The Indianapolis Colts again found a way to win against the Houston Texans in Week 15, as they sweep the season meetings with a 27-20 victory. Much like their win against the Texans in Week 13, the game was decided by one score, with the Texans threatening to score as regulation neared an end. Differently, from the bad snap that decided the game in Week 13, the Colts' defensive playmaking forced the ball to the turf leading to a recovery by Bobby Okereke in the end zone. Darius Leonard showed why he's the emotional leader on this defense, DeForest Buckner proved that despite being banged up earlier in the week, that he could rack up more than just QB hits, earning 3 sacks in the winning effort. Offensively, the Colts proved that they could run the ball with very good outputs from Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines, and Philip Rivers once again was efficient, and maintained ball control as the offense scored on all three of their second-half possessions. Frank Reich has the Colts moving in the right direction with the offense humming, and Matt Eberflus has been very good mixing up pressures, and coverages as the Colts continue to be one of the NFL's top defensive units as the season reaches critical mass. Divisional games are never easy, and the Colts nearly never blow the Texans out, but they're winning games that they should and at this point in the season that's all that really matters. The Colts will head into Week 15 with a largely healthy roster, and the Pittsburgh Steelers having lost their last three matchups after starting 11-0 on the season. Learn more about your ad choices.
