Houston Texans 4-2 - Indianapolis Colts 4-2
What To Watch For:
Monday Night Football plays host to a showdown between two AFC South deadlocks - the Indianapolis Colts and the Houston Texans.
In Week 1, this game was far from a blockbuster affair. The Colts fell in disappointing fashion, and although quarterback Peyton Manning had a big day, Indianapolis found themselves 0-1 to start the season.
But boy, how things have changed.
Unfortunately, the Colts and Texans haven't managed to grasp the division, and as a result the Titans have slipped into the top spot.
This Monday Night marks the first ever time the Texans may sweep the Indianapolis Colts. Even though any person in their right mind wouldn't count Peyton Manning out, a loss may be the immediate outcome, seeing as though the Colts are without Austin Collie, Joseph Addai and many other big name players this year.
As for Houston, this past week has been all about focus. Head coach Gary Kubiak has implemented many team meetings, and now it has been announced that Brian Cushing will replace injured DeMeco Ryans at the middle linebacker spot.
It may not be the biggest game of the week, but it is by far the most meaningful. You get the feeling that whoever loses may be out of the AFC South picture, and whoever wins, could just as easily take home the title in eight weeks time.
Indianapolis has home field advantage though, and has we've seen in past weeks, home field plus a need for revenge, normally equals a win for the boys in blue and white.
