Houston Texans vs Indianapolis Colts
Saturday 12/5/2018 3:55 PM
With the start of the New Year we should not be surprised that Houston is in post season playoffs this weekend. The NFL club had a robust season finishing with an 11-5 record during regular season play.
Injuries and player mishaps could have made for a better outcome say some football analysts.
Houston Texans.com reports:
The Texans clinched their third AFC South division title in four years with a 20-3 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. Houston became the first team to start the season 0-3 and finish as division champions since the 1992 San Diego Chargers.
"It means a lot," head coach Bill O'Brien said after the game. "These guys have worked hard, especially the way we started out. It's a testament to the players in that locker room. They've always hung tough, and to go from 0-3, then go 11-2 in this league, tough to do. Give credit to the players."
In the regular season finale, Houston offense put up 342 net yards of offense (208 passing, 134 rushing). Deshaun Watson completed 25-of-35 for 234 yards and added 13 carries for a team-high 66 yards and a touchdown. DeAndre Hopkins led the Texans with 12 receptions for 147 yards in his seventh 100-yard performance in 2018. Lamar Miller rushed for 56 yards and a touchdown after missing Week 16 with an ankle injury.
"It felt good," Miller said. "I'm happy to be back out there with my teammates. Right now, it's a one-game mentality. It's wins or go home. Every week we must put our best foot forward and we just must finish. That's it."
SBNation.com is reporting this is how the Colts made the Wildcard Playoffs, "The Colts weren’t even supposed to be here in mid-October, when they dropped to 1-5 after a loss to the Jets. But they surprised us, winning nine of their last 10 games behind Luck, who’s likely this season’s Comeback Player of the Year. They completed their total makeover with a postseason berth.
The Colts snagged the last wild card spot because. They beat the Titans."
The Texans will meet Indianapolis Colts at NRG Stadium this Saturday with a 3:55 PM kick off. The game locally can be watched on ABC 13. ESPN nationally.
