Houston Falls to Indianapolis 33-28 on Thursday Night
The Houston Texans' comeback fell just short last night as they erased a 24-0 first quarter deficit only to fall 33-28 to the Indianapolis Colt on Thursday night. Andrew Luck led the way for the Colts as he racked up 370 yards passing and three touchdowns for his fourth straight 300-yard passing game and T.Y. 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 didn't 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."
Ryan Fitzpatrick finished the game with 212 yards on 15-23 passing and a touchdown, but it was Arian Foster (pictured on the right) that kept the offense going. He rushed for 109 yards and two touchdowns for Houston in the loss.
With the loss, Houston falls to 3-3 on the season as they head into week seven. They will now prepare for the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday Night Football next week with kickoff for that game set for 7:30pm.
