Locker: Texans' home-opener against Colts is 'must-win' game because of opponent


(SportsRadio 610) - If there is a such thing as a must-win game in Week 2 of the NFL season, it's the Texans' home-opener Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts.

Like the Texans last week at Baltimore, the Colts enter this game with a first-year head coach and rookie quarterback playing in their first road game. Also, their quarterback Anthony Richardson has a bruised knee and while he showed flashes of what made him the No. 4 overall pick, he also showed some limitations.

The Texans don't want to go to Jacksonville in Week 3 with their record at 0-2, especially after playing this Colts team.

In The Loop's Landry Locker makes the case here. John P. Lopez isn't calling it a "must-win," but acknowledges it's a huge opportunity for this young Houston team.
