Texans want to build momentum going into playoffs

HOUSTON (AP) - The Houston Texans need a win this weekend at Indianapolis to secure a bye and home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs.

They also want to build some momentum instead of limping into the postseason after having lost 2 of their last three games. Houston had a chance to secure home-field advantage with a win last week. But had its worst offensive performance of the season in a 23-6 loss to the Vikings.

Veteran linebacker Bradie James says, "it's crucial" for Houston to play well this week. He added that players spent the holiday week frowning because they were unhappy with how they played against Minnesota.
