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
