The Colts and Texans play once in October in Houston and again in December in Indianapolis.

Houston Texans rookie outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney has one goal this season: sack a division rival, specifically Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck

Aside from the general idea of trying to "better myself as a player" as his goal for his first season, this year's first overall pick said it's his hope he will get to sack Luck one time because he's a "dangerous quarterback" Clowney said in a video posted to the Texans' website:

“My goal for the rookie season is to try to better myself as a player. And my goal in the NFL is to sack Andrew Luck," Clowney said. "He’s in my division, playing him two times a year, he’s a dangerous quarterback, he makes good decisions with the ball, so I just want to get after him and sack him one time."

The Texans and Colts play twice during the regular season: once in Houston on Oct. 9 for Week 5 and again Dec. 14 in Indianapolis for Week 15.
