt away from franchise quarterback Andrew Luck.
Watt, the AP Defensive Player of the Year in 2012, sacked Luck three times in Houston's win over the Colts last December. In two games against the Texans last season, Luck was sacked...
Case Keenum presents the Texans with a much more mobile quarterback than the recently benched Matt Schaub.
But Indianapolis’ defense is led by 11-year veteran Robert Mathis, and his league-leading 11.5 sacks have already drawn the attention of the Texans’ offense.
“Very much (worried),” coach Gary Kubiak said Thursday at Reliant Stadium. “He’s playing everywhere. If...

The 2013 Houston Texans season isn’t dead yet, but it’s on life support and the plug will be pulled if they lose to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. A loss to Indianapolis would put the Texans four games behind the Colts, five with the tiebreaker factored in, with just eight games remaining. They wouldn’t be mathematically eliminated, but realistically their playoff chances...
