Ok I know we are all down about last nights game. I honestly think this sets up a good match-up vs the pats in the play-offs. Revenge is always more sweet especially when it matters the most :). But until then

We got the colts and I feel very sorry for them and especially luck hopefully he makes it through the game cause I see Watt recking havoc.

Texans 51
Colts 17

Yeah I feel they will be our punching bag. Foster 130 yards 2 TDs, martin 1 PR TD, jean and martin a TD apiece with AJ adding over 100 yards and a TD. Defense sacks luck 7 times and picks him off 3 more.

I don't think it'll be a blowout.

They are having a magical season of sorts...but talk about lack of quality wins...That is the Colts. They have one against the Packers earlier in the year.

I don't think it'll be a blowout, but I think we will still win strongly.

After last night, the Texans will be in a mood to kick some ass. And that's what they will do. The Dolts are going down by 17 points or more.

35-32 Texans.
I've watched the Colts. They can score points. Our secondary looks like a mess right now.

I think we win, but I think it will be close

Oliver Luck is already, in his rookie year, proving thst he's an elite QB, and will be a thorn in our side for the next 10-15 years. We have been horribly exposed for the team they really are . . . A paper mâché 11-2 team that probably won't even win the division, and end up with a first round playoff loss.

Gotta leave the homer tag in the glovebox. I predicted the Pats would blow us out, and the score was even worse than I even predicted. Luck will lead the Colts to another come from behind win . . 27-21 . . and it might not even be that close.

Won't call luck "elite" after his first year, seen this happen to many times to rookies. Let's see how he looks this time next year before we all join BSPN in crowing him...

I would hardly call Andrew Luck "elite" at this point. He throws as many picks as he does TD's and he's been feasting on awful competition. The Colts beat GB, which is good, but that's the only good team they've beaten. The Pats beat them 59-24 by the way.

This will be that same type of game we had vs the Ravens after we got shellacked by the Packers.

Texans are not as bad as people are making them out to be. It's as if we lose two games in a 13 game process and all of a sudden we're worse than a bunch of 5-year-olds playing flag football. I don't buy it.

Texans 41

Colts 21, maybe 24 or even 27...but they won't win this game.

I am sure there are more than a few guys right now on the roster who wish we could turn the lights on in Reliant and play the Colts tonight.

I really think the guys are seething mad right now. JJ Watt, single handedly, is going to straight up try to get 10 sacks all by himself in this game. He has bad intentions on his mind after that mess with the Patriots.

I hope they are not mad.

They need to get out of their emotions.

Just show up with a workman like attitude. Because if they show up mad and pissed or and spitting Venom and the Colts come in and pop them one good time that fire breathing dragon is going to turn into a scared, pissing puppy.

Save the emotions Texans. Realize that you need the win, but just go about your business.

I don't know what to predict at this point. I think we'll win, but I could easily envision a scenario in which we lose.

Oliver Luck is too old to play. However, we should be concerned about his son, Andrew, as he's been playing very well this year. :fingergun:

I agreed with you about the Patriots last week. I did not expect to win, but I hoped the Texans were competitive.

But I disagree with you about the Colts next Sunday. I think the Texans will come out strong and win the division at Reliant. It won't be an easy game, though.

I fully expect the Colts to get beat this weekend as the match-ups clearly favor Houston, but is the Houston schedule really all that different? You guys played the Ravens while the Colts got the Browns. And then you got the Broncos while Indy plays the Chiefs in a couple of weeks. Other than that, the schedules are no different.

Clubber Lang does not show up in this thread, at least not in my post. The Texans have embarrassed Clubber and he's too busy pitying them to make a prediction.

I predict that the Texans season hinges on how they respond to that ass-whipping they took last night. Either they've lost the last game they're going to lose this year or they're about to go down in an epic three game skid and I don't which one it is.

Like has already been posted, those 2 games make a big difference. The Browns and the Chiefs are goddawful and we had to play 2 of the best teams in the AFC and beat them. I was just pointing out that Indy really hasn't beaten anyone that can be considered good, other than GB, and have barely beaten bad teams. I know we squeaked one out over JAX but we've for the most part have beaten the crap out of bad teams while you guys almost lost to the Tacks just last week.

Chad Henne set the bar against our D. Luck is much better and will throw for at least 3 TDs. The question is will he throw enough int's to offset it for us to win.

you better hope your right...would be sad to go from 11-1 to 11-2 to getting knocked down to wild card by losing to a rookie..from waht i read you dont have alot of faith in your qb or coach...that doesnt fair well in the playoffs...if everyones in doubt

You mean they know how to get the refs to call all sort of bogus PI on us?

