Week 15: at the Indianapolis Colts

I’ve already discussed why Houston’s games against the Colts are so important in 2015, and this game may be the single most important game of the entire season. In week 15-17, the Texans will face all three of their divisional opponents, and this game against the Colts will be the start of this gauntlet.

It seems likely that Houston and Indianapolis will end up atop the AFC South standings in 2015, so whichever team comes out ahead in their head-to-head matches will obviously have the advantage.

As the season comes to a close, Houston will very possibly be right on the edge of clinching a playoff spot, and each game will be as crucial as the next. However, this game against the Colts could very well decide the final divisional standings, and how the season ends for the Texans.
