Colts lower the Boom

Luck, Hilton lead Colts past previously unbeaten Seahawks

(Continued)

On the next snap, Luck saw Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman sitting on the out route against Hilton. The receiver released deep and took off down the sideline. Luck hit him in stride, and Hilton made a quick juke on safety Earl Thomas before gliding into the end zone for a 73-yard score.

“When T.Y. is running fast, not many guys can catch him,” Luck said. “He had some space. The line did a great job protecting. In those situations, give him a ball that he doesn’t have to slow down for and see what happens. When he gets the ball in his hands, good things happen. It turns into a punt return. When he starts running, good things happen.”

The touchdown seemed to spark the Colts, and they took the lead for the first time early in the second quarter. Lawrence Guy blocked a 48-yard field goal attempt, and Delano Howell raced with the loose ball 61 yards for a touchdown and a 14-12 lead.

Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson — who finished 15-of-31 for 210 yards with two scores and one interception and also rushed 13 times for 102 yards — coolly answered with a 12-play, 82-yard scoring drive. His 28-yard pass to a diving Jermaine Kearse gave the Seahawks a 19-14 lead.

Adam Vinatieri added a 41-yard field goal with 58 seconds left in the half, and Steven Hauschka hit a pair of field goals to start the third quarter and put the Seahawks in front 25-17.

That’s when Luck and Hilton struck again, with the quarterback lobbing a beautiful 29-yard touchdown pass into the end zone to cap a 10-play, 80-yard drive. A 2-point conversion pass failed, and the Colts still trailed 25-23.

Hauschka added another field goal to push the Seahawks lead back out to 28-23 heading into the fourth quarter.

On the game-determining drive, Luck completed all three of his third-down conversions. The first was aided by a pass interference call against Sherman, the second was a 12-yard completion to Hilton and the last was a 3-yard pass to Reggie Wayne that was originally ruled short and overturned on review.
