    Houston has already clinched their division. Will they lay down or (since it's a Thursday nite TV game) will they play it tough?
    They still have Home Field Advantage/Bye Week to play for so yes they need this win.

    Even if everything were locked up I would imagine that Houston would play to their full strength just to take it to the Colts after we have always took it to them for the most part. Our defense played well Sunday but this is a short time for recovery and this Houston team can run the ball very well. I hope our defense can keep it close. On the Luck situation I have to believe like coach Dungy said that they should trade the pick to someone who is willing to offer a ton of assets in draft picks and players to take a chance by loading up one more time to help Peyton make a chase for another ring. I think we can move a few spots down and still get the QB of the future and get more assets to make our team much better. I think Peyton deserves that much for what he has done for the colt's organization and the Indy community.

    The $170+ million he's been paid so far isn't good enough ??

    It's not the Indianapolis Mannings. It's the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts will still be here long after Manning is gone. The organization & community deserve doing what's best for the long term.

    Caldwell might have to blow that chance just to keep his job. Wouldn't that be a double whammy.

    Barkley will NOT enter the 2012 draft. One less thing to debate, but with one less qb prospect, that first pick is more valuable.

    According to NFL.com via STATS, the Colts will clinch the #1 pick with a loss tonight.

    After further review, the Colts would claim the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft if they lose Thursday night to the Houston Texans.

    Because of a calculation mistake by STATS, it originally was reported that the Colts could fall no lower than the No. 2 pick, based on numerous scenarios. However, after recalculations, it was discovered that should the Colts lose to the Texans, their best possible strength of schedule would be .5430, which still would be lower than the Minnesota Vikings’ worst possible strength of schedule of .5469

    The Colts entered the game 1-13. The other two teams also in the mix for the No. 1 pick — the Vikings and Rams — are 2-12.

    You can watch the Colts-Texans game, live from Indianapolis’ Lucas Oil Stadium, on NFL Network. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:20 p.m. ET.

    Obviously, last night's "win" was a crushing loss in the Race for Luck. Though the Colts are still currently #1 by virtue of tiebreakers, they have the weakest remaining opponent amongst the contenders. A drop all the way to #3 is a very real possibility. We need to pull for a Rams AND a Vikings victory at all costs.

    #1 2-13, 122 wins (#3 SOS)
    #2 2-12, 127 wins (#2 SOS)
    #3 2-12, 130 wins (#1 SOS)

    If the Colts lose, they will have the #1 pick regardless of what Minnesota and StL do. They own the SOS tie breaker against both of them.

    Yes, but do you really believe they'll lose that game?

    Colts fans find themselves in a strange position going into the final week of the season. In order to secure the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft they need a loss in the final game of the year against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Colts unexpected two game winning streak has now put them in a tie with the St. Louis Rams and Minnesota Vikings for the worst record in the NFL. The tiebreaker is strength of schedule. In the Colts' case, the lower the strength of schedule, the better.


    The Colts still have the lowest strength of schedule among the three teams. Indianapolis' strength of schedule is .547, while Minnesota's is .566 and St. Louis' is .587. An Indianapolis loss tot he Jaguars would be enough to secure the No. 1 overall pick, and likely Andrew Luck. With Jim Irsay's reiteration that Peyton Manning would play in Indianapolis if healthy next year it is not known what the Colts would do with Luck if they get him.

    Just lose, baby.

    I don't know. I wouldn't call last night "winning" either. I doubt the Colts will have that many tries in the red zone next week.

    I can see Minnesota winning one of their final two, very possibly today, but the Rams look atrocious.

    Minnesota lost Peterson, and Ponder.

    Peterson looked nasty. Knees aren't meant to bend that way.

    Two missed field goals for the Rams, including a chip-shot. This could be a one-possession game right now.

    Yep, that looked nasty but he didn't look to worry on the golf car so who knows?

    Regarding the game I hope they keep this lead so we don't have to worry about them next week.

    No doubt, no way they win another game this year.


    By the way, whoever decided to play Peterson in this meaningless games should get fired today, stupid decision.
