Colts vs. Texans wild card weekend: Preview
The Colts get to play a rubber match on Saturday. They play the Houston Texans for the third time this season in the wild card game.
This is a rematch that has a lot riding on it. It isn’t too often that two teams play three games in a season. But that is exactly what is happening between the Colts and the Texans. They are going to face off in Houston in the playoffs, just three weeks after playing in the regular season.
In that most recent regular season matchup, the Colts played a great game in Houston. They broke Houston’s 9 game winning streak and extended the hot play of their own team. Because of that, the Colts might hold a slight edge going into this game.
But it is also the playoffs. That means you can throw the regular season records out the door. There is much more intensity in the playoffs. But these two teams also know each other so well from being in the same division and playing each other twice a year.
There shouldn’t be any surprises between these two. It will simply come down to who is the best team. Both teams have enough film on each other to know how to prepare. It should be a great first game of the playoffs for everyone.
A lot can change between now and Saturday, especially on the injury front. But right now, both teams should come in relatively healthy. That means it should be a really good game for everyone involved.
