Colts vs. Texans Second Half Open Thread

Here's your open thread for the second half of the Colts versus Texans game.

What a start!

The Colts forced a Texans three and out, then drove down the field for a 27-yard Adam Vinatieri.  Then Pat "the Boomstick" McAfee converted an onside kick by kicking it right up the middle and recovering his own kick (yeah, Pat is awesome).  The next play, Andrew Luck hit T.Y. Hilton deep for a diving grab and that was followed up by a five-yard touchdown run by Trent Richardson.  Then another Texans three and out, then the next Colts drive ended in a five-yard touchdown pass from Andrew Luck to Ahmad Bradshaw.  Then another Texans three and out, and the next Colts drive ended in a four-yard touchdown pass from Andrew Luck to Coby Fleener.  At the end of the first quarter, the Colts led 24-0 - the first time since 1958 that the Colts scored that most in the first quarter (they were quarterbacked by some guy named Johnny Unitas then).

The Texans began to mount a comeback in the second quarter, however, as a stupid penalty by Zach Kerr on a Texans field goal try (illegal formation for lining up over the center) led to an insane Andre Johnson touchdown catch, then Luck was picked and a few plays later Arian Foster ran for a score to make it 24-14 Colts.

Indy drove down toward the end of the first half with a great momentum-killing drive to set up a 34-yard field goal by Adam Vinatieri to extend the lead to 27-14, and that's where it currently stands.

Here are a couple of stats from the first half: Andrew Luck is 15/25 for 240 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT.   T.Y. Hilton has 6 catches for a regular season single-game high 156 yards.

Here's your open thread for the second half of the game, and hopefully it's just as good as the first half!  As always, Go Colts!
