    Good first half, we established a nice run game, forced 2 turnovers and make big plays. Therefore, we are in respectable position, tied 14-14 at halftime.

    Yet, its still very possible for us to come out flat at the half. Plus, the Colts can blow it open, fast (last Monday Night vs. St. Louis). So, here, in my opinon, is what we need to do in the second half to pull this one out.

    -Keep the solid and effective running game going. This kills time, and allows for succesful bootlegs/play-action passes.

    -Make stops of defense, particularly on 3rd down.

    -Maintain strong special teams, like we have thus far. (Nice Punts, Nice Kick Returns,etc.)

    Obviously, we still very well may loose this game. However, this is a positive first half of football. Just believe,

    GO TEXANS!

    We have to open up the passing game now that the Colts have to respect our run game, and we have to keep Manning off the field and our defense fresh.

    What about losing any momentum we had in the first half. That must have been on the team's list of things to do in the first half... :crying:
