Texans v. Colts Open Thread Part Dos: Keenum-To-Johnson Has Houston Up 21-3

The Man. The Myth. The Legend. - Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Discuss the Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, and their Week Nine match-up live in Battle Red Blog's second real-time open game day thread.

Well then, that certainly was an electric half, wasn't it?

The Hero of Houston, quarterback Case Keenum, has found Andre Johnson for three touchdowns. The first, a 62-yarder, had Houston up 7-0.

Indianapolis drove the ball, mostly on the backs of Stanford buddies Andrew Luck and Coby Fleener, but then 2012 NFL Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt blocked a field goal which helped set up Keenum-to-Johnson: The Sequel, a 41-yard strike.

A Keenum scramble on third down set up a five-yard fade route to, who else, Andre Johnson for the third touchdown between the duo. This is the first time in Johnson's career that he has had three touchdowns in one game.

Let's get some stats out here. On the half, Keenum is 9-of-17 for 208 yards and three touchdowns. Johnson has seven catches for 190 yards and three touchdowns. Ben Tate, the man with four broken ribs, has 14 carries for 47 yards. Defensively, Watt, Antonio Smith, and Joe Mays each have a sack a piece. Most importantly, the Texans haven't been penalized nor turned the ball over.

The Houston Texans are up 21-3 as we enter the second half. Let's settle in on this fine Sunday night. The stars at night certainly look bright in the heart of Texas.
