Familiar foe awaits Colts in playoffs



*Hilton led the NFL this season with five touchdown catches on throws that were more than 20 yards downfield.

*WR Reggie Wayne finished the year leading the team in receiving yards (1,355) and surpassed Marvin Harrison for the most consecutive seasons leading the team with six. Wayne also led the team in receptions (106) this season and tied Harrison (six) for the most consecutive seasons leading the team in catches.

*Wayne totaled four receptions against Houston and continued his NFL record of 64 straight games with three-or-more catches.

*RB Vick Ballard finished the game with 27 carries for 78 yards and tallied a one-yard touchdown.

*OLB Dwight Freeney recorded his first sack of the game in the third quarter when he dropped Matt Schaub for a six-yard loss. The sack gives him 17.5 for his career against Houston, the most against any opponent in his career. The sack also gives him 5.5 against Schaub, the third most against any quarterback in his career (7.0 – Steve McNair and David Carr).

*ILB Jamaal Westerman added the team’s third sack of the game and his first this season when he dropped Matt Schaub in the third quarter. He now has 5.5 sacks for his career.

*CB Vontae Davis tallied two interceptions against the Texans and has recorded three in his last two games. His first interception led to a Colts touchdown and his second allowed the Colts to run the clock out for the victory. Davis’ two interceptions marked the second time this season a Colts defender picked off two-or-more passes (Darius Butler, 2 at Jacksonville).

*RB Deji Karim returned a kickoff 101 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter to give the Colts a 21-16 lead. The return is tied for the fourth-longest in franchise history, the longest in Indianapolis Colts history (1984 to present) and the longest since Cotton Speyrer’s 101-yard return in 1973. The kickoff return for a touchdown is the team’s first dating back to December 19, 2010 (Tyjuan Hagler vs. Jacksonville).
