Houston meet the Vikings

December 22, 2012 16:32:09 UK

The Houston Texans host the Minnesota Vikings at the Reliant Stadium on Sunday knowing that a victory will give them home field throughout the post season.

Tom Brady's Patriots beat Houston last week.

Last week Houston bounced back from a poor performance against the New England Patriots to defeat the Indianapolis Colts 29-17.

Arian Foster rushed for 165 yards on 27 carries to snap the visitors' three-game winning streak and the two teams will play again in Week 17 of the season.

First, the Colts can clinch a playoff place when they travel to Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City to play the Chiefs.

Two games ahead of the Pittsburgh Steelers with two weeks remaining in the regular season, Indianapolis will also qualify for the post-season if the Cincinnati Bengals win at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.

The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without Maurice Jones-Drew against the New England Patriots after the running back was ruled out with a foot injury.

Just 2-12 and tied with the Chiefs for the worst record in the NFL, the Jags will then close out their season at the Tennessee Titans on the final day of the regular season.

Sunday the Titans travel to the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field to play the Green Bay Packers. It's been a disappointing year for the Titans who were expected to perform at a higher level, but lost the first two games of the year to the New England Patriots and San Diego Chargers and never recovered.

Quarterback Jake Locker is considered probable for the game after helping the Titans defeat the New York Jets 14-10 last Monday evening at the LP Field in Nashville while knocking the visitors out of the post-season.

Houston are rated as 81.00 to win the Superbowl, with the Vikings 101.00.
