Week 6 of NFL action gets underway in Houston this evening, as the Texans will play host to their division rivals, the Indianapolis Colts.

Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .

-CCNorseman broke down some of the matchups for this Sunday's game between the Minnesota Vikings and the Detroit Lions.

-The trial date for running back Adrian Peterson is tentatively set for 1 December.

-Some new details have come out about Tom Johnson's arrest over the weekend.

From some other sites across the internet. . .

-Head coach Mike Zimmer had plenty of praise for rookie linebacker Anthony Barr.

-The pink shoes will be back on Sunday at TCF Bank Stadium.

-The district attorney in the Peterson trial has requested that the judge in the case recuse himself.

The rules of the Open Thread are the same as they've ever been, ladies and gentlemen. . .no politics, no religion, no feeding of the trolls, keep the bad language to a minimum (using spoiler tags, if necessary), and keep the GIFs relatively work-safe.

For your musical entertainment today. . .MOAR METAL!

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for this Thursday, ladies and gentlemen. Enjoy the rest of your day!
