Colts 27, Texans 24

Colts' comeback stuns Texans

HOUSTON — In a game overshadowed by Texans coach Gary Kubiak's trip to the hospital after he collapsed at halftime (see Around the league, this page), the Colts rallied for the victory.

Andrew Luck threw three second-half touchdown passes to former Florida International standout T.Y. Hilton as Indianapolis erased an 18-point halftime deficit.

Case Keenum threw for 350 yards and three scores, all to Andre Johnson, in his second career start. But Houston stalled in the second half of its sixth straight loss.

Houston had a chance to tie it, but Randy Bullock's 55-yard field-goal attempt as time expired was wide left. He was 1-for-4 on the night.

The Colts took their first lead on Hilton's 9-yard score. Tight end Coby Fleener caught the two-point conversion pass to make it 27-24 with 4 minutes left.

Houston's Arian Foster left in the first quarter with a back injury.
