Colts vs. Texans: Game time, TV schedule, injury updates and more

Houston hosts Indianapolis with the opportunity to clinch the AFC South

The AFC South champion could be crowned Sunday when Indianapolis visits Reliant Stadium to play Houston. With a Texans victory, the division title would be theirs and Houston would be in the driver's seat for a first-round bye. However, a Colts victory would keep them in the hunt, with a chance to win the division themselves when they play the Texans again in Week 17.

The Texans are coming off a drubbing by the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football, with their 42-14 loss just their second on the season. Matt Schaub failed to throw a touchdown for the first time since Week 7 and Arian Foster ran for just 46 yards. Despite the loss, the Texans have still won six of their last seven games and hold the best record in the AFC. The return of Ben Tate should help an already dominant running game, which will continue to take pressure off their play-action reliant passing game.

Andrew Luck has the Colts rolling. Indy has won seven of their last eight to make one of the most surprising playoff pushes in recent memory. The last two weeks have seen the Colts squeak out wins against the Lions and Titans, with the win over Detroit coming on the last play of the game. The Colts are seventh in the league in total offense, trailing the sixth-place Texans by just two yards per game.

The Colts and Texans have won every AFC South title since 2003 except one, when the Titans pulled it out in 2008.
