The Houston Texans are in a free-fall right now, and beating a divisional opponent would help them get back on track.
The fact that the Indianapolis Colts have utter dominance of the all-time series with a 30-9 record over Houston shows how much of an uphill battle the team faces in Week 6.
The Texans are coming off having a lead but blowing it against Bill Belichick and the Patriots. Ironically, the Colts did the same to the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football. Both teams at one point last week led by a score of 22-9.
That proved to be fatal for both teams, getting a big-time loss after playing so well for the majority of the game.

Houston at Indianapolis Prediction Week 6
Where was that kind of performance from Carson Wentz on Monday Night Football? That’s what Frank Reich was hoping to get out of his franchise quarterback from the get-go. Meanwhile, Davis Mills also had his best game of the season, passing for over 300 yards and three touchdowns.
This Week 6 matchup feels more like a barn burner waiting to happen, as the Colts defense was gassed late in the game against the Ravens. This will come down to how well Davis Mills can thread passes to receivers and keep drives alive.
It’s a winnable game, but it will be close.
Final score: Houston 27, Indianapolis 24
