Thursday Night Football, Week 12: Colts and Texans play high-leverage game in AFC South

This evening, a division title might be all but settled.

Tonight’s game is a huge one in the AFC South. The lead in the division is on the line, as a pair of 6-4 teams square off in a burgeoning rivalry. The Indianapolis Colts are in Texas to play the Houston Texans with the two teams locked up for the division lead.

Indy currently holds the tiebreaker between the two teams on the strength of a 30-23 victory in week seven. Another Colts win would put them a game up on Houston in addition to the head-to-head sweep, largely closing the door on Houston’s division title hopes. Alternately, Houston winning would be a notable blow, and one that could give them a tiebreaker as well following a split of the teams’ two matchups.

That makes this likely the highest-leverage game in week 12, in terms of the teams’ playoff chances on the line. Tune in tonight to see who takes a strong hold over the AFC South.
