Indianapolis Colts (0-0) vs. Houston Texans (0-0)

When: 1:00 p.m. Sunday, CBS

SB Nation Colts: Stampede Blue

SB Nation Texans: Battle Red Blog

Breakdown: If you're into fantasy football, then this game is for you. There will be plenty of points scored as two of the best offenses face off against each other. The key to this game will be the defense for each team coming up with a big stop or a big turnover. It may only take one since both teams plan to score early and often.

Player to Watch: Keep an eye on Texans RB Arian Foster. RB Steve Slaton is battling turf toe which could mean a larger role for Foster. This game is all about the quarterbacks but Foster could slow the game down for the Texans and help control the clock if they can secure a lead.

Line: Colts are 2.5 point favorites.

Prediction: Many are saying this is the time the Texans finally overcome the Colts but we'll have to see it to believe it. The Colts should win this one by a touchdown.
