The Houston Texans opened as 2.5-point home favorites against the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Wild Card Game. The Texans and Colts last met in Week 14, when Indianapolis snapped Houston’s nine-win streak with a 24-21 win on the road.

The Texans have never advanced past the divisional round. (The franchise’s first season was in 2002.)

Meanwhile, the Colts are back in the playoffs for the first time since 2014, ending their longest playoff drought since missing the postseason from 1988-1994.
