The Indianapolis Colts (11-0) had big comeback in the second half to take down the Houston Texans (5-6) and seal the AFC South conference. Peyton Manning had a bad first half, throwing two interceptions, and the Colts found themselves down 20-7 at halftime. Manning woke up in the second half though, throwing 2 touchdowns and leading the Colts to 28 straight points. Manning finished the game with 3 touchdowns, 2 interceptions, and 244 yards on 27/35 passes. The Colts running game was very effective, getting 114 yards on 23 carries as a team.
The Colts defense did not come out ready to play against Matt Schaub and the Texans’ offense. They let them build a 14-0 lead after the first quarter and gave up way too many yards in the first half. The secondary were able to get two picks off Schaub, but they let him throw for 2 touchdowns and 284 yards. They also gave up way too many yards on the ground, with the Texans getting 122 yards on only 24 carries. The Colts never gave up though and got their 5th straight comeback victory, which shows how resilient they are. The Colts do not want to keep finding themselves down late in the game though and they need to bring the same effort for the full 60 minutes.
