HOUSTON — The Indianapolis Colts blew a 14-point lead and lost to division rival Houston 26-23 in overtime.

The Colts’ defense was strong through three quarters and had their first 100-yard rusher in more than three seasons, but long passes down the field in the 4th Quarter kept the Houston Texans close enough to force overtime.
The Colts won the toss and received, but a sack forced a punt.

Texans QB Brock Osweiler found a receiver for a 36-yard gain on the fourth play of the drive, which set up a chip shot of a 33-yard field goal for the win.

The Colts fall to 2-4 and travel to Tennessee to face the Titans next week. The Texans improve to 4-2 and have carved out a padded lead in the AFC South.
