This Sunday at 6 pm UK time, we see the top two teams in the AFC South face off against each other. The Houston Texans currently top the division with a nine and three record, with the Indianapolis Colts in second place with a .500 record of six and six.

Recent Form

In their previous game, the Houston Texans increased their franchise-record win streak to nine wins with a 29-13 victory over Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns. Mayfield threw three interceptions against the Houston defence and was held to just one touchdown.

Deshaun Watson had one touchdown on 22/31 throwing with 224 passing yards. Lamar Miller lead the Texans in rushing yards with 103 on 19 carries. DeAndre Hopkins had the most receiving yards with 91 on seven receptions, Jordan Thomas had Houston’s only offensive touchdown. Zach Cunningham intercepted a Mayfield pass and returned it for a 38-yard-touchdown, Ka’imi Fairbairn went had 17 points from field goals and was five for five on FG attempts.

The Indianapolis Colts faced the Jacksonville Jaguars last Sunday are were beaten 6-0. Andrew Luck and the Colts offence were completely shutdown by Jalen Ramsey and co, Luck was sacked three times and tackled for a loss 5.5 times.

Luck had 248 passing yards and one interception on 33/52 throwing, Marlon Mack, who lead the offence in rushing yards, had just 27 yards on eight carries. Eric Ebron lead in receiving yards with 81 on 10 receptions. Ultimately there were no touchdowns scored in the game at all, however, the Jags nailed to field goals, one in the second quarter and one in the fourth.

Team News

Zach Fulton did not participate in practice for the Texans on Thursday, Keke Coutee, Trevor Daniel, DeAndre Hopkins, Kareem Jackson, Johnathan Joseph, Justin Reid, Deshaun Watson and J.J. Watt all had limited participation in practice.

Mo Allie-Cox, Eric Ebron, Clayton Geathers, T.Y. Hilton, Margus Hunt, Dontrelle Inman, Ryan Kelly and Mike Mitchell did not participate in practice for the Colts, Nate Hairston, Malik Hooker, Chris Milton, Chester Rogers and Erik Swoope all had limited participation according to the NFL’s week 14 injury report.

Prediction

We think that the Texans will be able to extend their winning streak to 10 wins and continue to set franchise records. However, don’t expect this one to be a blowout, Luck has played at an MVP level all year so you can never count him out.
