The Houston Texans will face off against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday in the NFL as the top two sides in the AFC South clash in what should be an intriguing encounter. The game is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream via the link provided below.
This game is huge as the Colts continue to surprise and impress pundits and fans this season. Many have been waiting all season for the Colts to start to slump, and prior to the season getting going many had them listed down as one of the basement teams in the NFL, and by this stage would be looking at their draft position rather than the playoffs.
However, the fact that they come into this game looking to move within a game of the big guns – the Houston Texans – is stunning in itself.
The Colts are 9-4 and at the moment are two games out from the 11-2 Houston Texans. A surprise win today would see the Colts move to within one game of the Texans.
The Texans will know that if they can win at home today then they will clinch the divisional title two weeks early from the end of the regular season. They will also be hoping for the Denver Broncos and New England Patriots to slump, allowing them to gain a first round bye in the playoffs.
But the Colts will have other plans and will be looking to continue to turn heads. They will certainly do that if they beat the Texans today, and in doing so would confirm their place in the playoffs. Indianapolis will also have to play the Texans again in Week 17.
Andrew Luck has led the Colts to win seven of their last eight games and they will be hoping to continue their fantastic form all the way through to the postseason.
The Colts will also not get a better time to take down the Texans, who might have some self-doubts after being humbled by the New England Patriots last week. However, other pundits believe that the Colts could be hitting the Texans at the wrong time, as they will be in no mood to play nice following last weeks beatdown at the hands of the Patriots. They will be looking to send out a message to the entire NFL that last week was a simple blip, and that they are resuming as normal right away.
