Frank Reich will be feeling the pressure against the Houston Texans

Yes, that’s exactly what it says. While it’s a sentence that hasn’t been uttered in over two years for Texans fans, the truth is that Reich may just be the newest NFL head coach on the hot seat. Think about this- a team that’s had two separate 10-win teams that went to the playoffs last season could be staring down the barrel of a 1-5 start.

That’s ultimately the same for David Culley, but it’s the first year of his tenure- so it’s not likely he gets fired (Unless a Steve Keim/ Steve Wilks thing happens here). If the game starts to go poorly, will the Colts fans in attendance start to boo their team?

This is the scenario that as a player you really enjoy- going into someone else’s house and letting their own downfall be a source for chaos and frustration. All the Texans have to do to win this game is continue to throw the ball and make sure David Culley has no more head-scratching decision

If the Texans can make this happen, then the avalanche will have already started and it’ll be impossible to stop- just like it was on Monday night. It’s tempting to want the team to not do well to improve draft position, but a divisional win against a team the Texans have rarely beaten would be a nice humble brag at the end of the year.
