Last updated on Monday, November 30, 2009

(HOUSTON, TX) - For the fifth-straight game, the Indianapolis Colts overcame a fourth-quarter deficit to pull out a win to remain unbeaten.

For the second time in four games, the Houston Texans were the victims as the Horseshoes overcame a 17-point deficit to pull out a 35-27 win in Houston.

Peyton Manning threw for 244 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions while Clint Session delivered a key play on defense, intercepting a Matt Schaub pass and returning it 27 yards for a score in the fourth quarter.

The Colts became champions of the AFC South while flying home from Houston.

The Colts' victory over the Texans combined by the Jacksonville Jaguars' 20-3 loss to the Forty-Niners in San Francisco gave the Horseshoes the division title.

It is the sixth time since the league went to the current divisional format in 2002 that the Colts have been champions of the South.

Indianapolis holds a three-game lead in the race for the top seed in the AFC playoffs and home-field advantage through the AFC championship game.

The Colts are 11-0 as they host the Tennessee Titans on Sunday afternoon.
