HOUSTON, Tx. (WLFI) - The Indianapolis Colts rallied for a 27-24 victory over the Houston Texans on Sunday night.
Andrew Luck got off to a slow start before throwing three second half touchdowns to T.Y. Hilton to overcome an 18-point halftime deficit and give the AFC South-leading Colts the victory.
The Colts took their first lead of the game when Hilton hauled in a 9-yard touchdown reception and Coby Fleener caught the 2-point conversion to make it 27-24 with 4 minutes remaining.
Case Keenum threw for 350 yards and three touchdowns in his second career start, but had trouble moving the offense after halftime as the Texans lost their sixth straight game after opening the season 2-0.
Houston had a chance to tie it with :05 on the clock, but Randy Bullock's 55-yard field goal attempt as time expired sailed wide left.
Adam Vinatieri kicked field goals of 30 and 35 yards in the second and third quarters for the Colts.
The Colts were playing their first game since losing star receiver Reggie Wayne for the season. Wayne tore his right ACL in an Oct. 20 win over Denver and had season-ending surgery.
Indianapolis returns to action next Sunday as the Colts host the St. Louis Rams at Lucas Oil Stadium.
