Texans come close, but still can't beat Colts

BY foxsports • November 9, 2009

The Colts have no problems with close games — as long as they keep winning them.

Peyton Manning delivered another milestone performance, Joseph Addai produced a second straight winning score, and the Colts found another unconventional way to win when Houston's Kris Brown missed a 42-yard field goal as time expired, keeping Indy's winning streak intact 20-17.

"I think that's the mark of a great football team," center Jeff Saturday said, referring to the close calls. "We've won eight games so far, and we're ahead in our division, which is really our main focus and goal."

The implications of Sunday's victory are monumental.
