Week 17 NFL Scores & Standings: Colts Win AFC South Yet Again, Texans Help Out

Tennessee Titans 20, Indianapolis Colts 23 – For a while, it looked like Indianapolis was doing everything it could to lose this game. The offense couldn’t make a play, Kerry Collins was able to find some open receivers, and they even turned it over to set up Tennessee for a game-winning drive in the fourth quarter.

However, the Colts defense would force a turnover and give Peyton Manning a chance to get the Colts some points. Always clutch Adam Viniateri drilled the game-winning field goal down the middle of the uprights to send Indianapolis to the AFC playoffs as the number three seed.

Jacksonville Jaguars 17, Houston Texans 34 – Even if Indy had lost, the Texans already had given them the AFC South Championship by destroying the injury-prone Jaguars.

Arian Foster had 180 rushing yards and two touchdowns to cap off a brilliant 2010 NFL season. Foster’s 1,616 yards also set a NFL record for most rushing yards by an undrafted player. Foster also set countless franchise single-season records for rushing yards, rushing touchdowns, total touchdowns, and yards from scrimmage to name a few.

The AFC South champion Colts will take on the sixth-seeded New York Jets this Saturday night in a Wild Card game. Houston will wait for the results of the de facto NFC West Championship Game before they know their NFL Draft positioning.
