On Sunday night, the Indianpaolis Colts will play their biggest game of the season to-date as they travel to Houston to face the first-place Texans.
The Texans are 3-2 and atop the AFC South, but the Colts aren’t far behind in a two-way tie for second with the Titans at 2-3. So if the Colts manage to beat the Texans on Sunday, they would jump to the top of the AFC South standings thanks to the tiebreakers. So yes, a team that has looked terrible on defense for most of this season and that just a week ago was 1-3 now has a chance to take the division lead with a win on Sunday - just two weeks later. Such is life in the AFC South.
It’s a big game for Indianapolis (and for Houston), and it will be televised nationally on Sunday Night Football. Here’s all of the information you need to get you ready for the week six matchup:
