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.
RG3 and the Washington Redskins play in Houston on Sunday, an opener matching two teams looking to bounce back from disappointing seasons with first-time NFL coaches. Jay Gruden takes over for Washington and Bill O’Brien for the Texans.
The Houston Texans have long seen their offense strike when the iron is hot and consistently run up the score, but they’ve needed the defense to keep the lead. With some players leaving and others are not living up to the hype, J.J. Watt brings the whole package to a team that is getting better every season.
There’s always a huge debate over what should happen with the Skins draft picks. This year, however, what should happen and what will happen seem to be different things. More-so than years past, it seems necessary for the Redskins to trade down.
