The Colts still have the capability to be an offensive machine. Facing a lackluster Houston Texans' defense in their new digs after a hard fought victory against the ferocious Steelers in Pittsburgh seemed like a good time for the pistons to start firing on all cylinders for the one-mighty offense.
For thirty minutes, we were all left scratching our heads. The Colts managed just three field goals in the first half, and trailed 13-9. The half was peppered with dropped passes and missed opportunities. Apparently the Colts just needed to get warmed up.
In the second half, Peyton Manning and Joseph Addai spearheaded the Colts return to form as an offensive juggernaut. As I mentioned in the title, this was a vintage Colts performance -- one which would make the now defunct RCA Dome proud.
- Manning ended up completing 30 of 46 passes for 320 yards and two scores.
