Peyton Manning had his usual strong game, leading the Colts past the Texans.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Peyton Manning threw two touchdown passes and Donald Brown ran for another score Sunday as Indianapolis stayed in the playoff hunt with a 34-24 victory over Jacksonville.
The Colts (8-6) share the AFC South lead with Jacksonville (8-6) and can clinch a seventh division title in eight years by winning their last two games.
Jacksonville had a chance to secure the title with a victory, but again failed to sweep the season series. The Jags have never won two straight against Indy.
Manning was 29 of 39 for 229 yards with no interceptions for the second straight game.
Indy also ended Maurice Jones-Drew's streak of consecutive 100-yard games at six. He carried 15 times for 46 yards, a career low against Indy.
