NFL schedule 2012: Texans could clinch AFC No. 1 seed vs. Colts

The Houston Texans could clinch homefield advantage throughout the playoffs with a win against the Indianapolis Colts.

USA TODAY Sports

The Houston Texans could clinch home field advantage throughout the playoffs when they hit the road to take on Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts in an AFC South match-up.

At 12-3, the Texans currently hold the top spot in the AFC, holding the tiebreaker over the Denver Broncos. All the Texans have to do is beat the 10-5 Colts and the road to the Super Bowl will have to go through Reliant Stadium. If the Texans lose, the Broncos would be able to clinch the No. 1 overall seed if they defeat the 2-13 Kansas City Chiefs.

In other important games around the league, the NFC East will be decided on the final game of the regular season when the Dallas Cowboys take on the Washington Redskins in a winner-take-all match-up.

The full Week 17 slate is below. All times are Eastern.

Sunday, Dec. 30
