This week's Thursday Night Football match-up pits two tough division rivals in the Indianapolis Colts vs the Houston Texans.

Game time: 5:25pm Pacific (8:30pm Eastern)

TV: NFL Network

Here are what the two SB Nation blogs have to say about the game:

Colts blog Stampede Blue:

The Ravens defense that the Colts played last week was a "bend but don't break" defense, and as expected the Colts marched up and down the field on them. But when the drives got to the red zone (or started near it), the Colts struggled to put the ball into the end zone. The Texans defense is similar in that regard - they'll give up a lot of yards but not a ton of points, and that's because of their red zone defense. The Colts didn't convert their opportunities into touchdowns last week, and that's something that they must do Thursday night.

Texans blog Battle Red Blog:

I scanned their site and couldn't find a single piece of useful information I could capture for you. Lesson learned.

FYI: This game is the start of the pinkification of the NFL for Breast Cancer Awareness month (even though none of the proceeds actually go to cancer research). So expect that hot pink color eh-vry-where.
