Colts vs. Texans: How to watch, game time, TV schedule, online streaming and more

It’s finally here. The end of the 2022 NFL season for the Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts. Here’s how to tune-in.

Here it is, folks. This is arguably the least interesting game of the 2022 NFL season. The AFC South is wrapped, and the Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts waived bye-bye to playoff hopes weeks ago. At best, this game could impact draft position this spring.

Houston is guaranteed the first overall pick with a loss. Given their need to draft a quarterback, one can argue that losing is their best option. Losing the top pick, which could happen if Chicago lost and Houston won, open the Texans up to having a team jump ahead of them and snag the quarterback they covet most.

So, suck for INSERT PLAYER NAME is on in Houston.

Indianapolis could fall back to sixth with a win. A loss and some help could move them from the fifth spot to third. It’s not likely that help would come, but every spot at the top of the draft matters when a team is looking for a long-term quarterback. It’s incredible how expensive it is to move up only a few spots in the draft. One loss on Sunday could mean multiple draft picks and be the difference between getting the player the Colts want or deciding whether to overdraft a second or third option.

Talk about two teams without any motivation to win. The biggest monkey wrench that could come into play is that the players are playing for the future. Young players are looking to prove they deserve more opportunities in the future, perhaps on other teams. The risk of rolling over and giving up such a rare chance to shine is considerable at the player level.

Which team has more players in that position? The answer to that question could be the answer to which team wins.
