Colts make sure Houston’s luck continues to turn sour

Updated: December 15, 2013

Indianapolis, IN ( – Andrew Luck tossed a pair of touchdown
passes and the Indianapolis Colts cruised to a 25-3 triumph over the reeling
Houston Texans on Sunday at Reliant Stadium.

Luck completed 19-of-32 passes for 180 yards with an interception, while Trent
Richardson racked up 102 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown for the AFC
South champion Colts (9-5), who bounced back from an ugly 42-28 loss last week
at Cincinnati.

The turmoil with the Texans, who have lost a franchise-worst 12 straight
games, reached a tipping point during the week leading up to Sunday’s game, as
head coach Gary Kubiak was fired after eight seasons and a pair of division
crowns. Wade Phillips, who also handled matters following Kubiak’s medical
scare on Nov. 3, took over on an interim basis.

Despite the change in leadership, the play on the field remained the same for
Houston (2-12), which saw quarterback Case Keenum complete just 18-of-34
passes for 168 yards with a pair of interceptions.
