Week 5 of the NFL season begins on Thursday night with the Andrew Luck-less Indianapolis Colts traveling to face the quarterback challenged no matter who is playing Houston Texans. Matt Hasselbeck is expected to start for Indianapolis. The Colts are 2-2, while the Texans are 1-3.
So, you don't get to see Luck tonight -- unless the constant sideline shots of him that are inevitable count. You do, however, get to see the Texans' cheerleaders. So, there is that.
