Next thing you know, just like that (its close). Its never over in this league.The Colts (4-2) led 24-0 after one quarter, but allowed Houston (3-3) to cut it to 33-28 early in the fourth quarter on J.J.

Hilton had a career-high 223 yards receiving with a touchdown to give Indy first place in the AFC South.We realized with the recent history of Thursday night games, teams who are going on the road are struggling, and we didnt want to do that, Luck said. We were lucky enough to get off on that fast start. It takes focus, and you almost have to trick yourself into it.The Texans were driving with less than five minutes remaining when Johnson a€” called for pass interference two plays earlier a€” caught a 13-yard pass and fumbled.Watt knocked down Lucks pass on third down on Indys next drive to give Houston one last chance.

The 2-point conversion failed, leaving Indianapolis up 33-21.After a dreadful first quarter where Houston managed just 2 yards, the Texans offence finally got going in the second quarter. They kicked a field goal on fourth-and-5, but the Colts got a penalty to give Houston a new set of downs.They took advantage of the opportunity when Fitzpatrick found Johnson in the corner of the end zone and he managed to get both feet in bounds for a 4-yard touchdown two plays later to cut the lead to 24-7. It was the first touchdown of the season for Johnson.Houston got the ball back when Jared Crick tipped a pass by Luck that was intercepted by Justin Tuggle.The Texans got to 24-14 when Foster scored on a 12-yard run.The Colts added field goal to make it 27-14.Luck found Hilton on a 40-yard pass early in the first quarter, but Indys offence stalled after that and the Colts settled for a field goal to make it 3-0.Trent Richardson had a 5-yard touchdown run on a two-play drive that included a 49-yard pass to Hilton.The play was originally ruled a touchdown after Hilton recovered from a fall seemingly untouched by defender Kareem Jackson and reached the end zone.
