The Houston Texans are set to face the Indianapolis Colts in Week 13.

Sunday’s game for the Houston Texans is the first without the suspended Will Fuller and Bradley Roby, so in Week 13 the Texans already have the odds against them before the kickoff even takes place.

The Houston Texans will be facing the Indianapolis Colts (7-4) at NRG Stadium as Deshaun Watson attempts to lead his team to a third straight win. If that happens, the Texans would have five wins on the season as they enter this AFC South showdown at 4-7 overall.

Watson will need his best game yet without the services of Fuller, as now he’s lost his top receiver for the second time this year.

Before the season the Texans traded Watson’s top All-Pro target, and now Fuller is suspended for the remainder of the season, so the task of defeating the Colts won’t be a walk in the park by any means for the Houston Texans.

That said, there is also the fact Randall Cobb is injured, and will miss three weeks, meaning Watson has also lost his top slot wide receiver for this game. It will be up to Keke Coutee to step up his level of play against the Colts, along with new top wide receiver Brandin Cooks, and rookie Isaiah Coulter.

If there is one team that Coutee has stepped up his level of play against it is the Colts as two of his very best games of his career have been against Indianapolis. In his NFL debut, Coutee caught 11 passes for 109 yards back in 2018. In the playoffs that season vs. the Colts, Coutee had 11 receptions for 110 yards and a touchdown.

Looking over at the Colts, the players besides the offensive stars the Texans will have to keep track of will be on the defense, and one really stands out as he’s making his return off the COVID-19 list.

That player is defensive end DeForest Buckner. Also returning for Indianapolis in Week 13 are defensive lineman and team sack leader Denico Autry and on the offensive side it will be running back Jonathan Taylor.

As for Buckner, he has 23 solo tackles this season and 2.5 sacks, and most likely if he’s up to speed after sitting out games, will be a force for the offensive line of the Texans to slow down, much less stop.

As always this will be a tough matchup for the Texans as games against the Colts are never easy. The Houston Texans are playing better than before, but without Fuller on the offense, success will be more difficult to achieve.
