Default Second half vs. Indy

Houston: 21
Indianapolis: 23


the fumbles in the first quarter killed our chances. we got into a hole we couldnt climb out of, but we played much tougher after the break. come on guys, this is positive.

The Colts were playing prevent injury defense. They would have played a much different game had the Texans had a legit shot at coming back to win.

that is true. but carr only threw three incomplete passes in the first half, two of which should have been caught.

second half, he only threw one.

if we had a decent running game in either half, we couldve put something together.

but the team didn't quit. we were in this situation a lot last year and Never scored 21 in a quarter.

Texans would have played the first half like the second we might have won that game.

Texans played well in the second half because the Colts backed off. Scoring a touchdown in the last few minutes when the other team is railroading you is not because you're that dang good. It's cause the other team doesn't care about you anymore.

It's certainly something to build on.

The jury is still out on the Colts D this season, but I am mostly willing to give them a pass on the 4th quarter today.

I saw the post and thought, hey we almost came back (they cut the game off here in SA), then went to ESPN.com, and saw the 43 - 24 whipping. Now I realize it was just the 2nd half score total
