Colts' Luck comes through in clutch

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Frank Gore rushed for two touchdowns and Jordan Todman had a tone-setting 99-yard return on the opening kickoff for the Colts.

Andrew Luck shook off two first-quarter interceptions. The Colts, who had allowed an NFL-worst 31 sacks, gave their quarterback decent protection.

"It wasn't the best start with my game offensively, with my game, two interceptions. Like anything you've got to move on," Luck said. "Then (we) made enough plays at the end."

Indianapolis heads into a bye week with a confidence-building victory after surviving Aaron Rodgers' comeback attempt. His 3-yard touchdown pass to Randall Cobb with 3:29 left got Green Bay within five, capping a 14-point spurt in four-plus minutes.

The Colts held on after Luck dodged a potential sack by blitzing safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to throw a 20-yard pass to tight end Jack Doyle on third and 10 with 3:07 left.
