Game: Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans

Prediction: Andre Johnson returns to NRG with revenge on his mind and has an explosive game against Kareem Jackson and Johnathan Joseph, whom he already has years of experience of obliterating in practice. Now that he has a quarterback that can actually throw passes that don’t float like pooch punts, expect him to not only have a big game but a big year in terms of scoring. The Colts however, did very little in the offseason to address a defense that got its front teeth kicked in by the Patriots in the AFC Championship game.

Foster will have a ridiculous night against this team, and “Nuke” DeAndre Hopkins matches Andre Johnson’s production blow for blow. Luck will turn over the ball and I forsee a close game where one critical mistake costs the Colts the game. Que in the theme music for “Fat Randy” Bullock’s replacement Nick Novak to take home the win with a critical field goal in an overtime thriller!

Final score: 38-35
