Last week, the Indianapolis Colts clinched a playoff spot by taking down the Kansas City Chiefs, 20-14.  Heading into Week 17, Indy was locked into the 5th seed in the playoffs.  They stood to gain nothing from beating the Texans Sunday.  But that's exactly what the Colts did, in convincing fashion nonetheless.

Indianapolis will travel to take on Baltimore next week.  The Texans will host the Cincinnati Bengals.

In this article, I'll tell you what we learned from this game by tackling 5 tough questions:

  • Are the Texans a threat in the postseason?
  • Do the Colts deserve a playoff spot?
  • Can the Colts win a playoff game?
  • Will Matt Schaub win a Super Bowl?
  • Is Chuck Pagano the NFL Coach of the Year?
