18 Observations From Sunday by John Harris, Houstontexans.com

I wish I had a nice, neat way to encapsulate what we just saw at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday. This one was just so all over the place, but in the end, it was joyous. I did my best to keep my cool throughout the game, but man, oh man, like many wearing the bull head on our chest, it wasn’t easy. As we drove away from Lucas Oil, though, the Texans had two wins over the Colts in a season for the first time ever. The 22-17 win over the Colts was definitely not for the faint of heart. Here are my observations from the exhilarating win over the Colts.

1. A congratulatory hat tip for inside linebacker Brian Cushing, who became the Texans all-time leading tackler on Sunday, finishing with six stops for the Texans defense. Considering he lost nearly two full years with injuries, this is an outstanding accomplishment for the eighth-year inside linebacker.

There are a lot of good things to take from the win over the Colts. The place in history for Cushing is certainly one of them. Truly one of the good guys in the league and now the leading tackler in franchise history. He’s going into the ring of honor when the Texans get one.

Strong placed on IR by Sarah Barshop, ESPN

The Houston Texans put wide receiver on injured reserve Saturday because of an ankle injury.

Strong injured his ankle Week 8 against the Detroit Lions and has been out since.

This is a disappointing way for the season to end for Strong. He had so much promise coming into the season and due to injuries he will not have much of anything to show for the 2016 campaign.
