• Colts winning drive is Manningesque in defeating Texans 19-16

    December 23, 2011 No comments

    Reggie Wayne caught a 1-yard touchdown pass from Dan Orlovsky with 19 seconds left and the Indianapolis Colts beat the Houston Texans 19-16 Thursday night.

    The Colts (2-13) have now won two straight, both against division foes, behind Orlovsky, the former Texans quarterback who lost his first nine NFL starts.

    AFC South champion Houston hardly looked playoff-ready. It settled for two red-zone field goals, didn’t convert a third down until getting a lucky bounce late in the fourth quarter, its running game was stymied late and the defense helped the Colts with three penalties on the decisive drive.

    The Texans fell to 0-10 in Indianapolis.

    Arian Foster had 23 carries for 158 yards and scored on the Texans’ only touchdown on the third play of the game.
