How did they do it?
How did the Indianapolis Colts go from getting kicked around just two weeks ago by the Houston Texans to upsetting them by the same difference, 28-16?
Indy has defied explanation all season, so hopefully a second look at the tape will show how they pulled off their 11th win of the season.
The Real Story
The biggest difference between this game and the 29-17 beating by the Texans two weeks ago was the fast start by Indianapolis, as they held a 14-6 lead at halftime.
The Texans dominated large stretches of the contest but, once again, settled for field goals at the wrong times. Because Indy had a great opening drive (13 plays, 75 yards in 7:09) for a touchdown, the Texans played more uphill. It's also clear that the emotion of the crowd played a factor in the game.
