INDIANAPOLIS – The closest division race in football has three teams tied for first place with the season's final quarter here.

The Colts, Texans and Titans are now all tied for the AFC South lead, with matching 6-6 records.

With four games remaining for each team, the Colts do have control of their playoff fate.

Week 13 led to the jumbled AFC South picture.

A month after the Colts went to Lambeau Field and left with a victory, they got another "win" there last Sunday.

Green Bay's 21-13 victory over the Texans pushed Houston down to .500 for the first time all season.

The Colts followed that up with a 41-10 blowout win over the Jets on Monday Night Football.

That sets up a massive Week 14 tilt in Indianapolis between the Colts and Texans.

Sunday's game at Lucas Oil Stadium between the Colts and Texans will decide who is the definite division favorite for the rest of the season. Houston has the early lead in head-to-head tiebreakers with Indianapolis.

Here's a look at the remaining schedules for the Colts, Texans and Titans:

  • Colts (6-6): Texans (6-6), at Vikings (6-6), at Raiders (10-2), Jaguars (2-10)
  • Texans (6-6): at Colts (6-6), Jaguars (2-10), Bengals (4-7-1), at Titans (6-6)
  • Titans (6-6): Broncos (8-4), at Chiefs (9-3), at Jaguars (2-10), Texans (6-6)
