Colts lost the earlier meeting to the Texans at Reliant Stadium in Houston 34-7 back on Opening Week on September 11. Peyton Manning's absence in live game action at the time ended his 208 regular season game starting streak at QB, plus 19 more playoffs games as the starter for the Colts, for his total overall of 227, including playoff games.

Kerry Collins started in place for the injured Peyton Manning to end Peyton's consecutive starting streak at QB, but he fumbled on two series of playin the first half.. Colts trailed 34-0 at halftime. the largest deficit in the entire 58-year history of the franchise. Houston did all their scoring of the game in the first half, but the Colts finally scored on a Collins 6 yard TD pass to Reggie Wayne three minuites into the fourth quarter, with an Adam Viniteiri PAT, for the only score in the second half, with the the Texans winning 34-7.

Indianapolis though currently leads the all-time series 16-3 entering tonight. Colts only other losses over the Texans were also at Reliant Stadium, 24-34, also on an Opening Week back on September 12, 2010, and 24-27, on December 24, 2006.

I'm just hoping this isn't Reggie's last home game. Not to mention Mathis, Saturday and Diem.

I think Saturday might retire after this year. Diem should go, he had a terrible season. I'm hoping Reg stays, but his attitude towards the situation is terrible; if we lose him, I really hope it's via a trade so we get something back instead of just losing him to free agency. I really want us to keep Mathis.

They just showed the clip of Hunter Smith tackling Deion! Sanders typically had an excuse, "I was chasing Marvin Harrison and all those young guys all game"

He referred to him as Chris Gardocki (the former punter, #17) but it WAS Hunter Smith. He either made an honest mistake or didn't want to give Hunter the credit.
