The Indianapolis Colts will host the Houston Texans in Week 14. The game time is set for 1:00 p.m. EST at Lucas Oil Stadium. The contest will mark the 30th all-time meeting between the teams in the regular season, with the Colts holding a 23-6 advantage. Indianapolis fell to Houston, 26-23, in a Week 6 overtime matchup earlier this season in Texas.

Last week, the Colts defeated the New York Jets on Monday Night Football, 41-10.

Indianapolis led the entire game. Quarterback Andrew Luck (22-of-28 for 278 yards and four touchdowns) threw three first half touchdown passes to tight end Dwayne Allen (four receptions for 72 yards and three touchdowns), and kicker Adam Vinatieri connected on a 53-yard attempt in the second quarter. In the first half, the Colts defense did not allow a Jets third down conversion (0-of-5) as Indianapolis possessed a 24-3 lead at halftime.

Luck threw his fourth touchdown of the game in the third quarter to wide receiver Donte Moncrief. It marked the fifth consecutive game that Moncrief had a touchdown reception. Vinatieri converted another field goal and running back Robert Turbin ran for a touchdown to pad a 41-3 lead in the fourth quarter.

New York collected the last points of the game on a touchdown drive early in the fourth quarter to bring the score to 41-10.

Defensively, the Colts forced three interceptions by defensive backs Mike Adams, Darius Butler and Darryl Morris. Wide receiver T.Y. Hilton led all players with nine receptions for 146 yards to surpass 1,000 yards for the fourth consecutive season.
