Rapid Reaction: Colts 31, Texans 27


Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky

HOUSTON -- What a collapse. What a comeback.

Sage Rosenfels erased an excellent passing day with three fourth-quarter turnovers that blew a 27-10 lead and turned into a 31-27 victory for the visiting Colts.

Indianapolis was not far at all from a 1-3 record and sole possession of last place in the AFC South, a division it has dominated since realignment. Instead the Colts got three big defensive plays as Houston went into self-destruct mode.

It's the kind of game that can catapult the victor and completely sink the loser.

The Colts are breathing at 2-2. The Texans are suffocating at 0-4.

We'll see how everyone is handling it and spinning it downstairs and I'll be back to share as soon as we can.
