There was an incomplete pass to Hilton in the 2nd half that looked like it could be a fumble. It took about 4 seconds before a d-lineman (Watt, who else?), to hustle over to the ball. They just aren't chasing the ball, coming off blocks, forcing turnovers the way they did earlier in the year. Tired? Hurt? I don't have the answer. But this is not the same unit by a long shot.

I saw that too. Manning jumped on him, knocked the ball out, then celebrated. The ref was looking around, he probably would have called it a fumble. He was standing right there.

A second ref came from behind the play to wave off the catch.

I couldn't believe no one was jumping on that ball.

Yep, the texans two season dominance is over. Seriously is there anyone that wouldn't trade the entire texans team for the colts heading into next season?

I think the Texans believe they are better than they really are and just don't get very emotional/up for the game. You can probably put some of the blame on the coaching staff.

i am not sure Colts best team yet but I am sure they have the best QB by a long shot.

We get Mario for the first pick they get Luck(y). That is the way the ball bounces. To top it off we get nothing when Mario leaves. The Dallas Cowboys build a dynasty by trading Hershel Walker we get crap, that is just poor planning.

Also I think based on them getting Luck they will seriously contend for a Super Bowl before the Texans. The Colts are going up the Texans down.

You can say our front office did a great job but the only two things I remember that they have done a good job on so far is Joseph/Manning and draft Watt. I am sure someone can remember more. List them to make me feel better. Any think they(fo) have ever made any mistakes??

I think this is a little premature. The Colts were the better team today.

Somehow or another, we still won 12 games. They didn't. All they had to do was come out expired & beat the piss-poor Texans two weeks ago.

They're definitely better off than we thought they were. Let's see how they play with their new coach. Let's see how they handle that next year.

I've seen nothing to make me think the long term trend for the Texans is downward. If anything, with Kubiak & Schaub we may have plateaued. We'll see what this dynamic duo will do in the play-offs. I think Kubiak was very uncharacteristic and unleashed his QB last year against the Ravens, Let's see what he does next week.

Just look at the entire team.

They drafted most of these guys like Brown and Cushing. They've made plenty of good moves, you don't get to where they are right now unless you make a bunch of good moves.

Yeah they have made some mistakes but no FO is perfect.

Yes they are. They have a good qb that is only going to get better. Put more talent on that team and they are even better.

We needed a colts fumble on the goal line and punt block and TD for Braman to beat them last time.

They are already better and hopefully the other two scrub teams don't fall into a good qb in the draft.

& they needed two Matt Schaub interceptions & a ST screw up to beat us this time.

What's your point?

Andrew Luck looking every bit the franchise QB as he sweeps the 49ers/Seahawks while completing his 9th 4th Quarter comeback in just 21 games.

People think I'm crazy but I would trade JJ for Andrew Luck head up . By making this trade the Texans would be a much better team because the QB hides more faults than any other position .

of course the Colts are better. This isn't the preseason so we have actual proof. Does anyone seriously think that anyone outside of Houston think that the Schaub led Texans are superior to the Luck led Colts?

In hindsight I'm digging this post so much. Last years screw ups are the same as this years screw ups.

The Colts are clearly the best team in the division..... again.

Thankfully the Texans are clearly no longer the most screwed up team in the division. That's the Jaguars property now and dammit they're trying so hard you just got to give it to them.

My God, I would hate that, but I don't think you're crazy. The NFL is a QB driven league now, and the league does not want defense to be able to defend. they want high scoring and they want QBs and WRs to be protected. Even if Watt is better (which he is, at this point), Luck will have the greater impact over the long term because he has the league office in his pocket, just like every other star QB.

The Ravens paid Flacco after he won the SB , the Texans paid Schaub before he got close . Another classic error of the Texans over valuing their guys .
