Monday’s mean a wealth of information from ESPN Stats and Info.
Here’s the best of it on the Texans and Colts:
At 34-0, the Colts faced their largest halftime deficit in franchise history.
The Texans, now 3-16 all-time against the Colts, had never held the Colts to fewer than 19 points.
The Colts had scored under 10 points just once in their previous 107 games including the postseason.
Kerry Collins was seven-for-10 with 9.1 yards per attempt and a touchdown against the Texans’ base 3-4 defense. When the Texans had five or more defensive backs on the field, he was nine-for-21, with 5.0 yards per attempt.
That was the largest halftime point total in an NFL season opener since 1994 when the Colts led the Houston Oilers 35–0.
Collins lost more fumbles in the first quarter on Sunday (two) than Peyton Manning lost in his past 56 regular-season games combined (one), dating to November 2007.
