Texans Defeat Colts 34-24

+Read full article

Final Score Houston-34 Indianapolis-24

Sunday was a glorious day for Texans fans. The Texans had a huge game on their hands and they exceeded expectations by beating the Colts at home. The crowd at Reliant Stadium was loud the entire game and made an impact on the outcome for sure. Arian Foster was the star for the Texans, he had a monster game rushing for a team record 231 yards and 3 TDs . He busted big runs and pounded the Colts defense. Matt Schaub and the passing game didn’t have a great day but they didn’t need to considering how well the Texans were running the ball. Foster was dynamite; he made great cuts, ran with patience and vision, he made a nice one handed catch out of the backfield and most importantly he held onto the football the whole game. Foster is the type of workhorse that a team can ride to victory and thats exactly what the Texans did on Sunday. The defense did its part in the win as well, sacking Peyton Manning, forcing a turnover and limiting the Colt’s opportunities. Bernard Pollard and the secondary were torched for over 400 yards passing but held the Colts to under 50 yards rushing. Mario Williams and Antonio Smith combined on a sack and linebacker Zac Diles lead the team with 12 total tackles. It was a great performance by the Texans on both sides of the ball, I’m extremely proud of them. They have a big test next week against the Redskins in Washington D.C. but I think they can handle it after the way they silenced the Colts in week 1.

Watch Chiefs' Smith Hit Conley For Huge TD

Right before this touchdown, Jeremy Maclin may have suffered a serious knee injury, which means the Chiefs are going to need more of this out of the rookie Chris Conley. With a 20-0 lead, the Chiefs will likely advance to the AFC Divisional Round next week.

Texans Actually Tried J.J. Watt At QB

There's something to be said for pulling out all the stops and using every trick play in the book to win a playoff game, but bringing in J.J. Watt to play quarterback in the wildcat formation was probably a giveaway that he would be running the ball.
