Luck throws for 4 TDs, Indy routs Giants 40-24
EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (AP) — Quarterback Andrew Luck threw for four touchdowns and the Colts’ defense kept Eli Manning and the Giants off balance in Indianapolis’ 40-24 romp in the NFL on Monday.
With his team-record seventh consecutive 300-yard game, Luck led the Colts (6-3) to a lopsided win one week after a 51-34 loss to Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers. Unlike the way Roethlisberger toyed with their defense in that game, the Colts didn’t let Manning get going in handing New York (3-5) its third straight defeat.
Luck hit Coby Fleener for a 32-yard TD in the first half. He also had scoring throws of 31 yards to T.Y. Hilton, 40 yards to Reggie Wayne and 2 yards to Dwayne Allen in the third period.
Adam Vinatieri added four field goals and is perfect on 20 tries this year.
It was the eighth time this season that Luck had thrown for more than 300 yards and the 17th time in his three pro seasons. He was 25 for 46 for 354 yards, helping the Colts head into their bye week with a two-game lead on Houston on the AFC South division.
Wayne surpassed James Lofton for career yards receiving in the NFL and has 14,070 in his 14-season career.
