Hi, Colts fans! Our Indianapolis Colts are in the international spotlight as they are at Southeast Texas to play the defending 2015 AFC South Champions, and currently the AFC South leading Houston Texans, for the first time in the 2016 NFL regular season, and also in the 29th all-time meeting between the teams. A win by the Colts tonight would even their record at 3-3 after six games.
Colts are appearing in their 24th regular season appearance on Sunday Night Football entering tonight with their 14 wins and 9 losses after 23 games, while the Texans are appearing in their fifth appearance on SNF, entering with a 1-4 record.
Indianapolis has still by far the most dominence in a series rivalry over one opponent with the Houston Texans, since the Colts and the Texans began their divisonal rivalry in the AFC South, since the NFL divisonal relignment began in 2002. Colts defeated the Texans in the first 15 out of 16 games through 2010. However, the Texans won 4 out of the next 10 regular season games since.
Texans defeated our Colts 16-10 in both teams last meeting played at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building) back on December 20, 2015. Indianapolis scored the first 10 points of the game with an 11-yard pass from Matt Hasselbeck to Donte Moncrief, followed by Adam Vinatieri's 29-yard field goal. However, an 8-yard TD pass from Brandon Weeden to Jaelin Strong, along wth three field goals by Nick Novak from 22. 46, and 32 yards, gave Houston, the 16-10 victory over the Colts. The Texans win was their first ever regular season win in 13 seasons in Indianapolis, on their way to win their second AFC South Title.
