The 2023–24 regular campaign will conclude with the Indianapolis Colts hosting the Houston Texans in a divisional matchup. On the Week 18 schedule, this is among the most important games. While the loser is sent home, the winner advances to the playoffs. In addition, in the event that the Jacksonville Jaguars falls against the Tennessee Titans in Nashville on Sunday afternoon, the victor of this game will also have an opportunity to capture the AFC South Division.
Similar to the Texans, the Colts are certain that they will advance to the postseason should they win this match. Although it wasn’t the most visually appealing game last Sunday, the Colts managed to defeat the Las Vegas Raiders 23–20. Even though they entered the game late, they were still able to win three points. Gardner Minshew gained 224 yards including a touchdown on 15 of his 23 completions. Football’s attack is ranked tenth, while the defense has struggled, allowing 24.5 points per contest. The defense must come up with an approach to get rolling in this game. Minshiew has surrendered 3,164 yards, 15 scores, including 9 interceptions on the season. Another crucial aspect of this game will be minimizing turnovers.
Making the playoffs is not too difficult for the Texans. After prevailing only 3 matches in the previous season, they are aware that if they succeed in winning this one, they will advance to the postseason. When the Texans played the Tennessee Titans in their most recent game, they won 26–3. With 24 of his 32 throws completed for 213 yards, 1 score, and no interceptions, CJ Stroud enjoyed another excellent day. What was even more amazing was the defense’s three-point shooting percentage. Houston’s defense allows 20.9 points per contest this season, while their offense averages 22.1 points. They are giving up the fewest points in the NFL in the second quarter, 4.255.
