    I'll admit I don't. I have absolutely no idea how they'll play...they could dominate and get HFA...or they could repeat this week and go in as the third seed. Guess I'll just continue to try to enjoy the best season we've ever had. It'd be a lot easier though if we were playing better.

    I doubt if they dominate. This team in my opinion is overated. They might squeak out a win because I think the the colts really have nothing to play for. Their playoff seeding looks to be locked at the 5th spot. The texans have just looked flat the second half of the season. They struggle against the bad teams and get blown out against the good teams.

    a win is more important to us, the colts have already clinched and will start th eplayoffs on the road. i would think they might use the week to rest..

    Three weeks ago I predicted a split with Indy and a loss to minny.

    I'll stick with that.

    This team will go s the offense goes. Our offense has been on the skid for 3 weeks. 1 td in 8 qtrs is atrocious. We sound like the jets

    the o line needs to step it up for this game. Even duane brown is looking off

    All I know is that Gary Kubiak and Matt Schaub will be on our side... So anything is possible.

    I'll take it a step further. The Colts don't want to win. If they lose, they get to play the Texans in the 2nd round and not the Broncos.

    Stumbled into the playoffs last year. Same this year.

    Unless they get to the AFC Championship Game, this isn't the best season we have ever had.

    why do you think colts wont try? they have alot to play for im sure they would love to knock there rivals off first seed. And im pretty sure the way texans are playing they would rather face them in wild card then the broncos. i was rooting for texans but two field goals on offense and over 10 penaltys at key moments..but kudos to the defense who made peterson look average.. if the texans offense and defense can ever play a complete game they could win the super bowl... but i beleive neither the colts or texans making it far this year..

    The Colts are locked into the #5 seed. Nothing can change their seeding. Houston is fighting for the #1 seed and Home Field Advantage. I'm not saying Indianapolis won't try but one team actually has something to play for next week while the other can rest their starters.

    And that's awesome but they don't need the win. No matter the outcome they will be playing in Baltimore for the Wild-Card round. They might as well rest some starters next week like Houston did last year against Tennessee.

    The Colts coach is coming back. Teams always play great when they have some type of adversity. And they're at home so it should be a crazy crowd.

    If we play like we can we'll win but only if the offense remembers how to score.

    They should but you never know with devisional games..it would be awesome for texans to win and id like to see them do good but if they play like they played last few weeks. I mean even the dolphins are playing better...whatever is causing this slump they better fix..for once it wasnt the coaching staff kubiak played good plays players didnt excute..and wade made peterson look avearage i was impressed with the defense.

    Jeez.

    Coach returns, playing inspired football, at home vs division rival...better hope they rest their starters cause I think theyd pull it out.

    I dont think its meaningless @ all to indy tbh. This would be an insane confidence builder for them if they beat Houston, and that upon coaches return is exactly the type of momentum they wanna enter playoffs with.
    Btw if indy loses and bungles win does indy lose 5 seed? If so playing is a nobrainer
    (One, you always want potential for home game. Two...as is, 6 seed plays @ Foxboro. I think @ Baltimore is much more appealing)

    I could be wrong tho-they could opt to rest. Please dont lol.

    Talk about reshaping afc picture..if Houston loses and pats n Denver pull out easy wins...yikes.

    (I wont lie, as pats fan, I hate the 3 seed. No bye week plus the prospect of @ denver in 2nd round..hate it.

    They're 2-0 after a loss. I expect them to play well and get a W the way they did after losses to GB and NE. They really sucked today and Kubes and MS looked really clueless the whole game.
