Colts Take Defensive Approach To Beat Browns 27-6
Indianapolis starters allowed only four first downs and three plays run in their territory, didn't yield a touchdown for the second straight week and even scored one on Larry Asante's late 48-yard interception return. Andrew Luck, meanwhile, threw for two touchdowns to lead the Colts past Cleveland 27-6.
It was a drastic improvement over what Colts fans witnessed in this venue two weeks ago, when Buffalo's rookie quarterbacks EJ Manuel and Jeff Tuel dinked-and-dunked their way to a 44-20 victory that drew the ire of team owner Jim Irsay.
Of course in that game, most of the starters exited before the end of the first quarter.
This time, Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden was consistently harassed and wound up 12 of 25 for 105 yards - just four days after being chosen the opening-day starter.
