Sundays starts off with a rivalry game in a division that is up for grabs. These two team are looking for their first win of the season with their rookies quarterbacks. The Colts are coming off a loss to division rival Jacksonville Jaguars while the Texans took a loss to the Baltimore Ravens. The Texans get home field advantage in this one and they’re going to need all they can get to get past the Colts. Which team will come out on top in this divisional matchup?
Main Storylines to Watch
Which quarterback will step up? Anthony Richardson was a stud. Richardson displayed his passing and rushing ability in the last one against Jacksonville. The next step for Richardson would be to work on his ability to not get hit in and out of the pocket. As long as he can do that, we expect for Richardson to continuously shine. CJ Stroud developed his passing game and progressively got better with his reads throughout the last game. His next step would be to get the ball into the endzone and he will need some help for that to happen, but if Stroud is able to get that done, we expect his value to shoot up.
Which wide receiver will emerge out of Houston? We saw Robert Woods and Nico Collins emerge as the top target getters in this offense, but with John Metchie III, Dalton Shultz, and Tank Dell still waiting their turn, there is no true top wide receiver for this team. It can go either way for the Texans and with this team’s willingness to throw, this could be a destination for WR1/TE1 value for one of these guys.
Will Anthony Richardson be RB1 in Indianapolis? Anthony Richardson might end up being the QB1 and the RB1 in Indianapolis if this trend continues. Richardson proved that he is willing to scramble and run when his team needs it the most and with a team that needs all they can get, we might see a season that reminds me a lot of a Lamar Jackson season.
