It’s rather silly that the Texans and Colts are playing each other for the first time this season in Week 13. I support scheduling divisional match-ups down the stretch, but there’s simply no way division rivals should be squaring off for the first time in December. This absurdity is made all the more profound by the fact that the Texans will be facing the Colts (and everyone else left on the schedule, for that matter) without Will Fuller and Bradley Roby. The Texans squad the Colts will see this weekend as Indianapolis tries to remain in contention for the AFC South title and/or a berth in the NFL Playoffs looks awfully different than the one they would have played in September.
Of course, the September Texans were also led by Bill O’Brien, so perhaps it all evens out. Here’s how to catch Sunday’s game at NRG Stadium:
Kickoff Time: 12 p.m. CST on Sunday, December 6th.
TV Broadcast: CBS.
Radio Broadcast: Sports Radio 610 (AM), 100.3 (FM), and SXM 231. NFL Game Pass also provides an audio streaming service.
Online Streaming: Viewers in the U.S. can use the NFL Mobile app if they have a Verizon subscription. Everyone else can use the NFL Game Pass subscription service to watch the game.
Opponent Blog: Stampede Blue.

NFL Network Replay: To be determined.
In terms of what we'll be doing for the game itself, expect "Countdown To Kickoff" to post at 8 a.m. CST on Sunday. The first open thread for Texans-Colts will go up at 11:45 a.m. CST. We'll add live open threads as necessary during the game, and then we'll have a post-game reaction thread as soon as the game's over.
