Indy came in struggling offensively for 2 straight games and was focused on putting together good drives. It didn't go as planned as Luck fumbled setting the Texans up at the 30 late in the 1st quarter. HB Smith finished the drive with a 5 yard TD run. The Colts manage to respond with a nice drive moving down to the Texans 38 when Luck was injured on a pass attempt removing him from the game. Hasselbeck came in and completed two passes but wasn't able to get the touchdown. The Colts kicked a 27 yard field goal. After getting Houston to punt, the Colts with 1:38 left before halftime moved down the field and scored on a one yard run by FB Havili to take the lead 10-7. The Colts open the 2nd half in an offensive groove but stall and end up missing a 53 yard FG. But on Houston's following drive, Mallett threw an interception to CB Davis. And Indy went on the attack with a playaction pass to TE Feener to put them in scoring position. HB Richardson finished off the drive with a 1 yard score and a 17-7 lead. After forcing Houston to punt again, Indianapolis struck quickly to extend the lead. Luck connected with Nicks for a 60 yard touchdown.
