NFL Picks - Week 5 Thursday

Indianapolis @ Houston

Apparently Matthew "Matt" Hasselbeck has been sick all week following the Colts overtime win over the Jaguars. In fact, the reports say he began to feel ill during the second half of that game. If true, that would place Hasselbeck's Week 4 performance right up there with the Jordan flu game, if not above it. Being the hero that he is, MH has decided to step aside this week and cede the spotlight back to Andrew Luck. Meanwhile, in Texans news, Bill O'Brien still can't seem to settle on a starting quarterback. His strategy of swapping Mallett and Hoyer out for one another on a game-to-game basis so as to shatter the confidence of both players is an interesting one. We'll see if it pays off at some point this season, but it certainly doesn't seem to be working as of now.

UPDATE: It appears Matthew Hasselbeck will be doing no such ceding, and he will be starting once again. My pick will stay the same, because I believe in MH. I don't care if he's 40 and was on an IV drip two days ago.

Colts 24-17
