Why it's on the list: The Colts showed why you can never count them out.
Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub was sick. In comes backup Sage Rosenfels.
Rosenfels starts off on the right foot for the Texans as they faced the Indianapolis Colts at Reliant Stadium in Houston. Rosenfels was cool and collective for three-and-three-fourths of a quarter.
The final one-fourth was a nightmare.
Up 27-10, with four minutes left in the game was when the collapsing began for Houston. Colts quarterback Peyton Manning regained his confidence after finding tight end Tom Santi for a touchdown to put them within 10.
With four minutes left, the Texans just had to control the clock and suck some time from it.
Easier said than done.
On third-and-eight at Indy territory, Rosenfels fumbled the ball, it was recovered by Colts linebacker Gary Brackett, and he returned it 68 yards for a touchdown.
Like that, Indianapolis was down by three and it only took 28 seconds off the clock to do it.
Rosenfels fumbeld the ball again on their next possession and it was recovered by defensive end Robert Mathis at the Houston 20-yard line.
After a 15-yard rush from Indy running back Joseph Addai, Manning found receiver Reggie Wayne, who made one of the catches of the year by getting it one-handed in the corner of the end zone. After reviewing the play, it stood and the Colts took the lead, 31-27.
Now the Texans had to play catch-up. But just to add salt to a massively-opened wound on Rosenfels, Melvin Bullitt caught an interception to seal it for the Indianapolis.
