The Indianapolis Colts appear to have a potent running game, a
OAKLAND Pierre Desir Color Rush Jersey , Calif. (AP) — n offensive line that can protect and a record-setting kicker.Combined all that with a healthy Andrew Luck and the results are impressive.Luck threw his third touchdown pass of the game to break a tie with 5:28 to go, Adam Vinatieri set the career scoring mark and the Colts beat the Oakland Raiders 42-28 on Sunday to win in back-to-back weeks for the first time in three years.“I think we’re believing it now, I really do,” Luck said. “I think we’re proving to ourselves that we can do it, that this is a winning formula.”Marlon Mack ran for a career-high 132 yards and two touchdowns, breaking the personal mark he set last week against Buffalo with 126 yards. The Colts finished with 222 yards rushing and didn’t allow a sack for the third straight game as the investments made in the offensive line are paying off.The Colts are the first team since the 1970 merger to go consecutive games with at least 200 yards rushing, no sacks and no giveaways.“I think you’d like to establish your identity in Week 1 and get that going right from the start,” coach Frank Reich said. “On offense, it’s taken us a few weeks to get that going, but right now I like where we’re at.”Mack’s second TD came after Doug Martin lost a fumble for Oakland and sealed the victory as the Colts won in consecutive weeks for the first time in three years.Luck connected with all three of his tight ends with the 10-yard pass to Jack Doyle putting the Colts (3-5) up 35-28. Luck connected earlier in the game on passes to Mo Alie-Cox and Eric Ebron and finished with 239 yards against an overmatched defense for the Raiders (1-6).Derek Carr threw three TD passes and ran for a fourth just days after Oakland traded his top receiver Amari Cooper to Dallas . But it wasn’t enough to prevent another loss in what is quickly becoming a lost season to begin coach Jon Gruden’s second stint with the team.“I’m not going to give up. Period,” Gruden said. “I just hope Raiders fans out there understand we’re doing everything we can. I know it gets ugly at times, but in a lot of ways I’m excited about the future.”The Colts started fast with Mo Alie-Cox making a one-handed 26-yard touchdown catch and Vinatieri adding a field goal to make it 10-0 before the Raiders finally found their stride.“He swallowed the ball with his hands,” Luck said. “It was truly like there was a gravitational pull flopped it in there. What an awesome job our tight ends group does to complement this offense, complement the wideouts and to complement each other.”Carr threw a pair of touchdown passes in the second quarter to put Oakland on top and added a 1-yard sneak for a score on fourth down to make it 21-13 early in the third.The game went back and forth from there with Luck tying it with a 20-yard touchdown pass to Eric Ebron and a 2-point conversion pass to Chester Rogers.Carr then avoided a sack before finding Brandon LaFell for a 6-yard touchdown late in the third before the Colts tied it back up early in the fourth on Mack’s 4-yard run .MOST POINTS IN NFL HISTORYVinatieri set the record as the NFL’s top all-time scorer in the first half. He kicked a 26-yard field goal in the first quarter to tie Morten Andersen with 2,544 points and then added a 25-yarder late in the second to set the record . Vinatieri scored three more points, giving him 2,550 for his career.“He’d done it for so long and for so many years and so prolifically, that I just thought, ‘Man https://www.coltsfanshop.com/Kemoko-Turay-Jersey , it’s untouchable.'” Vinatieri said. “But I guess as you keep going, you stack years upon years, the numbers start stacking up.”RARE RUSHCarr scored on a 1-yard sneak on fourth down in the third quarter for the Raiders for his first career touchdown run. Oakland hadn’t had a quarterback run for a TD since Terrelle Pryor scored on a 93-yard run against Pittsburgh on Oct. 27, 2013. Only the Chargers had gone longer without a TD run for a QB.