Breakfast: Preparing for the Colts


With just four games remaining, the Texans begin preparations for a familiar foe, the Indianapolis Colts.

"I mean, you've played these guys already one time, so you could say that from a preparation standpoint, you have an idea of their personnel," head coach Bill O'Brien said Monday. "Now, some of the personnel has changed a little bit, maybe based on roster moves that Indianapolis has made during the year. But overall, you have played these guys several times, coaching staffs have played against each other several times now."

O'Brien led the Texans to back-to-back victories against the Indianapolis Colts, including the first-ever win at Lucas Oil Stadium last season and the 26-23 overtime thriller in Week 6. Facing Andrew Luck is never an easy task, according to O'Brien, who praised the quarterback's playmaking abilities.

"Andrew's big, he can run, he's very accurate, he's very tough, he never thinks the play's over, so he's very difficult to sack," O'Brien said. "I mean, I just was watching a game where he basically made the play on his own in the red zone, scrambled around and fired a strike for a touchdown. Just a great player. Great player, very competitive guy. I've always enjoyed watching him. Haven't always enjoyed coaching against him, but he's a great player."

The Texans will travel to Indianapolis to play the Colts on Sunday. Kickoff is set for 12 p.m. on CBS and SportsRadio 610.

The Traveling Texans showed up strong in support of their favorite team on Sunday in Green Bay.
