It seems to be pretty much a clean sweep for the Colts. Over at Tallysight, 96% of analysts are siding with the Colts in this matchup.

This is a game the Colts should win. Even with their issues with an inconsistent pass rush and injuries to key positions, the Colts have to prove they can overcome that against the Texans.

If somehow the Texans wind up with an upset at Lucas Oil Stadium, serious questions will be raised about the direction of the organization.
