Colts hold off Texans in Thursday night win

The Indianapolis Colts might never lose a game in the AFC South again.

Matt Hasselbeck helped the Colts beat a division rival for the second time in five days Thursday night, this time on the road in a 27-20 win over a desperate Texans team in Houston.
This marks the 16th straight division win for the Colts. If the Texans (and Jaguars last week) can’t beat the Colts without Andrew Luck, when are they going to beat them?

Then again, it’s worth noting that the quarterback play for the Colts has improved since Hasselbeck took over. He put together another savvy performance mixing great timing, anticipation, touch on his passes and a willingness to stand tough in the pocket until the minute. He finished with 213 yards on 29 attempts and two touchdowns, both connections with Andrew Johnson. With the chance to ice the game late, the Colts smartly chose to be aggressive. The 40-year-old quarterback delivered a 40-yard toss like a boss to T.Y. Hilton so they could run out the clock.
