Video: Jaelen Strong Makes Amazing Catch To Set Up Texans' Game Winning Field Goal

Jaelen Strong made a fantastic catch along the sideline to set up the game-winning field goal for the Houston Texans against the Indianapolis Colts.

DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller get most of the press in the Texans' receiving corps, but it was Jaelen Strong that made the key play in Houston's overtime win over the AFC South rival Colts.

Strong made an impressive grab along the sideline on a great pass from Brock Osweiler.

The 36-yard completion was Strong's only grab of the game, but it may have been the important of the night for the Texans. The play led to a 33-yard game-winner by Nick Novak two plays later, putting Houston past Indianapolis 26-23.

Osweiler finished 25-for-39 for 269 yards and two touchdowns. Running back Lamar Miller was the star for Houston, rushing for 149 yards and a touchdown, and adding a receiving touchdown. The two scores were Miller's first of the season, to the delight of his fantasy owners.

The Texans are now 4-2, and sit one game ahead of the Tennessee Titans in the AFC South race. The Jacksonville Jaguars are 2-3, while the Colts are in fourth, at 2-4 after this loss.

The Texans travel to Denver next weekend, where Brock Osweiler will face off against his old team, the Denver Broncos.
