Colts hold on to beat Texans in Houston

HOUSTON -- Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts had a great first quarter and did just enough the rest of the way to hold on for a 33-28 victory over the Houston Texans on Thursday night.

The Colts (4-2) raced to a 24-0 lead after one quarter, but allowed Houston to cut it to 33-28 early in the fourth quarter on J.J. Watt's fumble return for a touchdown.

The Texans (3-3) had two opportunities to take the lead late, but the Colts recovered fumbles by Andre Johnson and Ryan Fitzpatrick in the last five minutes.

Luck finished with 370 yards passing and a three touchdowns and T.Y. Hilton had a career-high 223 yards receiving with a touchdown to give Indy first place in the AFC South.
