Colts win in OT for first road win

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Andrew Luck threw a 16-yard touchdown pass to Vick Ballard at 4:49 of overtime and the surprising Indianapolis Colts beat the Tennessee Titans 19-13 on Sunday.

The Colts (4-3) have beaten Tennessee in seven of eight overall and seven of the past 10 in Nashville. It was Indianapolis' first road win of the season.

The Colts did it with Luck leading a pair of 80-yard touchdown drives. The top pick overall in April's draft set up Delone Carter's 1-yard TD run that tied it up at 13 with 3:24 left in the fourth quarter.

In overtime, Ballard capped the drive, taking a screen pass and going up the left side where he jumped toward the goal line for the TD.

The Titans (3-5) ended a two-game winning streak.
