Colts Start Fast; Hold Off Texans In 33-28 Win

Indianapolis Colts v Houston Texans

The Colts got off to a blazing start Thursday night against the Texans, but by the time it was over they had to sweat it out to take home a key AFC South win.

After leading 24-0 after the first 15 minutes, the Colts D needed two late stops to hold off the Texans in a 33-28 win to put Indianapolis at 4-2 on the still young season.

The Texans had two opportunities to take the lead late, but the Colts recovered fumbles by Andre Johnson and Ryan Fitzpatrick in the last five minutes.

“You can finally start to see the type of defense that we envisioned a long time ago to go out there and do that week in and week out,” Colts coach Chuck Pagano said.

Andrew Luck and T.Y. Hilton looked like Steve Young and Jerry Rice in the opening quarter, as the two combined to build Indy a huge lead before the Texans got going to make it a game.

Luck finished with 370 yards passing and three touchdowns for his fourth straight 300-yard passing game. Hilton had a career-high 223 yards receiving with a touchdown, with 140 yards receiving in the first quarter.

“I realize it’s only Week 6 so it’s not a Super Bowl, and it’s not anything too, too special,” Luck said. “But to beat a real darn-good football team like that is huge for us.”

Houston closed it to a five-point game when defensive stud J.J. Watt took back a fumble for a touchdown, his fourth score this season.

The Colts D stepped up when needed, as the Bjoern Werner sacked Fitzpatrick and stripped the ball, and D’Qwell Jackson recovered to end the Texans last threat.
