GAME RELEASE: Indianapolis at Minnesota

Colts travel to Minnesota for first matchup with Vikings since 2012.


The Indianapolis Colts will travel to Minnesota to  face the Vikings in Week 15. The game time is set  for 1:00 p.m. EST at U.S. Bank Stadium.

The contest will mark the 24th all-time meeting between the teams in the regular season, with the Colts holding a 15-7-1 advantage. Indianapolis defeated Minnesota, 23-20, in their last tilt on Sept. 6, 2012 at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Last week, the Colts hosted the Texans and lost, 22-17.

Indianapolis put the first points on the board as kicker Adam Vinatieri connected on a 32 yard field goal in the first quarter.

Houston would manufacture 13 unanswered points to enter halftime with a 13-3 lead.

The Texans added their third field goal of the game early in the third quarter before the Colts orchestrated a six-play, 75-yard drive that resulted in an 18-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Andrew Luck to running back Frank Gore to bring the score to 16-10.

Houston padded their lead with another field goal early in the final frame.

Luck then constructed an eight-play, 83-yard drive that concluded with a 35-yard touchdown throw to wide receiver T.Y. Hilton.

The Colts attempted a late rally after the Texans' fifth field goal conversion brought the game to 22-17. With 1:24 left, Indianapolis' fourth down  conversion was thwarted as Houston earned their first season sweep of  the Colts in franchise history.
