Texans Edged by Colts, 27-24

Andre Johnson had a big night for Indianapolis Colts, but it wasn't enough to avoid a surprisingly close loss for the Texans against the Colts, 27-24, at home.

Case Keenum found the end zone three times on 20 of 34 passing for 350 yards and no interceptions. Andrew Luck was just as hot for the Colts, and finished 18 for 40 with 271 yards passing, three touchdowns and no interceptions.

Ben Tate ran for 81 yards on 22 carries. Johnson was a highlight, catching nine passes for 229 yards while adding three touchdowns.

The Houston defense gave up 69 yards rushing and 271 passing. They tormented Luck with four sacks.

Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton had a big game, putting up 121 receiving yards and three touchdowns. Tight end Coby Fleener also had a good game with 64 receiving yards.

The Texans travel to Glendale next week to meet the Cardinals (4-4) while the Colts are at home to take on the Rams (3-6).
