Week 9 of the 2013 NFL season is just about ready to wrap up, with just the two primetime games remaining. Tonight, we get the Houston Texans hosting the Indianapolis Colts. This looked like a great game two months ago, but now it's just kind of meh as the Texans are rather terrible.

This is huge for the Colts as they need to figure out what they've got with Reggie Wayne on the shelf with a torn ACL. Will T.Y. Hilton and Darrius Heyward-Bey step up? Will Trent Richardson figure out what has caused him to struggle this season? I don't know, but the Colts need to get it figure out quickly. The Colts stand at 5-2, but with the Tennessee Titans beating the St. Louis Rams, a loss would drop the Colts' first place lead to just one game.

The Texans are a dumpster fire right now, which is hard to figure out given the talent they have. Matt Schaub struggled and has been replaced by Case Keenum. The wheels are coming off this thing, and it is not pretty.
