Texans vs. Colts: 5 Bold Predictions for Week 6
2: Davis Mills continues to impress
After a disastrous performance in Buffalo, the ability to learn from his mistakes and improve for Davis Mills was on full display against New England. Mills’ performance was so good it made history in multiple different ways.
Following the best performance ever by a rookie quarterback against a Bill Belichick coached Patriots team, look for Mills to continue his improvement during his rookie season. With comments earlier the week by Houston Texans head coach David Culley saying that Tyrod Taylor will be the starting quarterback upon his return, one should expect Mills to do his best to make that decision as tough as he possibly can with his performance against the Colts.
Davis Mills shows more of what he can do this week ending with a stat line of 28-of-37 with 350 yards and four touchdowns. Week 6 is a statement game for Mills and it happens to be against the Colts on Sunday.
1: Houston Texans win
If not for poor coaching, and bad time management decisions, the Houston Texans would be coming into this game following a win that included an impressive showing from their rookie quarterback.
Look for offensive coordinator Tim Kelly to dial up a game plan like the first half against New England, unleashing Davis Mills. As the Mills and Kelly get more comfortable together, the play design will be better and more exotic, so expect to see more movement this weekend creating easy reads for Mills.
This win can also happen with the defense doing their job, meaning hopefully they force the Colts into multiple turnovers. If that happens, one can see the Texans winning this game.
The Colts are a 1-4 football team and aren’t as good as people think, so a 10-point spread is disrespectful especially following last week’s performance regardless of the final score.
The Houston Texans defeat the Colts by a final score of 34-21 in a good old-fashioned beat down, while telling the Vegas odds makers where they can take their 10-point spread. A victory for the Texans can happen as long as Culley doesn’t make the wrong calls and Mills doesn’t implode.
