With a combined 1-5 record entering Week 4, things haven’t exactly gone according to plan for both the Texans and Colts thus far in 2018.
However, with each of the starting quarterbacks on the verge of returning to form, there could be a tipping point in regards to offensive output when the two AFC South rivals meet Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium.
This is essentially a must-win game for the 0-3 Texans. Only one team in NFL history — one — has made the playoffs after dropping its first four contests (1992 San Diego Chargers).
Since a lackluster season debut in New England — his first regular season game since last October, by the way — Watson has begun to look more like the quarterback who was putting up a whopping 34.7 points per game in his six starts a year ago.
In his last two games, Watson has tallied almost 700 passing yards and tossed four touchdowns while turning the ball over only twice. He’s also logged 80 yards on the ground.
