2010 Look Back – Colts Fall to the Texans in Season Opener 34-24

The Colts were pushed out of the playoffs in the first round against the Jets, as today as they start to look past the lockout and get ready for the 2011 season, we look back at the 2010 season. Today it’s the first game of the 2010 season, a 34-24 loss to the Texans.

I was very disappointed by the showing the Indianapolis Colts gave in their season-opener against the Houston Texans, losing 34-24. The is the second time in the last three years the Colts have lost in their season-openers. Last time, it came during a game against the Chicago Bears in the team’s first game inside Lucas Oil Stadium. It was a 29-13 loss.

Arian Foster was the big difference, as the Texans fooled the Colts big time on defense. Matt Schaub was expected to do a lot during this game, after leading the league in passing with 4,770 yards. But it was Foster who led the Texans on offense, rushing for 231 and having three touchdowns in the 34-24 victory.

With Foster’s stellar performance, the Texans have broke a six-game losing-streak to the Colts. The last time Houston got a win against Indianapolis was at home during the 2006-07 season, winning with a Kris Brown field goal in the closing seconds, 27-24. Houston now improves their record to 2-15 all-time against Indianapolis.
