The Texans can clinch home field advantage through the AFC playoffs with a win over the Colts, but nothing they’ve done so far indicates they can do that.
That raises serious questions about what they’ll do in the postseason.
The Texans lost two of their previous three, and have looked sloppy so far offensively today. Quarterback Matt Schaub has thrown an interception, and they’ve managed just 123 yards and a pair of field goals in the first half, looking nothing like the team that started the year 11-1.
J.J. Watt also had a half-sack taken away after a replay review, leaving him two sacks short of Michael Strahan’s single-season record going into the final half of the year.
