Oakland scored the first points of the game on the first play from scrimmage in the second quarter and took a 7-0 lead.

On the ensuing possession, quarterback Andrew Luck led the offense on a nine-play, 75-yard drive that resulted in a 24-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Donte Moncrief.

The Raiders then manufactured 26-unanswered points to maintain a 33-7 lead midway through the third quarter.

Luck threw his second touchdown of the game to running back Robert Turbin as the Colts trailed 33-14 entering the final frame.

With 7:40 left in the game, Luck scampered for an 11-yard touchdown run and converted the two-point conversion on a pass to wide receiver T.Y. Hilton (four receptions for 105 yards) to narrow the deficit to 33-22. Kicker Adam Vinatieri then connected on a 42-yard field goal with 2:33 left.

The Indianapolis defense tried to stop the Oakland offense on the next series, but the Raiders converted on third-and-eight to seal the win.
