Here's How Dan Orlovsky (With The Help Of The Houston Texans) Ruined Christmas For Colts Fans

Down 16-12 to the Houston Texans with 1:50 left in the game, no timeouts, and the ball on their own 22, the Indianapolis Colts would have been heavy dogs to win even with Peyton Manning playing quarterback. But win they did, thanks to the heroics of backup-backup QB Dan Orlovsky and some timely penalties by the Texans defense (who had their own incentive to lose). It put the Colts' #1 overall pick for the 2012 draft in serious jeopardy, put tears in the eyes of Colts fans who dreamed of a Luck-y future, and put a big smile on Manning's face. [NFL Network]
