Flacco tosses TD pass as Ravens clip Colts

 


Baltimore?s Joe Flacco outplayed Indianapolis? Andrew Luck as the visiting Ravens emerged with a 20-19 win over the Colts on Monday night.


Both regular quarterbacks started and were followed to the field by two backups apiece. Flacco completed 7 of 9 passes for 72 yards and a 7-yard touchdown pass to John Brown.


Luck, who missed all of last season due to a right shoulder injury, played in a preseason game for the second time this season. He hit on 6 of 13 passes for 50 yards but threw an interception.


Ravens rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson was 7-for-15 for 49 yards, including a 7-yard scoring strike to Chris Moore.


Jackson also rushed four times for 26 yards. Baltimore?s Robert Griffin III completed 6 of 8 attempts for 31 yards.


Colts reserve QB Jacoby Brissett produced 172 passing yards on 14-of-23 passing. Indianapolis? third-stringer, Phillip Walker, was 2 of 4 for 26 yards with a 9-yard touchdown pass to Zach Pascal and an interception.


Pascal?s scoring grab pulled Indianapolis within 20-19 with 2:24 remaining, but Walker?s attempt to run for the two-point conversion failed.


Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri, 45, was successful on his lone field-goal attempt, from 57 yards.
