In a NFL Wild Card Playoff, we will see Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans.
The Indianapolis Colts are one of the hottest teams in the league and there is no sign of their slow start to the season right now. They won 10 of their last 11 games, including 5 in a row most recently. Andrew Luck is playing lights out at quarterback and he is leading the offense to an average of 27.1 points per game and he has thrown for 4593 yards, 39 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions.
The Houston Texans, on the other side, were one of the hottest teams in football until the end of the regular season came close. They split their last 4 games, despite the fact that Deshaun Watson continues to play very well. He has thrown for 4165 yards, 26 touchdowns, and 9 interceptions so far on the season and he has also rushed for 551 yards. The defensive ends are doing a phenomenal job this season, committing many sacks and turnovers.
The big advantage Houston has, its defensive ends, might not be this big against the Colts’ solid offensive line that allowed just 18 sacks. Luck is one of the best-protected quarterbacks and if he has time to throw the football, he will throw the Texans apart.
