GAME RELEASE: COLTS VS. TEXANS

Posted Dec 11, 2012

Colts try to clinch playoff berth

The Colts (9-4) will head south for the first of two divisional matchups with the Houston Texans (11-2) in the final three weeks of the season. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. EST at Reliant
Stadium.

Although there are a few scenarios in which the Colts could clinch a playoff berth this weekend, the surest way would be with a win. With a victory in Houston, the Colts would clinch at least a Wild Card spot, record their 12th 10-win season in the last 14 years and remain a contender for the AFC South crown.

Last week, the Colts picked up another come-from-behind victory over the Tennessee Titans and improved their record in one-possession games to 8-1. Trailing 20-7 at halftime, Indianapolis outscored Tennessee, 20-3, over the final two quarters. RB-Delone Carter scored on a one-yard run, topping off a 14-play, 80-yard drive to start the second half. CB Cassius Vaughn then scored on a three-yard interception return for a touchdown after P-Pat McAfee pinned the Titans on their own one-yard line.

The Texans are coming off their second loss of the season, falling to the New England Patriots, 42-14, on Monday Night Football. QB-Tom Brady threw for four touchdowns and no interceptions to lead the Patriots past the Texans. RB-Arian Foster found the end zone in the game, but was held to 46 rushing yards, his third-lowest output of the season. QB Matt Schaub finished the day 19-of-32 for 232 yards and an interception for a quarterback rating of 68.8.
