2018 Week 14: Colts vs. Texans Second Half Open Thread — Colts lead 17 - 7

Frank Reich has the Indianapolis Colts offense playing at a blinding pace. The Texans defense is struggling to keep up and has given up 17 points on three straight drives. All of the momentum is in Indy’s favor heading into the half. The defense has been doing what it needs to do, harassing Deshaun Watson and shutting down Houston’s running game.

Now it is up to the Colts to do something they’ve only been able to do one time this season. Indy has to keep the momentum going. Closing out...

Colts look to disrupt playoff chase against Houston

The last time the Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts faced off was in week four, and the Texans were in a much different place. Beginning the season 0-3, Houston edged the Colts 37-34 and haven’t lost a game since.

“We are locked in on Houston, ready to go, Colts head coach Frank Reich said on Wednesday. “This is a hot team, we will be in a hostile environment against a team that’s playing very good football.”

Houston will feature a fully healthy J.J. Watt, who is currently...

Keys to the Game: Indianapolis Colts vs. Houston Texans

This could be it. The Indianapolis Colts have their backs against the wall against a very hot Houston Texans team that continues to outperform expectations. A disappointing loss a week ago in Jacksonville was a big blow to Indy’s playoff hopes and a consecutive loss in Houston could very well seal the deal.

In the last meeting, Andrew Luck and the offense got out to a slow start. The Texans entered half time with a 21 - 10 lead and it took two fourth quarter touchdowns for the Colts to...

2018 Week 14: Indianapolis Colts vs. Houston Texans Open Thread

The 6-6 Indianapolis Colts travel to Houston to face off against the 9-3 Texans. At 6-6, Indianapolis is a game out of the wildcard race in the AFC. After the Titans’ Thursday night win over the Jaguars, the Colts need to win to pull even in the division.

The only playoff spot that looks shaky at this point is owned by the Baltimore Ravens. A win in Houston and Baltimore loss in Kansas City would go a long way to staying in the hunt. A loss and a surprise Baltimore against the Chiefs...

Colts-Texans announce Week 14 inactives

The Indianapolis Colts have had a few weeks this season in which they’ve had lengthy injury reports. Week 14 just may be one of the largest, though, that the Colts have sported all year.

With four already being ruled out (Mo Alie-Cox, Dontrelle Inman, Ryan Kelly, Mike Mitchell) earlier in the week, and several being listed as questionable, the Colts are again heading into an AFC South matchup short-handed.

Scouting Notebook: First Round Risers + a new Colts Mock Draft

These few players have risen quite noticeably this college football season.

The NFL Draft is an all year long business nowadays. With many sites churning out mock drafts for 2021 and 2022 already, we like to assume that we have a good base knowledge of who will be first round picks years in advance. Sometimes though, there are late bloomers and risers that fly up draft boards with strong seasons and propel themselves into first round players without anyone really noticing until draft time....

Colts waive TE Clive Walford

Clive Walford‘s time with the Colts has come to an end. On Friday, the Colts waived the tight end and promoted wide receiver Daurice Fountain from the practice squad to the 53-man roster. Walford, 27, joined the Colts in late November after the loss of Jack Doyle. While Eric Ebron has been heavily involved in the Colts offense, Walford did not see any snaps at tight end during his brief stint in Indianapolis. Walford’s only career action came with the Raiders, where he made 70 catches...

The biggest fantasy football disappointments from the 2018 season

As much as fantasy football is about finding the right waiver wire pickups throughout the season, drafting is equally important. Owners that draft well don’t need to add as many free agents. While selecting the right sleepers is key, so is hitting on the top-round picks. Players that go early in drafts can carry entire fantasy teams for weeks at a time, and owners that select a first or second-round bust will have a much tougher time winning a championship. With that in mind, here are the...

T.Y. Hilton, Eric Ebron out of practice for second straight day

The Colts practiced without wide receiver T.Y. Hilton last Wednesday, but he returned to work the next day and played against the Jaguars in last Sunday’s loss.
