If that happens & we also lose out to finish 11-5 wouldn't they win the division & the bye since they beat us twice?
The scenario you questioned included a Texans victory as well as the Colt loss. If that happens, the worst the Texans can do would be 12-4. But see there - you've now indirectly answered your own original question about why a Titan win over Indy would help us clinch a first round bye.
