The Houston Texans will attempt to end the worst skid in franchise history in a place where they've never won.

Houston plays the Colts on Sunday, looking to stop an 11-game losing streak and win for the first time in Indianapolis.

Running back Ben Tate says they aren't worried about where they're playing this week, all they're focused on is winning. He joked that he wouldn't care if they were playing in a parking lot or a shopping mall — they simply must figure out a way to snap the losing streak.

They'll try to turn things around in the first game since coach Gary Kubiak was fired on Friday. Wade Phillips is the interim coach, and he mixed up some things in practice Wednesday in an attempt to get Houston back on track.
