GAME RELEASE : Houston Texans @ Indianapolis Colts (Week 17)

Colts host Texans in 2017 regular season finale


The Indianapolis Colts will host the Houston Texans in the 2017 regular season finale. The game time is set for 1:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, Dec. 31, at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The contest will mark the 32nd all-time regular season meeting between the teams, with the Colts leading the series, 24-7. Indianapolis defeated the Texans in a Week 9 matchup in Houston, 20-14.

Last week, the Colts played the Ravens in Baltimore and were defeated 23-16.

Baltimore held a 10-0 lead early in the second quarter before quarterback Jacoby Brissett completed a 14-yard touchdown pass to running back Frank Gore.

The Colts and Ravens then traded two field goals each and Baltimore held a 16-13 advantage in the fourth quarter. The Ravens padded their lead after a touchdown and led Indianapolis 23-13.

Kicker Adam Vinatieri connected on his third field goal of the day with 4:33 left in regulation to bring the score to 23-16.

On the ensuing Baltimore offensive series, the Colts defense was able to force a punt, which was blocked by inside linebacker Anthony Walker and recovered by outside linebacker Tarell Basham. The play resulted in Indianapolis possessing the ball at the Ravens 27-yard line.

Brissett drove the offense down to the Baltimore 17-yard line, but on fourth-and-10 the Colts were unable to convert the first down and the Ravens would seal the victory.

Defensively, cornerback Kenny Moore II and inside linebacker Antonio Morrison led all players with nine tackles each.
