2013 Week 9 SNF 4* NFL Pick: Colts PK

[Colts/TEXANS] While some defenses may be concerned with facing the streaking Keenum, 110.6 rating, and a Texans offense averaging over 390 yards, coming off a monster victory versus the Broncos, look for Luck, 91.3 rating, to shine after their bye week.

  1. WINNER – Colts 27, TEXANS 24 – Houston, TX (SportsNetwork.com) – What was supposed to be a close race in the AFC South has been anything but. The Houston Texans, though, have more important issues to worry about. Andrew Luck tossed three touchdown passes to T.Y. Hilton in the second half as the Indianapolis Colts overcame an 18- point hole at the break to down the Texans, 27-24, on Sunday night. Houston head coach Gary Kubiak collapsed during halftime while running off the field and into the locker room. He was carted off the field on a stretcher and was taken to a local hospital. Kubiak fell to his knees around the 24-yard line near the Texans’ sideline. He attempted to sit up, but was unable to stay upright. Kubiak is conscious and his family is with him in the hospital. Luck flipped a 9-yard TD pass to Hilton in the right flat with 4:05 left in the fourth and Coby Fleener hauled in the ensuing two-point conversion to give Indy a 27-24 lead. The Texans then went three-and-out, but Houston got the ball back at its own 33-yard line with 44 seconds on the clock after the Colts punted three plays later. Case Keenum fired completions of 16 and 14 yards, respectively, before spiking the ball at the Indy 37. Randy Bullock, though, who missed two prior field goals, wasn’t close on the 55-yard boot as it hooked wide left as time expired. Luck was just 18-of-40 for 271 yards, while Hilton caught seven passes for 121 yards for the Colts (6-2), who hold a commanding four-game lead over the Texans and two-game spread over the Tennessee Titans for first place in the division. Indy played its first game without star receiver Reggie Wayne in 12 years. Wayne, who had made 189 consecutive starts, tore his right ACL in an Oct. 20 victory over the Denver Broncos. Andre Johnson had 190 yards and three scores in the first half to help the Texans build a 21-3 advantage, but tallied just 39 yards after the break for Houston (2-6), which has dropped six straight for the first time since 2005. Keenum was 20-of-34 for 350 yards and three touchdowns in his second career start.
