INDIANAPOLIS – The Colts better get used to playing on Saturday and wearing their white jerseys in the month of January.

As the No. 6 seed in capturing the final AFC Wild Card spot, the Colts will play on the road for their entire playoff run, however long that becomes.

The first matchup comes Saturday at 4:35 PM, taking on the Texans in Houston. That game will be an ESPN broadcast, simulcasted on ABC.

This will be the third meeting between the Colts and Texans this year, with the two teams splitting their first two contests this season, with the road team winning each game in 2018.

If the Colts beat the Texans, they will play in the same exact timeslot the following Saturday, against the No. 1 seed Kansas City.

Because the Colts are the No. 6 seed, they are locked into playing the top-seeded Chiefs, if they beat the Texans this coming Saturday.

A possible road playoff path would look like this: Houston, Kansas City and New England/Baltimore/Los Angeles.
