Two In A Row?
Houston at Indianapolis
Can the Colts actually win back-to-back games? To put it simply…No. Indy’s magical “Run to One” will come to an end tonight, when the 1-13 Colts host the playoff-bound Texans. Arian Foster continues to show that he is one of the best backs in the NFL, and this matchup shouldn’t slow him down. Houston comes in averaging over 150 rushing yards per game, and the Colts give up nearly 140. Translation: Big day for the Texans’ ground game. Besides, with the No. 1 overall pick in next year’s draft well within reach, Indy has little to gain by winning this game.
With a much-improved Texans’ defense and an underwhelming Colts’ offense, this game really shouldn’t be close. Then again, this IS the NFL…
My Pick: Texans 35 – Colts 10
