NFL schedule 2012: Texans host the Colts in Week 15

Ronald Martinez

The Texans will look to recover their status as an elite AFC team against division-rival Indy on Sunday

In the final three weeks of the season, AFC South contenders Houston and Indianapolis will play each other twice. The first games comes on Sunday in Houston, where the Colts will visit the division-leading Texans at Reliant Stadium. The Texans will return the favor in Week 17 when they travel to Lucas Oil Stadium.

The Texans were embarrassed on Monday night, losing 42-14 to the New England Patriots. Matt Schaub failed to throw a touchdown pass for the first time since Week 7 and Arian Foster never going going -- gaining 46 yards on 15 carries. Despite the loss, Houston is 11-2 has still won six of its last seven games, including wins over Baltimore and Chicago.

The Colts come into town red-hot, having won seven of their last eight games to improve to 9-4 and become a mortal lock for a playoff spot. But their recent surge -- and the upcoming head-to-head games - have the Colts dreaming of an AFC South title. With their only non-Texan opponent being the lonely Chiefs, Indianapolis appears to be in control of their own destiny.
