HOUSTON (AP) -- Ron Dayne has been called everything from a disappointment to an all-out bust in his NFL career.On Sunday nothing was going to stop him from proving -- if only for one afternoon -- that he was anything but a flop. The 1999 Heisman Trophy winner had a career-high 153 yards rushing and two touchdowns despite playing three quarters on an injured ankle, and Kris Brown kicked the winning 48-yard field goal as time expired, giving the Houston Texans their first win over Indianapolis, 27-24.
Ron Dayne rushed for 153 yards and two touchdowns in the Texans' 27-24 upset victory over the Colts. Dayne's last 100-yard game was on Sept. 30, 2001 for the Giants. The gap of more than five years was the longest between "consecutive" 100-yard rushing games since Brian Mitchell recorded them seven years apart (1993-2000).
