INDIANAPOLIS — Andrew Luck spent most of Sunday watching Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch run around.
But when the quarterback got a chance to make some plays, he rallied the Colts for yet another victory.
Luck threw two touchdowns and led the Colts on two time-consuming scoring drives in the fourth quarter to hand the Seahawks their first loss, 34-28.
"This is the most resilient team that I've ever been around," Indianapolis coach Chuck Pagano said. "They've got more grit than … any team I've been around."
This season has certainly tested the Colts.
Since a closer-than-expected Week 1 win over Oakland, they have lost three offensive starters to season-ending injuries and were upset at home by the Dolphins in Week 2.
But Indianapolis rebounded with three straight wins, including over NFC West powers San Francisco and Seattle.
On Sunday's decisive drive, Luck took advantage of a pass interference against cornerback Richard Sherman and Pagano winning a challenge on a third-down spot that turned a fourth down into a first down.
After consuming nearly seven minutes, he gave the ball to Donald Brown, who squirted through the middle for the 3-yard go-ahead touchdown run. Luck hit Reggie Wayne on the two-point conversion pass and took nearly five more minutes off the clock to set up Adam Vinatieri's game-sealing 49-yard field goal with 1:55 left.
"A win is a win if it was ugly, if it was great," said Luck, who recorded his ninth fourth-quarter comeback win among 21 career games. "To come back, you hold on for dear life. But a chance to beat a good team in front of our home fans, to get back on track at home, we take a lot of pride in that."
Seattle had won nine straight regular-season games dating to last season. But Sunday's loss seemed almost as inexplicable as last week's comeback win in overtime at Houston.
The Seahawks ran more than three dozen plays in Colts territory. Wilson threw for 210 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 102 yards. Lynch rushed for 102 yards, and the defense allowed just 317 yards, 120 in the fourth.
But when Seattle blocked a punt that bounced into the end zone, it was recovered out of bounds for a safety instead of a touchdown. It also settled for four field goals while converting 2 of 12 third downs.
"We knew we were off to a good start," coach Pete Carroll said. "But settling for a field goal and not getting any points on the blocked kick — that would have been a much different margin."
