The Texans took an important step toward claiming an AFC South crown with a 20-17 win over the Colts on Thursday night.
Their offensive line protected quarterback Deshaun Watson well and allowed him to pick apart a shaky Indianapolis secondary. Watson threw for 298 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.
Wideouts Will Fuller (140 receiving yards) and DeAndre Hopkins (94 receiving yards) repeatedly beat single coverage, particularly in the second half when the Colts (6-5) were forced to be aggressive on defense against the Texans (7-4).
