Colts run their way back into game with Texans

The Texans let the Colts hang around, and the AFC South is interesting again all of a sudden.

Colts quarterback Andrew Luck just hit tight end Dwayne Allen for a touchdown, to cut the Texans lead to 23-17 in the third quarter.

The Colts have been able to run the ball, with Vick Ballard already over the 100-yard mark (103 on 14 carries). That’s something they need with protection issues up front.

Texans wideout Andre Johnson’s over 100 as well, and the Texans have moved the ball consistently. But they’re not closing the door, and the Colts keep knocking.
