The result, which of course had to be determined in overtime: a 26-23 Houston victory that should bring Texans fans only slight comfort, and which should absolutely devastate anyone who pins their hopes on the Colts. Through three-and-a-half quarters, Miller was the only bright spot on this offense. However, he managed to steady himself in time for an overtime win, helped greatly by Lamar Miller's 149 yards rushing and two touchdowns.
Indianapolis led 23-9 with a little over seven minutes left in regulation but two Houston touchdowns with under three minutes remaining sent the game to overtime where kicker Nick Novak hit a 33-yard field goal to seal the comeback.
"For all the fans who left, I hope their brisket turned out OK, they had to go home and check it", said Texans nose tackle Vince Wilfork, via CBS Houston. The idea of a Texans player potentially having to have surgery to a body part that he just had surgery on sounds eerily familiar, doesn't it? Kick and punt returns were average and their punter, Shane Lechler, was solid, pinning the Colts behind the 20 twice. When head coach Bill O'Brien was interviewed before halftime, he admitted that he didn't know what his team needed to do to come back and win this game. However, next week is the biggest game of the season for Houston Texans' quarterback Brock Osweiler.
