The Indianapolis Colts (6-7) and the Houston Texans (6-7) will face off in a huge game this Sunday that will go a long way in determining the AFC South division.
The winner of the game will have the clear edge toward winning the division, while the loser will need help in order to make the playoffs. With just three weeks remaining in the 2015 regular season, then, this is about as big of a game as you could get for the division title. With that said, however, it does feature two teams with sub-.500 records, taking a lot of the luster and attention off of this matchup. It likely won't be pretty, but it's a crucial game. Are the Colts treating it like a playoff game? "That's what it is," Chuck Pagano said earlier this week, and his point is clear: the Colts have to win this game if they want to get into the playoffs. They won't be mathematically eliminated if they lose, but they'll need help.
