Analysis: Thursday night games, other than the Giants visit to Washington two weeks ago, have been a home town party. The Colts will be missing both of their starting guards, which will give Houston’s defense an advantage in slowing down Andrew Luck. Indianapolis’ defense has been mediocre at best, which should allow Arian Foster to carry the Texans to victory. An interesting side note, Robert Irsay’s six game ban ends after tonight’s game, allowing the very active tweeter back on Twitter. His tweets have been rather amusing and their resumption will add some flavor to an already colorful season.

Straight pick: Texans
Spread Pick: Texans + 2.5
OU Pick: Over 46.5
