Happy New Year, Colts fans! But not as entirelyhappy for our loyal and devoted Indianapolis Colts fans, to start 2018 before New Year's Eve, especially here on the Colts Fan Friendly Forum, as our 3-12 Indianapolis Colts will try to conclude their 2017 NFL Season by winning their fourth game with the visiting, and 4-11 Houston Texans. Both the Colts and Texans have suffered injuries to their starting and veteran players, throughout the 2017 NFL season, and reflects on both teams records. As examples, the Texans lost star players J.J. Watt and rookie QB DeShaun Watson, at the time was on his way to earning NFL Offensive Rookie Of the Year accolades. Colts suffered more players to injured reserve, notably Andrew Luck. Luck spent this season rehabilitating in Europe, and he indicates he should and be ready physically to play be training camp. With a win, Colts could finish 2017 with a 4-12 record, last accomplishing during their 1993 NFL season. However, a Colts loss would also finish Indianapolis as they have achieved in consecutive seasons in both 1997 and 1998, before the Colts drafted Peyton Manning, with consecutive 3-13 records. If there is any added incentive in this afternoon's season finale, the Colts by far have the best winning percentage over the Texans over any NFL opponent entering today with a 24 win, and 7 loss record, a winning percentage of .774, and in today's 32nd regular season meeting. Indianapolis also defeated Houston to end their three-game losing streak in their last meeting played at NRG Stadium. Jacoby Brisset threw to touchdowns passes, from 45 yards and 80 yards, to T.Y. Hilton, and Adam Vinitieri also added his two field goals from 22 and 53 yards, plaus his 2 PAT's to help the Colts defeat the Texans back on November 5. Just a temporary setback for our Colts team, and the Colts will try on a clean slate in 2018, to see both return of Andrew Luck and their level of excellence and talent to return to the NFL Playoffs for the first time since January 2014. Thanks for entertaining us, try to win one more game in front of your fans at LOS, and GO COLTS!!!!! .
