NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WISH) - The streak is over. High drama at LP Field in Nashville where the Colts needed two late 80 yard touchdown drives to victory including a high-flying diving score from rookie Vick Ballard to win in overtime on a play that had everyone stunned.
"I threw it and saw a Titans uniform flash by and thought oh God, this may be the end of the game the wrong way," said Andrew Luck. "Saw Vick catch it, saw someone else drive a Titan player into the ground, and what a wonderful individual effort by Vick Ballard to get it in there."
It was Ballard's first NFL touchdown. An overtime game winner that will hold a special place for the rookie.
"Yeah, and to top it off, my dad"s here, he saw my first touchdown, and it came in overtime, can't get any better than that," said the rookie from Mississippi State.
Cory Redding expected victory.
"If we've got to play more than sixty minutes, that's fine. We showed our heart, true team football today in a hostile environment , couldn't ask for a better way to end that too."
"This is one we can stuck our foot down and day this is where we start, just no steps back, keep doing what we can do and progress," added top tackler Jerrell Freeman.
Jerraud Powers was thrilled with the outcome.
"When you can hold a team to 13 points and win in overtime, especially since its like two wins for us. Big AFC win, big divisional win, we're 1-1 sitting alone in second place in our division."
The win gives the Colts a 4-3 record, and with two winnable games ahead, the playoff talk could be heating up soon.
