HOUSTON — Houston coach Gary Kubiak collapsed leaving the field at halftime and was taken by ambulance to a hospital, and the Indianapolis Colts rallied for a 27-24 victory over the Texans on Sunday night.

Kubiak hunched over and dropped to his knees at the 24-yard line and was immediately surrounded by medical personnel. He was taken off the field on a stretcher.

The Texans didn’t say what was wrong with Kubiak, but did say he didn’t have a heart attack. The team said the 52-year-old coach was conscious and was with his family as he was taken to the hospital.

Andrew Luck got off to a slow start before throwing three second-half touchdowns to T.Y. Hilton to overcome an 18-point halftime deficit and give the Colts (6-2) the victory.
