You don't get it, do you?
On the Colts first drive, on third and goal, Wayne committed offensive PI on Harris, but the official called defensive PI on Harris, extending the drive.
Instead of a FG, the Colts got a TD.
The Texans stopped the Colts right there.
The Texans sacked Luck on the second drive to stop the Colts, forcing a punt.
Luck misfired on third down on the next drive, the Colts punted again.
The Colts scored a TD on the next drive to their credit.
In the second half, the Texans stopped the Colts on their first drive.
Then came the KO return with 3 blocks in the back.
Next was a 3 and out for the Colts.
Then came a TD by the Colts to their credit with the 70-yd catch and run by Hilton.
Then came the last drive where the Colts should have punted when that bogus PI came.
The Colts should have had only 17 points (plus a pending drive after that KO return - with the penalty, they would have had the ball somewhere at their 10-yd line.)
On the other hand, the Texans could have had at least 22 points up to that point (and as many as 26) with the ball in hand.
In fact with a 5 to 9 point lead, the Texans would have been running the heck out the ball in the fourth quarter.
The Colts may have a hard time to even score when the Texans play more prevent defense; that 70-yd TD pass to Hilton may never even materialize.
(There was no guarantee that the Colts can even score 17 points.)
