Instant Reaction: Colts Hold Off Ravens For 20-13 Win

After a rough first half for both offenses, the Ravens came out of halftime and immediately turned the ball over, setting up the Colts offense.

Andrew Luck found tight end Dwayne Allen for a six yard touchdown, giving the Colts a 13-3 lead early in the third quarter.

Baltimore's defense kept the Ravens afloat while the offense struggled all day. With a goal to go situation for the Colts offense, the Ravens tipped Luck's pass at the line, intercepting it and keeping them in the game late in the third.

They forced another takeaway a few minutes later, setting up a Ravens field goal to get them within a touchdown at 13-6.

The offenses finally got rolling in the fourth, trading touchdowns within a matter of minutes on a Luck 13 yard scramble, followed by a Justin Forsett 11 yard run.

Turning Point: After the Ravens recovered a fumble to give Flacco and the offense a chance to tie the game with a late score, a fourth down pass intended for Torrey Smith was thrown just off his fingertips.

With no timeouts left for the Ravens, the Colts were able to run out the clock for the win.

Key Stat: The Ravens turned the ball over three times today, after totaling just three turnovers in their first four games.

Ravens MVP: C.J. Mosley - 13 tackles, one tipped pass

It's not often that a defensive player is the MVP, especially on a losing team, but the Ravens offense was so bad that no one deserved it. Mosley did however, as his tipped pass led to an interception that kept Baltimore in the game until the end.

Colts MVP: Andrew Luck - 312 yards passing, two total touchdowns, two interceptions

It wasn't the best game for luck, as he turned it over twice, but he did enough to lead the Colts to their third win of the year.

What's Next?

The Ravens head to Tampa Bay, where they will look to get back on track with a 3-2 overall record. They will look to get the offense back on track after a three turnover performance in this one.

The Colts have a short week when they travel to Houston for Thursday Night Football. At 3-2 and on a two game win streak, the Colts will look to make their move into first place in the AFC South with a win.
