The Texans are in the race for both an AFC South title and a Wild Card bid as we head into Week 18. If you are a Texans fan, you’ll have a few games you’ll be paying attention to as they look to improve their chances of a playoff berth.
Texans vs. Colts
This is a must-win week for the Texans. If they beat the Colts, they are guaranteed a spot in the playoffs. Houston lost to the Colts earlier this season when Indy QB Anthony Richardson was still healthy. Indianapolis enters as a 1-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook.
Jaguars vs. Titans
If the Texans win, this game will determine where they end up seeded. A Titans win would give the Texans the AFC South title and the fourth seed, while a Jaguars win would send Houston into the Wild Card mix. The Jaguars are 5-point favorites.
