Lackluster first half
too many missed practices
keep Colts off balance


Ten games into year
offense rounding into shape
no punts second half


Persistence pays off
22 rushing attempts
105 yards


Big, bad Darryl Reid
Lineman, fullback, special teams
Swiss Army football


Missing five starters
depleted secondary
gashed on big run plays


More than manager
Manning conducts offense like
a virtuoso


Notice has been served
Harrison's still dangerous
Nine catches, one score


Rather than malice
the Texans inspire pity
no hated rival
