Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans: Preview & Predictions

Josh Zerkle@JoshZerkleChief Writer IIIDecember 11, 2012

The Texans dropped the ball against the Patriots in Foxborough in Week 14. Could their division rival send them to the loss column for the second consecutive week?

Houston (11-2) has played well against competitive teams all season long, but its weak secondary leaves it exposed against elite quarterbacks. Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers are the only two quarterbacks to beat the Texans this season, but one is left to wonder if the Texans' performances in those games are to be repeated come playoff time. 

Indianapolis (9-4) is still riding the wave of Andrew Luck mania. Despite playing arguably his worst game of the regular season, Luck managed to eke out a win against Tennessee in Week 14. With the Colts' seat at the AFC playoff table all but assured, their performance against a vulnerable Texans team should serve as a fair barometer of what we can expect from them come January.
