INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - The Houston Texans found the right time to snap their 3-game losing streak when they found a way to beat the Indianapolis Colts 22-17 at Lucas Oil Field. With their overtime win earlier this season, the Texans managed to sweep the Colts for the first time in franchise history.

The Texans defense came to play as they forced Andrew Luck into three turnovers. He threw two interceptions on the day and Jedeveon Clowney forced a fumble when he sacked Luck in the red zone.

The win helped keep the Texans in first place in the AFC South with a 7-6 record. The Tennessee Titans who beat the Denver Broncos kept pace by improving to 7-6 as well, but the Texans have a perfect 4-0 record in the division so they own all tiebreakers for the division title.

Next up for Houston will be division rival the Jacksonville Jaguars. They host the Jags at NRG Stadium on Sunday, Dec. 18.
