The Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts both enter their game with serious injury issues
What was originally billed as a fantastic Week 1 matchup to determine a division favorite is now something much different. Peyton Manning will not be playing for the Indianapolis Colts in this or any game in the foreseeable future. Arian Foster, the star running back for the Houston Texans, is a game time decision. The injuries have taken a lot of the luster off of this game, but that doesn't make it any less important.
The Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans are both clubs loaded with question marks. If the Texans beat a Manning-less Colts team comfortably, they're pretty clear division favorites in the AFC South. But if the Colts win? Find a four-way coin to flip.
