The Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts kick off the NFL Playoffs at 3:35 p.m. CST today with an intradivisional showdown in a rivalry matchup between two teams that played each other twice this year and never get along with one another at the family reunion. Houston won their first game of the regular season 34-31 against the Colts in overtime, aided by a disastrous Frank Reich fourth down call on Indianapolis’ own side of the 50 yard line. The Colts won the second game of the regular season 24-21; it ended after Jadeveon Clowney jumped offsides and Deshaun Watson never got his chance to lead the good guys on a game-tying or game-winning drive.
Today is the rubber match of the three-game series. Inactives will be posted around 2 p.m., and the first quarter thread will be published at 3:20 p.m. Stick around here until then to talk Texans-Colts.
