    The visiting Houston Texans would pull off a monumental upset on the road in Indianapolis, defeating the unbeaten Colts in the divisional round match-up 29-14. The Texans controlled the game on the strength of their opportunistic defense, which forced 4 interceptions, in yet another game where turnovers would give Houston short fields most of the game.

    The offense, however, would struggle to get into the end zone in the first half. After failing to convert on 2 consecutive 3rd and goals from the 1 yard line, Houston would be turned away both times only managing a 6-0 lead after the 2 series. Indy would however be able to punch it in for 6 late in the second quarter to take a 7-6 lead. But the Texans would finally put together a TD scoring drove with under a minute to go in the half, with Matt Schaub hitting TE Mohammad Sellers for the TD, putting the Texans back on top 13-7. With very little time left before halftime, the Colts would attempt to put a quick drive together, but the second play in, safety Tanard Jackson would intercept a pass, his first of 2 on the day, setting up another short field and a quick field goal, heading into halftime with the Texans up 16-7.

    The Texans would take the second half kickoff and put together a long scoring drive, ending with Schaubs 2nd TD pass in the game on a screen to HB Arian Foster. Houston would add a field goal later and for the rest of the game, the vistors would play stingy defense to keep the Colts out of the end zone until late in the 4th quarter. Houston would hold on to take the upset win 29-14 and head into the AFC championship on the road again against the Dolphins-Patriots winner. Good game cry_havoc

    Solid game Dave. Clearly i wasnt prepared for this one. I made some bone head decisions and literally was just straight-up outplayed. Best of luck throughout.
