    I should know this but I'm not sure.

    What is the Colts record at home against AFC South opponents since 2002 when the new AFC South came to be?

    2002: 2-1 (loss to Tenn)
    2003: 3-0
    2004: 2-1 (loss to Jax)
    2005: 3-0
    2006: 3-0
    2007: 1-0 (have yet to play Hou and Tenn at home)

    looks like they are 14-2 with two games left at home against the AFC South. you might want to double check what I found though...

    As Bob Dylan once said "When you've got nothin', you've got nothing to lose." Either that or "when you've muffin's you've got muffins to chew." If you're on the Texans' roster you KNOW that everyone is picking the other guy to beat you like a drum. Basically you have NOTHING to lose so play with reckless abandon. The Colts are going to take this game as a gimme The Texans should come out and lay the smack down on Manning and bump the #uck out of Marvin Harrison within five of the line of scrimmage. Hit them fast and hard, play the ball rather than the receiver, tackle the backs with a MINIMAL of three guys and and try to beat them into the ground when ya do. If you don't win the score will be relatively close, if you do win you'll send a message to every team that will play you next season.

    Colts are an extremely well coached team with a solid corpse of veteran players. Factor in that we beat them at the end of last year, they barely beat us earlier this year without our best player, and that this is a division rival....they aren't thinking this is a gimme and aren't looking past us.

    Are we of the same level as the Colts, no. But we are a much improved team and other teams are taking notice and saying that this isn't the same Texans. The colts have noticed and will be ready. I'm hoping for a good game with a Victory to the traveling team.

    In the Dungy era, the Colts are 1-4 on Week 16.

    Just saying...

    A 4-10 team beat the eventual Super Bowl Champions last season, so I have no reason to doubt our guys this year. It will not be easy, but we are on a mission and will treat these last two games like it's our playoffs. The Colts, on the other hand, have the 2 seed wrapped up and are playing just to stay in shape, but do not want to risk injury so they stay healthy for the playoffs.

    I hope our guys punch them in the mouth and the Colts never see it coming. I can only dream of the atmosphere at Reliant against the Jags if our boys are coming home 8-7, 3 game winning streak, and beating the Colts on the road.
