The Texans will get a Wild Card rematch against Andrew Luck and the Colts, who beat the Texans by 3 in Houston just a few weeks ago. Ironically, the Texans won at the Colts in overtime back in September, and that started their 9-game win streak, which was ended by the aforementioned 3-point loss. The Texans will have home field for this one as well on Saturday at 4:30 EST, 1:30 PST, on ABC or ESPN.

DW4 is just the 3rd player in NFL history to pass for 4,000 yards and rush for 500 yards in a season, and he's remarkably done so in his first full season after coming off a torn ACL! Watson is still the only player in college football history with 4,000 passing yards and 1,000 rushing yards in a season, which he did in 2015. Watson should have won back-to-back Heisman Trophies.

Fellow Tiger Nuk Hopkins has had another sensational Pro Bowl season with 115 catches for 1,527 yards and 11 touchdowns. He had a touchdown catch in each of the two games against the Colts this season.