Or do they know how to make our receivers dropping balls by doing nothing?
Or how to get our guys to fail to pick up a fumble without their guys having anything to do with it?
Or how to get Schaub to miss receivers by just staring at him?

If so, we may as well not show up at Reliant :)

They are -16 in turnover-diff

By comparison, the Jags are dead even. The Lions are -6, the Titans are -10

The Bears are +13.... the Pats are +24

I know these numbers don't begin to tell the story. They still have to play the game. But just like the numbers showed the Patriots offense to be in another league to us, everything shows us to be a much better team than the Colts.

I know we've given up a bunch of yards & a bunch of points. But this game is going to be over early. The Colts are going to make a surge late & make it look closer than it will be. But the Colts are in a different league this year.

It's "must have", "could have", "should have", or "would have".

Not "must of", "could of", "should of", or "would of".

And don't come to me about being a "grammar nazi" or saying that it's "just a message board", because you're already in enemy territory and the last thing you want to do is post in laughable fashion.

Texans 30, Colts 20

We respond with a decent 10-point win after another embarrassment on primetime TV. Time to get Foster and Tate going. Best running back tandem in the league.

Tate in particular, he's ready to run over people now that he's healthy. Expect a boring and Kubiak-esque, grind 'em out, run the ball 30 to 40 times type of game.

The Texans rarely lose when they run the ball at least 30 times.

They were unable to hit that magic number against New England.

Time to clinch the 2012 AFC South.

And you know that would be the outcome of those games how exactly?

Look, the Colts have been a fun, unexpected ride this year for us Indy fans and like I said, Houston should win on Sunday. But minimizing the schedule is pointless. You play who you play and add 'em at the end. And like I said when 14 of 16 are the same for in-division teams, it really does not make much of a difference.

The Colts absolutely fell into a pile of crap last year and came out smelling like a rose. We went to the Titans game in Nashville this year and a Tack fan was lamenting about getting Manning out of the division and now having to face Luck. Kinda made me smile ;)

I suspect there will be a pretty good rivalry with the Texans for the division for the next few years.

Tom Brady >>> Andrew Luck

Don't fool yourself that Luck is anywhere near that level.

Your team also lost to a crappy Jets team, a garbage Jaguars team, and were blown away by the Bears. All three of the teams the Texans beat.

The Texans lost two games, both to championship caliber teams. But we certainly did not lost to any bottom feeders like the Jets and Jaguars.

I want these two games vs. the Colts more than any other game this season (playoffs aside).

Really want to get this whole Luck/Colts era started right, whipping on them to show them who owns this division.

If that can lead to them missing the playoffs that would be icing on the cake.

If Kubiak were a smart man, His number one priority would be to win the division. We can do that Sunday by beating the Colts.

After that, the most important thing we can do is stay ahead of the Patriots. If they win Sunday as well, against the 49ers, their remaining schedule is cake. If they do what they do in December, win, we will have no choice but to keep winning.

If it's us & them at 13-3 they get HFThroughout. If we're 14-2 & they are 13-3, we get HFThroughout.

Pats fan perspective having played both teams.

It comes down to their run defense and your passing defense. The unit that steps up wins. The Colts are very porous against the run and you should be able to wear them down. Shaub is much more effective when he's throwing play action when the running game is clicking. While your team is dramatically more talented it's a QB driven league. While Luck is no Brady or Rogers at this point he might be as good as Stafford, who IMO wouldn't be good at all without CJ, and Stafford had a big day against your defense. Luck will eventually be much better than Stafford but for now I think it's a valid comp. I also think the first quarter is clutch for both teams. If the Texans come out mad and run the ball down their throats I think they'll roll. If Indy can survive that onslaught watch out for another comeback and close game win.

All that said Texans 31-21.

The only way we get a blowout like that if our defense and special teams help us out. If they don't it's 7-0 Texans. The offense go on autopilot with a lead every time.

I wouldn't worry at all.

Sometimes, well, often times, when the signal is too strong, it bounced the other way.

But there's no harm in "trusting" your emotion regarding your football team.

As long as we know the outcome might be contradicting, I like it much better going into the game with full of hope.

When the situation turns dire, we realize that it's just a regular season game.
No biggie.

The play-offs are different though, because anybody can win on game day.

