Reading the coverage: SD doesn't have Indy's number

Houston Texans

The Texans' run game is going in circles, says John McClain.

“Had the Texans stepped up and did what they did Sunday just once more this season we would be talking about realistic playoff possibilities. Twice more and they would control their postseason destiny.” Jerome Solomon on what could have been.

Rookie tight end Anthony Hill is out with a torn ACL, says McClain.

A look at the run-game disappointments from Battle Red Blog.

Indianapolis Colts

Jim Caldwell says healthy Colts starters will play in Jacksonville, says Mike Chappell.

With a Thursday night game looming, the Colts had no time to celebrate a record day, says Phil Richards.

Bill Polian allows himself to be impressed by the Colts record for wins in a decade, says John Oehser. Here’s his rundown of Polian’s weekly radio show.

Jim Irsay intends to have a new deal in place for Peyton Manning before next season, says Clark Judge.

Where does Jim Caldwell fit in the coach of the year debate, asks Deshawn Zombie.

The idea that the Chargers have the Colts’ number is way overblown, says Zombie. Really intelligent stuff here.

Defer to the Colts on the coin toss at your own risk, says D.J. Zaccagnini.

Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars have sold enough tickets to avoid the blackout, reports Chet Fussman.

Jacksonville waived Brian Witherspoon and added fullback Brock Bolen from the practice squad, which may indicate something about the status of the injured Greg Jones.

Every team with a quarterback 30 or older needs a quarterback of the future, says Vic Ketchman.

It’s David versus Goliath, says Gil Samson.

Tennessee Titans

Marshall Faulk is a Chris Johnson fan, say Jim Wyatt and Gary Estwick.

Vince Young got good news regarding his hamstring injury, says Wyatt.

The Titans have a playoff mindset about the Miami game, says Terry McCormick.

Eric Bakhtiari made a good impression, says Wyatt.
