What stood out from the Indianapolis Colts’ 27-24 comeback victory over the Houston Texans on Sunday night at Reliant Stadium:

T.Y. emerges
His night began with a drop of a third-down pass that would have been a first down. But Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton more than atoned for the early mistake.

The Colts rallied from an 18-point halftime deficit behind three Hilton touchdown catches. The second-year pro finished with a team-high seven catches for 121 yards, including a 58-yard TD.

Much was made of how the Colts would respond to not having leading receiver Reggie Wayne, who suffered a season-ending knee injury the last game. Wayne made the trip to Houston to support his team.

Kubiak carted off
Houston coach Gary Kubiak went to his knees and then to the ground as the teams were heading to the locker room for halftime. He spoke to medical personnel and sat up briefly, then was carted off to an ambulance for a trip to a hospital.

Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, who assumed Kubiak’s head coaching duties, told NBC sideline reporter Michele Tafoya the hospital trip was “precautionary.” The Texans advised Tafoya during the third quarter that Kubiak did not suffer a heart attack.

The Texans released this email statement: “Houston Texans Head Coach Gary Kubiak has been taken to a local hospital. He is conscious and his family is with him.”

'Andre The Uncoverable'
Texans No. 1 wide receiver Andre Johnson entered without a touchdown catch this season. By the end of the first quarter the Pro Bowl star had two TDs. By halftime, he had a career-high three.

He beat Vontae Davis on a double move for a 62-yard score, then got behind safety Antoine Bethea for a 41-yard strike and a 14-0 lead. Johnson finished the first quarter with four catches for 137 yards.

Late in the first half, the 11th-year pro seemed to be covered by Davis but the 6-foot-3 receiver jumped over the 5-11 cornerback for a 5-yard TD catch and a 21-3 lead.

Johnson finished with nine catches for 229 yards. First-year Texans QB Case Keenum, making his second NFL start, completed 20-of-34 passes for 350 yards.

Luck sticks with it
Colts quarterback Andrew Luck was under duress early and often. When he wasn’t sacked — the Texans got to him four times — the second-year passer didn’t have time nor see enough open receivers for much of three quarters.

Luck missed on seven consecutive attempts and was 3-of-12 passing for 56 yards at halftime. The offense failed to convert on its first eight third-down chances.

But showing resiliency once again, Luck drove the Colts to a 10th game-winning drive in the fourth quarter or overtime in his 24-game, regular-season career. He finished 18-of-40 for 271 yards.

Colts lead by two games
The Colts improved to 6-2, two games ahead of Tennessee in the AFC South Division at the season’s midway point. And they come home

Sunday to play 3-6 St. Louis.

The Texans, two-time defending division champions, fell to 2-6 with their sixth consecutive loss and are likely out of the playoff picture.