I really didn't think the Texans would win in new England last week. Guess the reason I wasn't mad or anything. I don't know why. However I do expect them to sweep the colts. I have no idea how that team is winning with that crappy of a defense.

Lots of smokes and mirrors.

Nothing about the Colts winning makes much sense. The defense is talent deficient in lots of areas. The turnover ratio is awful. They have had periods of just flat terrible play but yet they are 9-4 overall, 8-2 in their last 10. Luck has been clutch in the 4th quarter and the defense has made stops at the absolute right moments.

I expect the Colts to get drilled on Sunday and not be a real player come January. But this year has been an unexpected joyride.

That's the way I like to look at a season. When you've exceeded your expectations, how can you not enjoy it?

But we've had high expectations for so long. For no reason. It seems we base our expectations on time. "We've been in the league for 4 years, we're not an expansion team."

4 years ain't got nothing to do with jack. We probably shouldn't have been an expansion team, but when you took a wrong turn at every junction, you're still an expansion team.

"He's been here 4 years." It took us 4 years to get a starting line-up & there were legitimate reasons for that & some not so legit reasons.

We're sitting here at 11-2, only lost one game on the road. Have not lost two games in a row. Swept 2 of our 3 divison rivals, beat 3 out of 4 division leaders (when we played them), have the best record in the AFC, we control our own destiny for HFThrougout the play-offs with 3 games to go & a lot of us are pissed off because we haven't won the Super Bowl yet.

Go figure.

Don't get me wrong. I hope like hell I'm totally wrong in my prediction, but the prediction still stands. The Colts will have fresh film on what the Pats did to us, and I expect the same if adjustments aren't made.

Six teams had fresh film of what the Packers did to us, and it did them no good at all.
I disagree with the premise, completely. The Colts are not the Patriots, the Colts are the Colts.

If the Patriots win this week & next we won't rest our starters unless the game is out of hand. I don't think the Patriots lose again this year & being that we play at noon, we won't have the luxury of waiting to see what they do week 17.

The smart thing to do then would be to play with every intention of winning that game.

I don't think so. Even with a porous secondary, we were pretty dominant in the Tennessee game. We didn't score in the second half (3 points) but we forced 6 turnovers. For all of Locker's 309 yards passing, he only scored 1 TD for the whole game. We gave up 10 points.

Even in the Patriots game, We played good defense from the 2nd Qtr on. Offensively I see concerns, however I feel good about Newton coming back.

Oh... you were being sarcastic.

The Pats game supposedly was not labelled a must-win game.......but probably should have been. No doubt this one is.

Should the Colts pull the upset Sunday, not only will they punch their ticket to the post-season, but they will also be able to set their sights on sneaking up and stealing the division from Houston. As improbable as that would seem, the math is simple. A Colts win would put them one game behind the Texans with two games to play. It also will very likely set up a winner take all game for the AFC South title in week 17, a scenario Houston wants to avoid. Houston wants to be playing for something in the season finale, but not for the division.

Even if the Texans win Sunday and wrap up the division, the week 17 game will still loom large. The Colts will either still be playing for a spot in the playoffs or to improve their seeding. That something that the Texans would be playing for is home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. Assuming that the Patriots do not lose, which is very likely as they will be favored in their three remaining games, the Texans will not have the luxury of resting their starters. Instead, in order to finish with the top spot in the AFC, they will have to do something that they have never done in franchise history, win in Indianapolis.

Houston is 0-10 in the capital city of Indiana, 0-4 at Lucas Oil Stadium and 0-6 at the old RCA Dome. It has already been a season of firsts for the Texans in this their tenth anniversary season. It will only be fitting that for them to finish first in the conference for the first time, that they will have to beat the Colts on the road for the first time. The picture is clear for the Texans. Beat Indianapolis on Sunday, clinch the division for the second consecutive season. Win in Indianapolis in week 17, clinch home-field advantage and avoid having to return to New England or Denver in the playoffs. When and where the Texans will be playing in January will all come down to two December games vs the Colts. Good job schedule makers, good job.

They are -16 in turnover-diff

By comparison, the Jags are dead even. The Lions are -6, the Titans are -10

The Bears are +13.... the Pats are +24


Last week we saw how our team responded in Matt Schaub's first "play-off atmosphere" game. I think we learned something we'd rather not have.

Today will be Andy Luck's first "play-off atmosphere" game. Popular opinion would have you to believe he'll pass this test with flying colors. I don't believe it.

I think our defense is ready to capitalize on any & all mistakes... the ball is going to bounce our way & if the quoted numbers hold true I predict one thing.
