Colts close regular season with Texans.

The Colts (10-5) will finish up regular season play when they host the Houston Texans (12-3) at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. EST.

The Colts welcomed Head Coach Chuck Pagano back on Monday after being away from the team for the past 12 games since he was diagnosed with leukemia during the Colts bye week.

In his place, Offensive Coordinator Bruce Arians continued what Coach Pagano had started and led the Colts to a 9-3 record and a return to the playoffs.

Last week, Indianapolis clinched a playoff berth and notched another 10-win season by defeating the Kansas City Chiefs, 20-13, at Arrowhead Stadium. Quarterback Andrew Luck threw for 205 passing yards in the game, bringing his season total to 4,183 yards, which breaks the previous NFL rookie record set by Cam Newton (4,051) in 2011. Cornerback Darius Butler recorded his team-leading fourth interception of the season and second returned for a touchdown when he picked off quarterback Brady Quinn on the Chiefs first drive of the game.

The Texans are coming off a 23-6 loss to the Minnesota Vikings last week at Reliant Stadium. Houston remains the top seed in the AFC, needing a win on Sunday to guarantee home field advantage throughout the playoffs. The Texans have not won in Indianapolis though, posting an 0-10 road record against the Colts since the franchise began in 2002.
