The Indianapolis Colts and Houston Texans square off in a Week 2 matchup of teams that almost managed two ties last season.

The Texans lost 25-9 to the Baltimore Ravens to open the season but did manage to give them some trouble in C.J. Stroud’s debut.

Stroud threw for 242 yards and rushed for 20 yards in his debut.
