Wild Card Weekend - Colts @ Texans

Fri Jan 04, 2019 11:05 am

I think the Colts were the last team anyone in the AFC wanted to see get into the post season. Luck is healthy, the Colts finished the regular season strong, and I think they are balanced enough to make it to the AFC Championship.

I'm picking the Colts in this one. The Texans running game and offensive line haven't played well recently. If the Colts can control the clock, keep Watson in the pocket, and limit Hopkins as best they can...they should win a close one.

Texans look great one week and like crap the next. Indy has a surprisingly good defense this year. I'm taking the Colts

Colts. Luck finally looks like his old self, and he has that team clicking on all cylinders. They are going to be a tough out in the playoffs.

Colts taking it to the Texans, and I can't say I'm surprised.

Watson looks like he's feeling the pressure. He's just not executing on some of his passes, and he's succumbing to the pas rush the Colts have dialed up to not allow him to just sit back there.

the pressure is what killed him on that 4th and goal play ... he had a lane to run for the first down but didn't even look for it to get that 1 yard ... throw into the dirt into the endzone instead

credit the Colts defense for that and for knocking him off his game
