HOUSTON (AP) — When Indianapolis raced to a big lead over the Houston Texans in the first quarter, Colts coach Chuck Pagano was worried they’d let up.
They did, but that early lead was so big that they were still able to hold on for a 33-28 victory Thursday night.
“You’re going up and down on the sideline screaming at everybody: ‘Don’t take your foot off the gas,'” Pagano said. “Next thing you know, just like that (it’s close). It’s never over in this league.”
The Colts (4-2) led 24-0 after one quarter, but allowed Houston (3-3) to cut it to 33-28
