This is a meaningless game, plain and simple.
Indianapolis is at home so you would think they try and put on a good show for their fans. I guess.
It was no big shock that the Texans were a no show against Pittsburgh last week.
The way they gave up though you might think that the brass could be in real trouble.
You can give the Texans a but of a pass given they were down to their third string quarterback Tyler Yates.
Yates only put the ball in the air 16 times as the Texans were quite effective on the ground. He threw one pick and the less he is asked to do the better.
Alfred Blue was nearly the entire offense with 108 yardson just 16 carries. Lamar Miller was effective too chipping in another 55 on the ground.
DeAndre Hopkins was the only Texan to cathch more than one pass last week. Again Yates is not going to scare many defenses.
Am I alone in thinking that Braxton Miller was going to become something. He has been a total zero in the NFL so far.
The Texans defense is very depleted as the season comes to a close. Still they might look half decent against a team as hapless as Indianapolis.
They did do a good job bottling up Le’Veon Bell and the running game though. They should be able to make the Colts one dimensional which will help.
When they are healthy they can play things pretty straight up with without their stars they need to gamble more. In this one the wont get burned too much.
It was more of the same from Indianapolis last week. They might have played spoiler but they lost rather meekly against Baltimore. Though they did cover a big spread.
The offense was fairly ineffectual in the loss with less than 300 total yards. They didn’t make big mistakes but they were not able to get anything going.
I like QB Jacoby Brissett. He did not complete 50% of his passes last week but in most games he has been the best thing about this Colts team.
He rediscovered TY Hilton who had 100 yards receiving for just the fourth time this season. He is dangerous enough to turn the game in a situation like this.
The Colts have pathetic defensive personnel but they played OK against Baltimore. The Ravens only accumulated 323 yards of offense led by Joe Flacco.
Indianapolis is messy in lots of areas but until they get some real defensive playmakers it is hard to expect too much on this side of the ball. Few teams can disrupt on scheme alone.

I am not even sure why on this pick. More a fade of the Colts who have nothing.
NFL Free Week 17 Score Prediction: Houston 21 – Indianapolis 16
I think the Texans will be able move the ball and get it into the end zone.
Even though both defenses are pretty bad I am not expecting a high total. The offenses are not that great.
