Colts- Texans: Matt Schaub Gives Game Away | NFL Fantasy Football Rankings

Indianapolis Colts v Houston Texans

The Texans had a great opportunity to make a playoff surge with two straight games at home against the Titans and Colts. While the Texans started each game strong, they gave both games away late in the fourth quarter will unfortunate play.

Giving Away Playoff Dreams

The Colts were down until a 4th quarter touchdown from Peyton Manning to Dallas Clark. After that touchdown throw the Colts took the lead 21 to 20 and never looked back.

Matt Schaub could have been a hero but on the next drive, he threw an interception for a touchdown and the score was 28 to 20.

Then on the next drive Schaub fumbled the football and the Colts ran a touchdown in from 23-yards out to put the game away.

This was a very disappointing ending for the Texans for the third straight week in a row as they are now five and six on the season. Unless they can win out for the rest of the year the Texans will miss the playoffs once again.

Manning and Colts have Game Handed to Them

This was another shaky game for Manning and the Colts’ offense as they had to play from behind most of the game.

If this team is going to stay undefeated next week against the Titans one has to think they need to pick up their play for the future.

From a fantasy perspective, Manning has been slipping for the last month and today was just a continuation of his struggles. If fantasy owners with Manning hope to make a dent in the playoffs, they will need Manning to turn things around fast.
