Another comeback gives Colts control of AFC South
November 4, 2013 (AP) – Andrew Luck led the Indianapolis Colts to one impressive comeback on Sunday night. Now they’re out to prove they can be a pretty good front-runner, too.
After rallying the Colts from an 18-point third-quarter deficit to a 27-24 victory Sunday night at Houston, Indianapolis (6-2) now controls the AFC South. It leads Tennessee (4-4) by two games and two-time defending division champion Houston by four games with eight to play.
The Colts also are 2-0 in the division, winning at Jacksonville and Houston. They take on the Rams on Sunday and then face division foe Tennessee in a quick turnaround on Nov. 14.
It’s an unusual spot for this young team, which has spent most of the last two seasons playing catch-up.
