NFL Week 16: Houston Texans Favored Over Indianapolis Colts

According to, the 10-4 Houston Texans are favored to win over the 1-13 Colts in Indianapolis on Thursday night by 7.5 points. The Texans have already locked their place in the playoffs as the AFC South champions but they can still play for a first-round bye. The Ravens currently hold the AFC's No. 2 seed because of their win over the Texans in Week 6. For the Texans to move up into the top-two seeds in the conference, the Ravens need to lose and the Texans need to continue to win.

The Colts, coming off their first win of the season, are obviously not going to be heading to the playoffs in 2011 but there is still pride to play for. And of course, we can't forget about Andrew Luck. With both the Rams and Vikings sitting at 2-12, a win could send Luck to St. Louis or Minnesota. There's no guarantee that the team with the first-overall pick in the 2012 draft would select Luck, but that pick would be worth a lot to a team that wanted him.
