After starting the season with a 11-1 record, the Texans were worried about securing home-field advantage in the AFC playoffs when they traveled to Foxboro to play the Patriots on Monday Night Football.
Now, after losing 42-14, Houston has to play the first of two games against the 9-4 Colts in the next three weeks. As a result, Indianapolis still controls its destiny in the division.
The Colts have been living dangerously over the last few weeks, but late-game heroics from rookie star Andrew Luck has them on the verge of clinching a playoff spot, and perhaps more, when they travel to Houston on Sunday.
