The 2015 NFL Week 5 schedule kicks off tonight with the Indianapolis Colts (2-2) and the Houston Texans (1-3) set to face off on Thursday Night Football. It's an AFC South rivalry matchup.

Neither of these teams has looked very good this season. The Colts are especially troubled right now because they will be without starting quarterback Andrew Luck. The 40-year-old Matt Hasselbeck, backed up by Josh Johnson, is expected to start against the Texans. Hasselbeck is dealing with an illness so he's not even 100% healthy. J.J. Watt and the Houston defense could look to capitalize on the Colts' bad luck (see what I did there?).

The Eagles play neither of these teams in 2015 so there isn't a lot of invested interest here.
