Colts win on a walkoff

This was a classic divisional matchup between Indianapolis and the Houston Texans. This game came down to the wire as the Colts scored as time was expiring to win the game 22-20. They jumped out to a quick 13-0 lead but then struggled to add on to the lead. This game ended with a TY Hilton touchdown, but make no mistake the game was won by the defense. There was constant pressure on All Pro Deshaun Watson, though he was able so scramble out of sacks most of the time he did not look comfortable in the pocket. The Colts also baited him into an interception by Chandler Jones who normally rushes the passer but dropped back into coverage to steal a slant pass. The defense also forced two forced fumbles early to set the ton of the game. Khari Willis who was involved in some trade talks forced both fumbles in a statement game to the front office. Jameis Winston played a clean game today and completed 17 of 23 passes for 224 yards and the game winning touchdown. Parris Campbell once again let the Colts in yardage with 125 yards through the air, yet it was veteran TY Hilton who made big plays in big spots all night. He hauled in 5 catches for 42 yards and the game winning touchdown and had two big third down conversions. The touchdown catch cams on a play that started with just two seconds left on the clock, Hilton ran an in route coming across the field and caught the ball 3 yards shy of the end zone and turned up field behind a crucial block by Jonathan Taylor, stretched as best as he could and just squeezed into the end zone. The play will surely wind up on being on sports centers too 10. This was the first game the team had 0 turnovers all year and it came at the right time as star running back Jonathan Taylor was bottled up to the tune of just 82 all purpose yards today. This win puts the team back even at 4-4 on the year. While they are in playoff contention they will need to string a few wins in a row to truly be considered contenders for the playoffs. They currently sit on the outside looking in, and play another playoff hopeful next week in Miami.
