INDIANAPOLIS — Carson Wentz threw two touchdown passes, Jonathan Taylor ran for another score and the Indianapolis defense protected a big second-half lead to help put away Houston 31-3.

The Texans have lost five straight overall and six of the last seven in the series.

Houston never had a chance after Wentz threw a 28-yard TD pass to Mo Alie-Cox for a 17-3 third-quarter lead. Taylor, who rushed for 145 yards on 14 carries, made it 24-3 on a 4-yard scoring run.

The Texans turned the ball over three times in the game and didn't force any turnovers. David Mills threw two interceptions and David Johnson lost a fumble. Mills was also sacked two times.

Brandin Cooks hauled in nine of 13 targets for 89 yards, leading all receivers in the game.
