The Houston Texans will face the Indianapolis Colts in Week 15.
A couple weeks ago when the Houston Texans lost to the Indianapolis Colts, it was a heartbreaker as the Texans fumbled on their final play near the goal line to suffer the AFC South loss. This Sunday in the second meeting between the two rivals, the Colts have more to lose than the Texans this time around.
In Week 13 the Texans were still clinging onto a very small hope for the playoffs, but that faraway dream is over. However, the Colts are still battling for a playoff spot and still have a chance to win the AFC South if they can add to their win total and the Tennessee Titans slip up in the next three weeks.
Indianapolis is 9-4 entering this Week 15 game at Lucas Oil Stadium, while the Houston Texans are 4-9, and they had two more injuries added to their defense this week with Brandon Dunn and Justin Reid out for the rest of the season. So now an already beat-up and 30th-ranked Texans defense will have to figure out a way to stop the 11th-ranked offense of the Colts.
The Colts are also the sixth-best passing offense in 2020 with Philip Rivers as their starting quarterback, and they have the 17th-ranked running game. The Texans on their side have the 18th-best offense with Deshaun Watson being the leader of the unit. Watson and the Texans offense will be facing the sixth-ranked defense of the Colts in this game.
Houston’s rushing attack in 2020 has been awful as they are 32nd ranked overall entering this game, but at least David Johnson has been activated for this game, which has to help the rising woes as of late.

Though a couple weeks ago the Houston Texans lost by a 26-20 score to the Colts, this time around it will be even tougher to battle with a Colts team who is playing for something positive, while the Texans have just their pride to play for. If the Texans play like they did last Sunday against the Bears, then the Colts could be earning their 10th win of the season.
This game will have the broadcast team of Greg Gumbel and Rich Gannon.
