The 6-6 Indianapolis Colts travel to Houston to face off against the 9-3 Texans. At 6-6, Indianapolis is a game out of the wildcard race in the AFC. After the Titans’ Thursday night win over the Jaguars, the Colts need to win to pull even in the division.
The only playoff spot that looks shaky at this point is owned by the Baltimore Ravens. A win in Houston and Baltimore loss in Kansas City would go a long way to staying in the hunt. A loss and a surprise Baltimore against the Chiefs would make the odds of getting into the playoffs very low.
Each week is must-win from here out. Today’s afternoon meeting in Houston will kick off back-to-back games against teams who are projected to make the playoffs. Indy must do work today for next week to matter.
