Monkeys Ride Dogs at Halftime of Texans vs Colts

What's better than monkeys riding Border Collies?


Week 17 in the NFL is full of serious business, but we wanted to take a look a the lighter side of things for a change.

But wait! This gets better.

The dog-riding monkeys need a job to do, and there's nothing they like to do better than herd goats in the middle of an NFL stadium.

This halftime show was far from the only thing fans of the Indianapolis Colts had to cheer about on Sunday, too. 

Chuck Pagano returned to the sidelines for the first time since Week 3 after he was diagnosed with leukemia. He was received with a standing ovation by the crowd at Lucas Field before the game began, and his team came out with passion and executed the game plan to perfection. 

The Colts went on to win the game by a score of 28-16, beating the Houston Texans and winning their 11th game of the season. 

It's a remarkable turnaround after winning just two games a year ago, and the Colts will now prepare for a wild-card matchup on the road against the Baltimore Ravens.

We don't know when we'll next see the monkeys, dogs and goats, but we'll certainly keep our eyes peeled for their next show.
