These two teams have already played twice so far this year with the visiting team winning each of the games.
Who would have thought after the Indianapolis Colts terrible start to the season that they would be in the playoffs and one of the teams talked about as a darkhorse to win the Super Bowl.
To answer that question, not many did but here we are and they come into this game as only 2.5 point underdogs, even on the road.
The Colts come into this game hot having won nine of the last ten games with the only loss coming against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
For the Colts it’s all about the offense averaging 27.1 points per game and most of the reason has been Andrew Luck.

So far this year it’s been the Luck show who has thrown for 4593 yards, 39 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. He has done a good job of spreading around the love to all of his receivers.
On the defensive side of the ball the Colts have been decent giving up 21.5 points per game but to win this game it’s going to come down to how well the offense does.
On the other side of this matchup is the Houston Texans who stumbled a bit down the stretch coming into this game with a 2-2 record but they still have to feel good about their chances.
In their last game against the Jaguars they got out to a slow start and weren’t super impressive, but they did do enough in the second half and the defense stepped up winning 20-3.
For the Texans the offense has been good but there is one really big weakness, the offensive line. Deshaun Watson has been hit time after time and if it wasn’t for his running skills he would have probably already been knocked out for the season.

On the defensive side of the ball the Texans are giving up only 19.8 points per game and the pass defense is going to need to be strong against Luck.
They really struggled to slow down luck in the last showdown and that is something that is going to need to be different in this game.

NFL Free Wild Card Score Prediction: Colts 31 – Texans 21
The last time these two teams played it was the Andrew Luck show and I really believe that will be the case in this one.
It will become a high scoring affair and the offensive line won’t keep Watson up long enough. The Colts will win this game by at least 7 points.
