The Houston Texans and the Indianapolis Colts faced off against one another in a Week 18 matchup that had a lot on the line. The winner clinched a playoff spot while the loser is eliminated from playoff contention. The game got off to a great start as quarterback CJ Stroud threw a 75-yard touchdown pass to Nico Collins on their first offensive play and never trailed again.
The Houston Texans had trouble against Jonathan Taylor, but had a huge game as their team dominated a majority of the time. The Texans did well and picked up a 23-19 road win to clinch the playoff spot and rookie quarterback CJ Stroud and first-year head coach Demeco Ryans should be praised. This Texans team has done an outstanding job and deserve to celebrate their success tonight before preparing to see who they face in the Wild Card Round.
The Texans still do not know if they will be on the road or home for the AFC Wild Card Round as it depends on Sunday’s game between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Tennessee Titans. If the Jaguars win, they will be AFC South Champions but if they lose, the Houston Texans will get the divisional crown.
How far can the Houston Texans go in the AFC Playoffs?
While we still do not know who the Houston Texans will be facing in the AFC Wild Card Round or even their seeding in the playoffs, they are going to be a scary team to go up against for any team. This franchise were brutal a year ago and competed for the top pick and now made the playoffs.
If they are able to be at home and are the AFC South division champions, what wild card team would want to go up against a young and hungry team? If they are on the road, the Texans are going to be a force to be reckoned with. They have a stellar defense and an outstanding offense so no matter what the seeding says, they can compete with any team in the AFC.
It will be a lot of fun to see this young Houston Texans team in the NFL playoffs for the world to see.
