Just after their blowout win on Thanksgiving, the Houston Texans received bad news that could hamper them for the remainder of the 2020 season. Will Fuller V and Bradley Roby were both suspended for the rest of the year due to PED violations. That's their top wide receiver and cornerback, which will be an enormous blow to a team that already has major issues.

In Week 13, they play a Indianapolis Colts rival that just dealt with a minor COVID outbreak in Week 12. Indy looks to get back on track against the Texans, and here is what the experts think about this AFC South faceoff.
