The Indianapolis Colts won their fourth consecutive game on Thursday night as they beat the Houston Texans 33-28. Here are the best pictures from the game.

The Colts held on despite a late rally by the Texans to win their fourth consecutive game on Thursday night, as Andrew Luck shone once again.

Luck completed 25 of 44 passes for 370 yards and three touchdowns, with one interception on the night as he saw his side hold on to win 33-28.

Indianapolis raced into a 24-0 lead at the end of the first-quarter as their AFC South rivals couldn't cope with their fast start, with wide receiver T.Y. Hilton influential downfield.

Hilton ended the game with nine receptions for a huge 223 yards and one touchdown, and he proved to be a major weapon for Luck once more.

J.J. Watt was as effective as ever at the line of scrimmage but he can't carry a team on his own, and the Texans didn't make enough use of the ball on offence.

Watt scored his third touchdown of the season as he returned a fumble 45 yards in the fourth-quarter, and finished with seven tackles - two of those being sacks, and also deflected three passes.

Fumbles late in the game on offence cost the Texans (3-3) the game as they needed a touchdown to win, but it was the Colts who ended victorious as they move to 4-2 for the season.
