The Indianapolis Colts (9-4) continue to shock the NFL. Not only have they put themselves into the driver’s seat for a wildcard playoff spot in the AFC, but they are still within striking distance of a division title. This reloaded Colts team has stood tall all season long, with a never-say-die attitude. Regardless of wins or losses, the Colts have fought tooth-and-nail, until the final buzzer in every game this season.
The Colts have put themselves into uncharted territory, by winning nine games with a rookie quarterback, while being coached by a brand new coaching staff. On top of that, this franchise finds themselves still able to regain the AFC South division title. The Colts will play two of their final three regular season games against the Houston Texans, and can still aquire a first-round home game in the playoffs.
The Texans have a record of 11-2 so far this year, but have been tested and exposed a few times recently. Houston won two consecutive overtime games in November, but was also blown away by the New England Patriots in week 14. The Colts have won seven of their last eight games, but will face a big test against a Texans team on the rebound.
