Colts upset Texans for second straight win

NDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Reggie Wayne caught a 1-yard touchdown pass from Dan Orlovsky with 19 seconds left and the Indianapolis Colts beat the Houston Texans 19-16 Thursday night.

The Colts (2-13) have now won two straight, both against division foes, behind Orlovsky, the former Texans quarterback who lost his first nine NFL starts.

AFC South champion Houston hardly looked playoff-ready. It settled for two red-zone field goals, didn't convert a third down until getting a lucky bounce late in the fourth quarter, its running game was stymied late and the defense helped the Colts with three penalties on the decisive drive.

The Texans fell to 0-10 in Indianapolis.

Arian Foster had 23 carries for 158 yards and scored on the Texans' only touchdown on the third play of the game.
