Texans look to rebound from terrible offensive performance with home-field advantage at stake

The Houston Texans didn't score a touchdown for the first time in more than six years and had their fewest yards of the season in last weekend's loss to the Vikings.

They must get their offense back on track for Sunday's game against the Colts, when they need a win to secure home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs.

The offense is disappointed it struggled at a time when it should be peaking. Quarterback Matt Schaub says he's looking at the things he can do better and will then focus on helping the rest of the offense correct its mistakes.

The Texans believe better execution and keeping third downs manageable will be keys to success this week in Indianapolis, a place they've never won.
