What to Know
Indianapolis won both of their matches against Houston last season (24-21 and 21-7) and is aiming for the same result on Sunday. Indianapolis will take on Houston at 1 p.m. ET at Lucas Oil Stadium after a week off. The Colts are expected to win — but not by much — so they will need to come into the contest prepared for a fight.
Indianapolis didn’t have too much breathing room in their game with Kansas City two weeks ago, but they still walked away with a 19-13 victory. RB Marlon Mack was the offensive standout of the matchup for Indianapolis, as he picked up 132 yards on the ground on 29 carries. Mack’s performance made up for a slower contest against Oakland three weeks ago.
Meanwhile, Houston lost to Kansas City when the teams last met two seasons ago, but they didn’t allow Kansas City the same satisfaction this time around. Houston walked away with a 31-24 win. The squad ran away with 23 points in the first half and mostly just sat on those in the second to pick up the win.
Their wins bumped Indianapolis to 3-2 and Houston to 4-2. A couple offensive stats to keep an eye on: The Colts rank fourth in the league when it comes to rushing yards per game, with 142 on average. The Texans have displayed some offensive firepower of their own as they come into the contest boasting the fourth most overall touchdowns in the league at 20. We’ll find out if either of these strengths ends up making the difference in the contest.
