    NFL Game Summary - Houston at Indianapolis



    (Sunday, November 8th)

    Final Score: Indianapolis 20, Houston 17

    Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - Joseph Addai's two-yard run was the go- ahead score in the fourth quarter and Houston's Kris Brown missed a 42-yard field goal on the final play of the game, as Indianapolis remained unbeaten by squeaking past Houston, 20-17, at Lucas Oil Stadium.

    Addai ended with 63 yards on 14 carries and Peyton Manning finished 34-of-50 for 318 yards with one touchdown and an interception for the Colts (8-0), who matched the 1933-34 Chicago Bears for the third-longest streak in NFL history after posting their 17th consecutive victory.

    "Huge win. Great effort," Manning said of the comeback. "Everything wasn't perfect but it was a great job of just fighting to come up with the big win."

    Dallas Clark posted 14 receptions for 119 yards for Indianapolis, which hasn't lost since October 27, 2008 at Tennessee.

    The Colts host New England in a marquee matchup next Sunday night, and if they win they will tie the 2003-04 Patriots for the second-most consecutive wins with 18.

    Matt Schaub was 32-of-43 for 311 yards, one score and two interceptions for the Texans (5-4), who saw their three-game win streak snapped.

    Andre Johnson had 10 catches for 103 yards while Ryan Moats recorded a TD reception and Steve Slaton scored on the ground for Houston, which has dropped 14 of 15 meetings to its AFC South rivals since entering the league in 2002.

    "I am proud of our team's effort," said Texans head coach Gary Kubiak. "Defense got us in this game. I like the way we collectively settled down and played for the final three quarters."

    The Texans held the Colts to a three-and-out midway through the third quarter, then melted 6:41 off the clock while going 84 yards to take a 17-13 edge on the first play of the fourth after Slaton scored on 3rd-and-goal from the one.

    Manning was picked off by Bernard Pollard at the Texans' 24 but Houston failed to move the ball and the Colts jumped back on top on Addai's two-yard run with 7:11 left in the contest. The score capped an eight-play, 61-yard drive.

    "I thought Joe popped some runs, a couple big ones on that drive for a touchdown," Manning said. "Great run by him on the score. I thought he did a great job whenever we called his number."

    Clint Session then stepped in front of a Schaub pass and returned it to the Colts' 40-yard-line with 2:13 remaining, but the home team didn't advance the ball. Houston got the ball at its own 15 with 1:46 to play and Schaub converted a pair of third downs, the last one to Johnson which got the visitors to the Indianapolis 32.

    Schaub connected with Jacoby Jones to the 24, then spiked the ball with one second left. Brown stepped in for a 42-yard try, which he pushed just wide of the left upright as time expired.

    "I felt the ball come off my foot really well. It just moved a little to the left," said Brown. "I take a lot of pride in coming through for this team, especially in these situations. To have this happen is disappointing."

    Addai's seven-yard catch-and-run score capped Indy's second drive of the contest for a 7-0 lead.

    Jerraud Powers picked off Schaub near midfield on Houston's following series, and the Colts turned that into a 10-0 advantage after Matt Stover hit from 22 yards.

    Stover booted a 37-yarder early in the second for a 13-0 game, and a potential late scoring drive for Indy was derailed on Pollard's pick.

    The Texans drove across midfield in the waning seconds and Brown drilled a career-long 56-yarder on the final play.

    Houston's opening drive of the second half moved quickly from its own 14, and Moats finished the series with a one-yard TD catch for a 13-10 game.

    Game Notes

    Indianapolis also began the 2005 and 2006 seasons by winning its first eight contests...Schaub's TD pass to Moats was his 17th of the season, setting a new franchise record...Houston held a slight 382-378 edge in total offense...The Texans are next in action on November 23 hosting Tennessee.
