Andrew Luck threw for 370 yards and three touchdowns, and the Indianapolis Colts beat the Texans, 33-28, on Thursday night in Houston. Indianapolis (4-2) jumped out to a 24-0 lead after one quarter, but they had to hold on at the end of the game to earn the win.

J.J. Watt returned a fumble 45 yards for a touchdown early in the final quarter to pull Houston (3-3) within five points, but fumbles by the Texans’ Andre Johnson and Ryan Fitzpatrick were recovered by the Colts in the final minutes to cement the final outcome.

Indy’s T.Y. Hilton recorded a career-high 223 yards receiving on nine catches, including a touchdown, as the Colts surged into first place in the AFC South.

Arian Foster ran for 109 yards and two scores for Houston. Johnson caught seven passes for 99 yards and a touchdown for the Texans.
