Game: Houston Texans (6-7) at Indianapolis Colts (6-7)

Prediction: This Sunday’s matchup between the rival Texans and Colts will be to determine who will sit atop the AFC South for first place in the division.

Although when these two teams met in Houston this year, the Texans fell just short to the Colts. Making this game the most important of the season.

The Texans will look to TJ Yates who will look to lead the team to their first win at Indianapolis since the inception of the franchise. Since Yates is the starter over Hoyer this Sunday, I am willing to put the Texans in the winning column this Sunday in pen.

With Jadeveon Clowney stepping up into the player he was drafted to become, this defense looks the part that everyone predicted it would be this offseason. Clowney and JJ Watt will be facing an atrocious Colts offensive line and will be looking to pin their ears back to have their way with whoever gets to start for the Colts.

The offense with TJ Yates will put up enough to win this game as the Houston defense will have their way all day with the Colts.

Final score: Houston 40, Colts 20
