Andrew Luck threw one touchdown pass and ran for another score and the defense held on late as the Colts beat Baltimore 20-13 on Sunday.

Luck was 32 of 49 for 312 yards with two interceptions, but scored the decisive points on a nifty 13-yard scoring run with 8:56 left in the game.

Indianapolis (3-2) has won three straight. Baltimore (3-2) lost for the first time since Week 1.

It was a strange day. The teams combined for seven turnovers, and Joe Flacco was sacked four times — one more than he had been all season.

But Luck's 6-yard TD pass to Dwayne Allen early in the third quarter made it 13-3, his fourth-quarter scoring run was good enough and the Colts defense stopped Baltimore's last chance in the final minute.
