The Indianapolis Colts will get things started on the road in a divisional matchup against the Houston Texans at NRG Stadium. Indianapolis is expected to be a top contender this year and Houston is believed to be in the running for the No. 1 overall pick, so this is a game that Indy should win. If the Colts take care of business like they’re expected to, they will start the season 1-0 with an important AFC South win. However, this is the NFL, so the Texans aren’t going to just give them the win, Indy must earn it, and they’ll use everything in their power to complete the challenge.
In reality, Indianapolis should dominate Houston just because that’s what they’ve been doing in the last couple of matchups between the two teams. Last season, the Colts beat the Texans in Week 6 by a score of 31-3 and again in Week 13, 31-0. Since then, Indy has added several pieces to improve its roster. If we are being completely honest, the Texans have a lot going against them once again as they also will be facing a tough Colts defense that has to have something to prove after imploding towards the later stages of the 2021 season.
In what is year two of making the Texans competitive once again, the front office has made chances to improve both the offense and defense of the franchise, even naming defensive-minded Lovie Smith as the new head coach as he was promoted to the position after being the defensive coordinator in 2021. Adding better players to both the offense and defense in 2022 will hopefully not only make the Texans a more competitive football team, but add some more wins along the way as the past two seasons has seen Houston have overall records of 4-13 in 2021 and 4-12 in 2020.
