Colts Cast: Colts face true test in Week 12 AFC South matchup with Texans with Kevin Hickey

The Indianapolis Colts bounced back in a big way in Week 11 as they dominated the ground attack, and put another quality defensive effort in the books. However, in Week 12, and on a short week at that, the Colts will have their hands full with Deshaun Watson and the Houston Texans in NRG Stadium.

On today’s show, Kevin Hickey of the Colts Wire, joins Matt Danely to take a look at the current state of the Colts, as well as a look ahead to their all-important Thursday Night Football matchup.

The Colts have a few key pieces ruled out for the game, and another handful who are still questionable — including T.Y. Hilton — but luckily the Texans are banged up as well.

This meeting could not be more important for the Colts. They currently have the same record as the Texans, but the Colts hold the tie-breaker as it currently stands. With a win Thursday night in Houston, the Colts will ultimately hold a two-game lead over their AFC South foes, and remain undefeated within the division.

The Colts will need to get their running game on track without Marlon Mack there to lead the way, the receiving corps may have to continue another game without Hilton, and the offensive line is looking to put another quality game together while improving their pass protection in the process.

The Colts’ defense has been the team’s strength over the past several weeks, and they’re going to need another impressive outing against Watson and this Texans’ offense who will be looking to bounce back after a massive Week 11 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Matt and Kevin discuss all of this and more as the Colts hope to create more space between themselves and the rest of the AFC South.
