HOUSTON, Tex. (21 Alive) - Andrew Luck's third touchdown pass of the second half to T.Y. Hilton, a nine yarder with four minutes remaining capped a huge comeback by the Colts and gave them a 27-24 win at Houston Sunday night.
The Colts trailed 24-3 at the half as rookie Case Keenum connected with Andre Johnson for three touchdowns in that first half.
Possibly affected by the collapse of head coach Gary Kubiak as he left the field at the half and had to be removed on a stretcher, the Texans lost their momentum as the Colts got some.
Luck hit Hilton for a ten yard score in the final seconds of the third quarter, added a 58 yard score to Hilton in the fourth to make it 24-19, and then added the winning score and a two point conversion to make the comeback complete.
The 6-2 Colts' lead in the AFC remains two games over Tennessee, who won at St. Louis Sunday.
It is the Rams who the Colts play next.
