Osweiler shook off a tough start to throw two touchdown passes in less than 2 minutes in the fourth quarter as Houston (4-2) erased a 14-point deficit to tie it at 23 with 54 seconds left. He found Lamar Miller on a 10-yard catch-and-run TD with 2:47 remaining and, after a stop by the defense, connected with C.J. Fiedorowicz on a 26-yarder that tied it.
Houston’s defense forced a punt by Indianapolis to send it to OT.
Luck had a 22-yard touchdown throw in the first quarter and pushed the lead to 20-9 when he dashed into the end zone untouched on a 14-yard run early in the fourth.
Miller scored his first touchdown as a Texan on a 1-yard run on Houston’s first drive of the second half, but the extra point failed to leave the Texans down 13-9.
The Colts built led 13-0 in the second quarter after two field goals by Adam Vinatieri and a touchdown catch by Jack Doyle. Osweiler and Houston’s offense struggled to get going and early and Osweiler had negative-9 yards passing in the first quarter. The Texans cut it to 13-3 at halftime on Novak’s 27-yard field goal.
