The Houston Texans held off the visiting Indianapolis Colts in Week 15, winning by a score of 29-17 over their divisional rivals. 

Matt Schaub and Andre Johnson were on fire in this one, as they combined on 11 receptions for 151 yards and one touchdown. 

Schaub finished the game with 261 yards and the one touchdown, but he didn't have to carry the offense, as Arian Foster rushed for 165 yards on 27 carries. 

The busiest man for the Texans on offense was kicker Shayne Graham, who made five field goals. 

Bryan Braman was another big special-teams performer for the Texans in this game, as his fumble recovery for a touchdown on a blocked punt in the second quarter put Houston up by a score of 20-3.

Andrew Luck was under heavy pressure all game long, and the Texans tallied five sacks—three of which came by way of J.J. Watt, who had a monster game. 

Luck finished the game having completed under 50 percent of his passes, though he did manage to throw two touchdowns and zero interceptions. 

The Texans improved to 12-2 on the season and will host the Minnesota Vikings in Week 16, while the Colts fell to 9-5 and will travel to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs next Sunday.
