At 0-3 on the season, the Houston Texans can’t afford another loss. Unfortunately for the struggling team, Sunday’s game against the division-rival Indianapolis Colts didn’t get off to a great start.

Having received the opening kickoff, Andrew Luck and the Colts drove down the field 75 yards on seven plays. It culminated in this touchdown pass from Luck to wide receiver Zach Pascal.



The touchdown itself might not have been anything to write home about. But Luck completed 5-of-5 attempts for 68 yards during what was an impressive opening drive.

Remember, Luck had struggled over the past two games to the tune of three touchdowns and two interceptions. This is the best he’s looked since returning from a shoulder injury that cost the former Pro Bowler the entire 2017 season.

As it relates to the Texans, this is worrisome as all get out. Houston entered Week 4 having yielded a 119.9 quarterback rating. This drive did nothing to help in that regard.
