Off: Carolina, Tampa Bay. Times are Pacific.
Colts (7-4) at Texans (4-7)
Sunday, 10 a.m.
Line: Colts by 3 1/2. O/U: 51.
Deshaun Watson has played well lately, but losing receiver Will Fuller is a killer. The Colts are coming off a blowout loss at home to Tennessee and need to rebound strong. Indy's defense is solid.
Prediction: Colts 27, Texans 18
