(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Colts will try to improve to 8 and 0 Sunday when they face their closest rivals in the AFC South, the Houston Texans.
The Colts are 13 and 1 all-time against the Texans since Houston joined the NFL in 2002 and have never lost to the Texans in Indianapolis.
The Horseshoes have won the last four games in the series with Houston's only win coming on Christmas Eve, 2006 at Reliant Stadium.
That was the Colts' final loss of the 2006 season as the team went on to win Super Bowl 41.
The Texans are 5 and 3 and have won their last three games.
Houston is two games over .500 for the first time in the eight-year history of the franchise.
