4: Four forced turnovers

Along with pressuring Colts quarterback Carson Wentz, and getting him off his spot, comes interceptions on bad throws. The Houston Texans time-and-time again are flying to the ball every week. The only problem is they have been dropping easy interceptions week after week.

This is the week that changes because players like Justin Reid, Desmond King II, and Lonnie Johnson Jr. are be players to watch around the ball, along with linebacker Kamu Gruiger-Hill as they are players that constantly have their hands on the ball.

Bold Prediction:

The Houston Texans will force a total of four turnovers in this Week 6 game against the Colts, with two interceptions and two forced fumbles. This type of performance can get this defense back on track with their takeaways per game goal. As long as Wentz is pressured by the defensive front the opportunities for these turnovers will present themselves.

3: Nico Collins goes off in his return

With Nico Collins coming off of injured reserve, and most likely returning against the Colts, a monster game may be in store for the rookie wide receiver. Before getting injured Collins started to show his ability and promise as a solid option for Texans quarterbacks.

One can look at the game Texans wide receiver Chris Moore had last week against New England as a measuring stick for what to expect from Collins in his return.

Both players are built with relatively the same look for Mills to target Collins the way he did Moore last week against the defense of the Patriots.  Collins can not only take the top off the defense, he is also a reliable target over the middle for Mills giving the possibility for more targets through the game. His return will improve the Texans offense immediately.

Bold Prediction:

Nico Collins finishes the game with eight receptions for 175 yards and two touchdowns against the Indianapolis defense.
