Indianapolis Colts Survive Case Keenum’s Early Fireworks With Clutch 2nd Half
In some minds, the Indianapolis Colts were on upset alert coming to their game with the Houston Texans, but thanks to an incredible comeback, Indy was able to win and keep a strong hold of the AFC South. After outshooting Peyton Manning in Week 7, Andrew Luck had just enough ammunition to outshoot third-string quarterback Case Keenum.
Keenum looked great in his second NFL start, throwing for 350 yards with three TDs and no INTs, but it wasn’t enough. Down 24-6 late in the third quarter, the Colts finally came alive with three unanswered touchdowns. All three TDs were Luck-to-T.Y. Hilton connections, which could be a sign of things to come.
The loss of Reggie Wayne last week was massive for Indy. Only Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson have attempted to connect more than Luck and Wayne since 2012. Since Luck joined the NFL, he has targeted Wayne 252 times for an average of 11 per game, and is now in need of a new go-to-guy. It took almost three quarters to find him, but Hilton filled in masterfully.
The second-year wide receiver caught seven passes on 12 targets for 121 yards and a career-high three TDs. Houston out-gained Indy 483-314 in the game, but Luck and Hilton’s heroics, combined with three badly-missed field goals by Randy Bullock, have the Colts at 6-2.
The Colts have been hit hard by the injury bug, but proved their resiliency on Sunday Night. When a man goes down, everyone else has to step up, which is exactly what the Indy offense did. A loss would have cut their AFC South lead to one game, but now they have a comfortable two-game cushion over the Tennessee Titans.
