Texans fall short of upsetting Colts

After falling behind Andrew Luck and the Colts 24-0 in just one quarter, the Houston Texans scratched and fought their way back to just a five-point deficit.

But two late-game fumbles by Andre Johnson and Ryan Fitzpatrick killed potentially game-winning drives and the final score favored Indianapolis 33-28.

JJ Watt was awesome once again, taking a fumble recovery 56 yards for a touchdown and something called a ‘Nae Nae dance’, whatever the hell that is:

 JJ Watt now has three touchdowns this season … LeSean McCoy, Larry Fitzgerald and Megatron have three combined.

Even in a loss, Watt is changing the way we think about defensive linemen. In just his fourth season he is already metamorphosing into one of the greatest players of his generation.

And at the end of the day it’s JJ’s heart and not his talent that makes him such an exciting player to watch.

Simply put, this dude loves football.

The Colts are now in sole possession of first place in the AFC South, but Houston is making a strong case for being a legitimate threat to challenge Indy for the division title. Without question the Texans are on track to be 2014’s most improved club.

But to topple the Colts they’ll need to find a way to stop Andrew Luck, who once again put on a passing clinic.

370 yards, 3 touchdowns, 1 interception.

When’s this guy gonna have an off night?
