Colts quarterback Andrew Luck had another uneven day, going 19 of 32 for only 180 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception. While Luck has cut down on the turnovers, he’s not exactly lighting the world on fire. If anything, it might be time to buy-low.
Texans running back Ben Tate had a decent day gaining 72 yards on 16 carries for a 4.5 YPC. He added three catches for 20 yards. Houston fell behind early which eliminated the running game. Tate should sign somewhere else next year where he’ll finally have the opportunity to carry the load.
With Colts incumbent running back Donald Brown got injured, Trent Richardson was forced back in. He had 64 carries on 19 carries for a very Trent Richardson-esque 3.4 YPC. He did add 38 yards on four catches but Richardson is what he is.
Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton busted out (a little) with eight catches for 78 yards on 12 targets. The talk before the game was of Da’Rick Rogers but all Rogers did was open up the secondary for Hilton. Hilton is the long-term solution.
