The Indianapolis Colts beat the Houston Texans by a score of 19-16 at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The Indianapolis Colts have defeated AFC South leaders the Houston Texans 19-16 at Lucas Oil Stadium to secure their second win of the NFL regular season.

Texans linebacker Brian Cushing sacked Colts QB Dan Orlovsky and forced a fumble on Indianapolis's first offensive play of the game to set his side up inside the red zone.

Running back Arian Foster took just two handoffs to put Houston ahead inside the first minute.

Kicker Neil Rackers converted the extra point before adding a field goal, while opposite number Adam Vinatieri was able to answer with two of his own for the hosts before the half.

The kickers exchanged a couple of field goals each after the interval, before a last-minute pass interference penalty put Orlovsky in position to pass for a one-yard touchdown to receiver Reggie Wayne.
