NFL preview capsule: Houston Texans at Indianapolis Colts, 8:20 p.m. Thursday

TONIGHT

Texans (10-4) at Colts (1-13)

8:20; NFL Network, 1010-AM. Line/over-under: Texans by 6; 40½

T.J. Yates came back to earth in Sunday's home loss to the Panthers. The Texans' third-string quarterback threw two interceptions after throwing one in his first three starts. Can he pull it together? Maybe. But what seems more certain is the Colts offense isn't dynamic enough to trump the Houston defense the way Carolina did last week. It's one thing to put up 27 points (as the Colts did in their first win last week) against the Titans. But that's unlikely against the Texans.

Stephen F. Holder's pick: Texans 24, Colts 17
