It has been no secret that the Colts have struggled mightily in recent weeks. In the past 7 games, they had given up 31.14 points per game and had a 4-3 record - 3-3 since the bye week. In none of those games had they played all-around great game. Today, against the Houston Texans at home, the Colts did just that, and they put together a good all-around performance to improve to 9-5 on the season, winning 25-3. The 22 point margin of victory was the second-most for the Colts this season, second only to a 37-3 week four win in Jacksonville against the Jaguars. This game was the complete opposite of recent weeks. The Colts had been starting slow and finishing fast, but today they started fast and finished slow. The Colts got out to a 20-3 halftime lead, and the only scoring in the second half was by the Colts, scoring only 5 points. Andrew Luck - who had 158 yards passing in the first half - finished the game with only 190 total. The defense never let up, though, and the Colts ended up with an impressive and much-needed 25-3 victory over the Houston Texans, extending their unbeaten streak at home against the Texans and improving to 5-0 vs. the AFC South this season. Many will point to the fact that the AFC South is terrible this year, but I'll point to the fact that it doesn't matter - the Colts have still gotten it done when they were expected to against the division.
Colts take control early, beat Texans 25-3