“I had a dance planned, but they threw a flag,” Carr said. “I’ll have to get another one.”BACK TO BACKMack followed up last week’s big game with another strong performance. This is just the sixth time the Colts have had a 100-yard rusher during Luck’s seven NFL seasons and the first time since Joseph Addai did it in 2007 that a back topped the century mark in consecutive games.INJURIESThe Raiders lost backup OL T.J. Clemmings to a knee injury in the second half. … Colts S Mike Mitchell left in the second half with a calf injury.UP NEXTColts: Host Jacksonville on Nov. 11.Raiders: Visit 49ers on Thursday night. INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — After Andrew Luck quickly moved the Indianapolis Colts into position for one final, desperation heave Sunday at Philadelphia, he came out.With 5 seconds left and Indy at its 46-yard line, coach Frank Reich put in Jacoby Brissett.In some respects, the move made perfect sense. Brissett had the stronger arm and given the slim chance of winning the game on such a play, it didn’t make sense to risk everything with someone returning from major shoulder surgery.Soon, the questions started popping up, too, and Luck attempted to put them to rest.“I know I’m at a level where I can make all the throws and I feel confident that I’m going out there with my full arsenal,” Luck said Wednesday. “I don’t think anything is holding me back. But again you can always get better and I don’t think I’m anywhere near scratching the surface of realizing my full potential.”Clearly, this has not been the same Luck who started his career with three straight Pro Bowl appearances.His completion percentage (68.5) through three games would be a career best. His yardage and touchdowns are down slightly, while his interception rate continues to hover at about the same pace. He’s been more efficient on third downs and maybe slightly less efficient in the red zone.All of those traits showed up in Sunday’s loss at Super Bowl champion Philadelphia, where Luck went 25 of 40 and wound up with 164 yards — more than half of those yards coming on the final two series with Luck attempting to rally the Colts from a 20-16 deficit.Luck has thrown for fewer than 200 yards 15 times in 73 career starts, though it’s only the fifth time he’s failed to top 200 yards in consecutive games.Many wonder whether the changes are a result of Reich’s offensive philosophy; limitations on Luck; a series of injuries to Indy’s receiving corps and offensive line; a function of still getting acclimated to this new offense; or some combination.“I feel free to call anything,” he said. “There’s no doubt there are times when you’re going on the road and you’re in a hostile environment Anthony Castonzo Jersey , you might try to get it out early. But you can’t stay in that mode. You can’t play scared.”The Colts (1-2) insist they’re not playing it safe and point to downfield throws that have been made — just not always converted — including a 33-yard pass interference penalty on the Eagles that set up Indy’s only touchdown at Philly.Playing two of three road games hasn’t helped, nor has facing three solid pass-rushing teams with J.J. Watt, Jadeveon Clowney and winless Houston on deck.Indy could again be missing left tackle Anthony Castonzo, who has yet to play because of an injured hamstring; Pro Bowl tight end Jack Doyle, one of Luck’s favorite targets who missed last week’s game with a hip injury; and likely right tackle Joe Haeg, expected to miss a couple of weeks after leaving last week’s game with an injured left ankle.Even Luck showed up on Wednesday’s injury report with a sore groin. But it didn’t keep him out of practice.None of it has changed Indy’s approach.“We definitely want more chunk (plays) and we want to be able to — we do take what the defense gives us,” offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni said. “If they are taking away our initial read and we want to push the ball down the field, we want to play smart football.”Naturally, it was expected Luck would need some time to shake off the rust after missing 26 games over the previous three seasons. But if he and his receivers hooked up on a couple more plays, perhaps he wouldn’t have to answer any questions.“Honestly, I don’t know if there’s scrutiny or not,” he said. “But I think we, as an offensive unit, we put a lot of pressure on ourselves to do well, and certainly in the last game we did not do well. The red zone sticks out in my mind more than anything.”Notes: Running back Marlon Mack (hamstring) and defensive lineman Denico Autry (ankle) did limited work at Wednesday’s practice. … Defensive linemen Tarell Basham (personal reason) and Hassan Ridgeway (calf) did not practice. Also sitting out were Castonzo, Doyle and Haeg, tight end Eric Ebron (shoulder and knee), safeties Malik Hooker (hip and groin) and Clayton Geathers (knee), and cornerback Quincy Wilson (concussion).
