The Houston Texans get to see the NFL’s leading rusher, Johnathon Taylor, and his Colts crew once again.
After their latest loss to the New York Jets, the Houston Texans are in for another challenging game against the Indianapolis Colts. This time the Texans get to play host to a Colts team that should have beaten the Tampa Bay Buccaneers if it wasn’t for Carson Wentz being Carson Wentz.
The last time Houston saw Taylor, he wasn’t on the incredible tear that he is now. Their earlier matchup was just the second time Taylor went over 100 yards in a game during the season. It’s safe to say that Taylor will break that barrier again as the Colts fight for a playoff spot.
The Colts lead the all-time series against the Texans, with a record of 31-9.

Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans prediction Week 13
Before the game even begins, the sudden choice to make Justin Reid a healthy scratch on Sunday will be something to watch this week. How will that affect the Houston Texans and their players, and will more drama unveil itself on game day?
For the game prediction, the Texans don’t have too much of a chance on paper. However, a 2-1 record against divisional opponents may signal a slight chance that Houston can hang with Indianapolis.
That won’t happen this time. Indianapolis is coming off of a barnburner loss to the Buccaneers, where their offense scored 31 points. Nevertheless, Indianapolis will grind away the Texans just like they did earlier this year, and a crucial win for the Colts is secured on Sunday.
