Texans claw back to lead before Colts get TD return

Just when it looked like the Texans found themselves, the Colts are right back on top.

Trying to secure the top seed in the AFC playoffs, the Texans found their running game and jumped back to a 16-14 lead after trailing 14-6 at halftime.

But that lead lasted 12 seconds, as Colts return man Deji Karim took the ensuing kickoff back 101 yards for a touchdown and a 21-16 lead.

Texans running back Arian Foster was quiet in the first half, but now has 14 carries for 91 yards and a touchdown. If he can keep it up, the Texans have a chance to get the lead back, on a day when quarterback Matt Schaub is far from sharp.
