It's hard to complain about a team that hasn't lost a game all season--after all, an 11-0 record is as good as it gets. It might be nice though--or at least a little less anxiety-inducing--if we weren't kept holding our breath until the last minutes of the game. In today's match against the Houston Texans, the Indianapolis Colts didn't take the lead in the game until only 8 minutes were remaining. That's when they edged ahead of the Texans by one, 21-20.
But although it was nearly halfway through the fourth quarter, the Colts were just warming up. Less than 20 seconds later, an interception near the 25-yard line was good for another touchdown, moving the Colts ahead 28-20. A recovered fumble with 2:52 remaining on the clock led to yet another touchdown and a 15-point lead.
Houston finally got back into the game, scoring a touchdown with 18 seconds left on the clock, but it was too little, too late. And so the Colts picked up their 11th straight regular-season win, 35-27. The stampede continues, and it couldn't feel better!
