ANIMATED: Houston Texans Get Ricochet First Down

It looked like the Indianapolis Colts were going to get a stop late in the fourth quarter, until a T.J. Yates pass ricocheted off a few Colts defenders and Houston Texans wide receiver Jacoby Jones caught the football to run the ball for the first down.

Peyton, your thoughts?

As you can see the ball bounces off of Antoine Bethea's shoulder pad right into Jacoby Jones. Due to that first down on the drive, it allowed the Texans to get into position to kick a field goal, pushing their lead over the one win Colts to 16-12 late in the fourth quarter. In a game that's been a battle of field goals, the Colts will actually have to score a touchdown to win.
