Texans trail by a touchdown with Novak's 49-yard field goal. 27-20, Colts lead.

I haven't seen Ryan Mallett and Brian Hoyer within 10 yards of each other on the sideline lately.
Kevin Seifert NFL Nation
These TDs aren’t just the first two catches of Jaleen Strong’s career. They’re the first two targets of his career as well. Pretty efficient.
Matthew Berry's Love/Hate Week 5
Eli Manning has been on a hot streak, tossing 7 TDs in his last 3 games. And with the 49ers coming to town, Berry believes it's a recipe for a handful of big plays vs. a team that has allowed the most 20-plus-yard plays this year. Love/Hate Week 5
Ed Werder @Edwerderespn
Matthew Berry's Love/Hate Week 5
Berry can't get enough of the rookie who ran all over the Cardinals a week ago. With the Packers on the docket, who allow the third-most yards before contact and yards per rush, Todd Gurley could go off on Sunday. Love/Hate Week 5

Colts dominate Thursday night football
The Colts have won 10 straight Thursday games (including Thanksgiving games), the longest such winning streak in the NFL. The Colts last loss on Thursday night was the 2004 season opener against the Patriots. They lead the Texans 13-10 at halftime. Follow live

COLTS 13, TEXANS 10 (halftime): Jaelen Strong's first NFL catch was a 42-yard first-half Hail Mary touchdown catch on a pass from Brian Hoyer. Strong was inactive in the Texans prior three games. Hoyer took over for Ryan Mallett who appears to have been benched.
Flacco reads classic book to kids
There's no doubt about it, "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" is an elite children's book. Here to read it to Baltimore City elementary school students ... is Ravens QB Joe Flacco. Watch it
Foster taken to locker room after hit

Arian Foster has gone to the locker room for concussion protocol. He sat out for one play before re-entering but has since been removed.
Yesterday Sean Rodriguez, today Arian Foster. Not a great last 24 hours for water coolers.
Hoyer replaces Mallett after hard hit
Texans QB Ryan Mallett went to the sidelines in the 2nd quarter after taking a helmet to the ribs and was replaced by Brian Hoyer. Mallett was ready to return to the game after two plays, but Hoyer remains in the game. Follow live
Kevin Seifert @SeifertESPN
The Texans couldn’t have less conviction about their QBs than they do. Mallet gets the wind knocked out of him and can’t get back in.
