1. Texans will win Round 3 vs. Colts
The Indianapolis Colts are a very red-hot team right now and they are playing their best football of the season. That said, the Houston Texans aren’t slouches either and if any team can win a pressure-packed game that is Houston this season.
In 11 games this season the Texans have won or lost games by seven or less points, so if any team in the league that knows overtime games, or game coming down to final drives, the Texans are that team.
The Colts on eight occasions have seen games come down to eight or less points, so they too have played in some closely played games too. Also, both the Texans and Colts have played each other to three-point games both times, have also played in overtime against each other once.
Indy might have the more crisp offense in this game, but for the Texans the difference will come down to how J.J. Watt and the defense plays in this game. Being on the path he’s taken to get back from injuries in 2016 and 2017, this playoff game is a game Watt has most likely been waiting for all this time.
It is tough not to give credit to not only the Colts offense, but Darius Leonard — the rookie linebacker of the Colts — is going to be huge in this game, and the Texans are going to have to make sure he (and his teammates) stay away from Deshaun Watson.
As this game will progress the Texans as a whole will step up, gain the win and get back to the momentum they had earlier in the season.
Once the game is final the Texans should be the winner of this game and the final score will be: Texans 27, Colts 25.
