Colts hold on to edge Texans
The Indianapolis Colts held on to beat the Houston Texans, but it wasn't easy.
They won, 33-28, after their early lead evaporated.
"You're going up and down on the sideline screaming at everybody: 'Don't take your foot off the gas,'" Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. "Next thing you know, just like that (it's close). It's never over in this league."
The Colts built a 24-0 lead, but the gap got closed on J.J. Watt's fumble return for a touchdown.
"You give a team a 24-point lead right out the gate, you're going to have a difficult time," Watt said.
Andre Johnson and Ryan Fitzpatrick lost fumbles for the Texans in the final five minutes.</p>
"You can finally start to see the type of defense that we envisioned a long time ago to go out there and do that week in and week out," Pagano said.
