In a game full of special moments, including immense support from Colts fans and a special pre-game presentation on the Lucas Oil Stadium jumbo-tron that brought Chuck Pagano to tears, there was plenty of good feeling. However, one moment stood out. After the Colts’ 11th consecutive win over the Houston Texans, Pagano showed his true colors in the team’s locker room, something he’s never failed to reveal during his battle with Leukemia. If this doesn’t put a smile on your face, then I don’t know what will.
It’s probably the best story in the NFL this season, even more so because the Colts are heading tot he playoffs after drafting No. 1 overall in 2012. The Colts will take their win at home into the AFC Playoffs, where they will take on the Baltimore Ravens in the Wild Card round, and continue to stay Chuckstrong.

The Houston Texans controlled their own fate and threw it to the wind. If the Texans won they would win the number one seed in the AFC, now if the New England Patriots win, the Texans could slide to the third seed if Denver also wins.
The return of Chuck Pagano sent an inspired Indianapolis Colts team into battle with nothing to gain playoff standing wise, but they wanted to win...
I saw a monkey smoking a cigarette and drinking a beer in Cancun, Mexico so not much surprises me with these things. This Monkey riding a dog at the Colts game was just hilarious though. The thing is so small, yet it looks like warrior riding a horse back in the day. Just good stuff. Check out the video below. Chuck Pagano also made his return to the NFL in this game...
Arian Foster along with thousands of other Colts fans paid tribute to coach Chuck Pagano in his return to football today. Pagano has been out all year fighting cancer and came back for their final game of the regular season. Foster had a 13 yard touchdown run in the third quarter, then headed over to the Chuck Strong sign and did his patented prayer celebration. An even bigger...

Houston Texans star second-year defensive end J.J. Watt leads the league with 20.5 sacks this season.
While Watt is a heavy favorite to win the Defensive Player of the Year award (49ers linebacker Aldon Smith — who has 19.5 sacks — is the other), he also believes the race between Broncos QB Peyton Manning and Vikings RB Adrian Peterson for the NFL’s Most Valuable Player should...

After a struggling Texans team fell 28-16 to the Colts on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium, dropping its third contest in four attempts and failing to secure home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs, the veteran Houston quarterback was mostly his normal game-day self.
Matt Schaubs voice was subdued, he spoke of personal frustration and team failure, and he challenged himself...
The Houston Texans have declared FS Alan Ball, OT Andrew Gardner, OG Antoine Caldwell, LB Brooks Reed, OG Cody White, CB Stanford Routt, DL Terrell McClain inactive for Week 17.
Tweet In what is a welcomed sight, Chuck Pagano is back on the Lucas Oil Stadium sideline as head coach of the Indianapolis Colts for today’s matchup with the Houston Texans. Pagano’s diagnosis of leukemia in September has been well documented and the outpouring of support he, his family, and the Colts organization have received [...]
The Houston Texans choked. Simple as that. If the Texans do not win the AFC and fall to either New England or Denver on the road, they only have themselves to blame. Two games they had! Two games (in Edward Rooney from Ferris Bueller voice). One against the one dimensional Vikings and the … Continue reading »
The last defensive player to be named NFL most valuable player was the New York Giants' Lawrence Taylor in 1986.
If J.J. Watt's Houston Texans teammates had their say, he'd end that streak of offensive MVPs this season.
"Oh yeah, of course I hear it. Being a defensive player, I want a defensive player to win it, and I think I have as good a chance as any,"...
As we enter the final week of the 2012 NFL regular season game, the Houston Texans meet their old (in Texans existence terms, that is,) foes the Indianapolis Colts for the second time in three weeks. Having just met two Sundays ago, both teams have a really good idea of what to expect from the other. Game planning and player motivation will be at fevered pitch, fans of each team...
