I knew deep down that the Indianapolis Colts weren't going to win their game against the Houston Texans last night.
With that said, I stayed hopeful that they would.
I know there are still weeks to go before the end of the season, but - to me - last night was the division decider.
The Texans now sit at the the top of the AFC South at 7-4 following last night's 20-17 victory. The Colts are below - in second place - with six wins out of eleven games.
Indy isn't out of it yet, though. There's still a chance to make the playoffs via a wild card spot. With that said, I've looked at the schedule and there are winnable games coming up.
But there are also ones that can be lost. And that's what has me worried. Last night's result does not put the team on the good foot moving forward.
