J.J. Watt Forces Fumble On One-Yard Line Ending Colts Scoring Drive

Despite facing a 10-0 deficit towards the end of the first quarter, the Indianapolis Colts put together a strong defensive effort to force the Texans into a three and out, compounded by a generous 29 yard punt to the Texans 38-yard line.

The Colts were nearly forced into a field goal opportunity after an incomplete third down pass on Houston's 15-yard line, but welcomed a gift from the gods benefiting from a defensive hold that gave the Colts an automatic first down.

Eventually quarterback Andrew Luck handed off to Mewelde Moore on second and goal from the Texans one-yard line, losing the football on a J.J. Watt hit, recovered by Dobbins at the one-yard line.
