HOUSTON (WTHR) — With a chance at the playoffs likely on the line, the Colts took down the division-leading Houston Texans 24-21.

Andrew Luck had a very strong game as he completed 27 of his 41 passes for 399 yards and 2 touchdowns.

His favorite target on the day was T.Y. Hilton who finished with 9 receptions on 12 targets for 199 yards.

"Certainly when the offensive was struggling the defense lead the charge," Luck told Eyewitness Sports Director Dave Calabro after the game. "When we needed to, we put points on the board."

The Colts host the Dallas Cowboys at 1pm this Sunday in a battle of two of the hottest teams in the NFL. Both teams have won six of their last seven games.
